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.

John Marin

Happy Birthday John Marin!! American painter, born in 1870, Marin was influenced in style and technique by French artists such as Cezanne, but he definitely developed his own American subjects and themes. He traveled abroad from 1905-10 and then returned and was taken under Alfred Stieglitz' wing. His compositions are simple; his color intense and expressive. Cezanne and the Fauves' influences are seen in the painting included here: Tunk Mountains, Autumn, Maine (1945).
