That’s just what I needed. Too hot down here in New Zealand today!
Lots to love on this page! The richness of colors in Courbet’s fox’s coat, the brilliant colors of winter in Parrish’s landscape, the lovely, sensuous lines of Mucha’s work and I could go on and on! They are all lovely! Thanks for sharing! :)
Every one of these is a beauty! Maxfield Parrish’s luminous blue snow really catches the eye.
I love these seasonal posts from Irene.
The top Twachtman is a particularly good example of his early work. I made the trip down to old lyme hoping to see it on view at the florence griswold (it wasn’t), and was in the end lucky enough to have someone take me in the vault for a quick look at it. It’s a great twachtman, if more academic than most of his work. Really well painted.
Also, edouard cortes painted winter light effects well. that’s a nice one.
As did Eugene Galien-Laloue
Thank you also for Irene Gallo’s link, and happy holidays to all!
Ancient/classical history: ‘The time when the nights are the longest and the days the shortest.’
what a visual tonic; what a balm! thank you so much for these!
When the winter solstice is appear, the day will be shortest and nights will be large
