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.

Ignaz Gunther

Happy Birthday Ignaz Gunther!! Born in 1725, Ignaz Gunther was a Rococo sculptor from Bavaria. Gunther was a wood carver, working in religious themes, later his sculptures were painted by others. He settled in Munich where most of his work was completed. His figures are light with elongated limbs and rather angular fabric, finished in polychrome paint. The Guardian Angel is shown here.
