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.

Adriaen van de Velde

Happy Birthday Adriaen van de Velde!! Dutch painter, born in 1636, van de Velde was the son of painter Willem. His brothers were also painters. He trained under his father and Wynants, specializing in landscapes and Italian motifs, although he probably never visited Italy. Van de Velde also added figures into other painters’ works, including his brother, Wynants, Hobbema, and van der Heyden. His untimely death at age 36 cut short this brilliant painter’s career. Amusement on the Ice is the painting I am including here today...
