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.

Eustache Le Sueur

Happy Birthday Eustache Le Sueur!! French painter born in 1616, in Paris, whose father was a sculptor. He was a pupil of Voulet and also greatly influenced by Poussin and Raphael. Early on Le Sueur turned from sculpting to drawing and painting and became known as the "French Raphael". Considered his greatest work, St. Paul Preaching at Ephesus is reminiscent of Raphael's School of Athens.
