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.

Walker Evans

Happy Birthday Walker Evans!! The American photographer was born in 1903, in St. Louis, Missouri to a wealthy family. Evans studied French Literature before leaving school, traveled to Paris and then went on to pursue photography. He was a photographer hired by the Resettlement Administration, to document farm families of the Great Depression. His work is sensitive and insightful; his characters tug at our heartstrings.
