Landscape with Snow (1888)

Landscape with Snow (1888)
Painted in February of 1888, Van Gogh painted the dreary furrowed fields of winter. A lone figure with his dog trudge toward home. Located in the Guggenheim, I was moved to view this painting this past weekend.

Robert Rauschenberg

Happy Birthday Robert Rauschenberg!! American painter born in 1925, Rauschenberg was a Pop Artist. He was born in Port Arthur, Texas and after serving in the Navy for 3 years he happened into an art museum and suddenly realized art was a viable career. He went to Kansas City Art Institute, traveled to Paris and eventually met Jasper Johns at Black Mountain College, in North Carolina. The two of them founded the movement called Pop Art and since then he has spent his energy on juxtaposing the popular culture, everyday life, with his art.
