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.

Maurice Denis

Happy Birthday Maurice Denis!! French painter, born in 1870 and part of the Nabis group, Denis was also a writer and a Symbolist, He knew at an early age that his work was to be religious. Nabis means “prophet” and the painters involved in the movement believed they would create new ways of expression. Denis believed that a picture was meant to be first and foremost a flat plane with images painted upon it. This led the way for modernism. We have been walking in Central Park today and the image below reminds me a bit of that...
