I am enjoying viewing their online collection a great deal. I thought it would be fun for me, and wonderful for you, to view three very lovely wintry landscapes in the Museum's collection. :)
This beautiful painting was created by French artist, Victor Charreton in 1899, and is entitled, "Wet Snow, Auvergne." I love the use of color here and especially the use of the color purple.
Here is a beautiful painting, by American artist, Francis Guy, that is entitled, "Winter Scene in Brooklyn," ca. 1819-1820. I adore the fabulous cloud formations in this piece.
This painting, entitled, "Snow Scene" was created by American painter, Emile Branchard, ca.1920s-1930s. I love the sense of space in this painting; one can almost feel the bitter cold in this lonely landscape.
