I've got some ideas (George Inness, and Aldro Hibbard come to mind), but I would love to know what folks out there consider their favorites.
As it happens, I've been asked to write an article on killer snow paintings for the Mass Humanities weblog. I'd love to know what you think should be included. In other words ... Please Help!
Here are a few immediate picks to get things started.
|Casper David Friedrich, Cairn in Snow, 1807|
|Louis Remy Mignot, Snow Scene, 1853-54|
|Albert Bierstadt, The Snow Mountain, 1863-68|
|George Inness, Home at Montclair, 1892|
|Muhlenhaupt, Title?, 1890|
|Childe Hassam, Boston Common at Twilight, 1885-86|
|Bruce Crane, Title?, c. 1900|
|N.C. Wyeth, Snow Platform, 1906|
|Walter Launt Palmer, Snowy Landscape (look at that light!)|
- Thanks to Mary Eickson!
|John Henry Twachtman, Winter Harmony, 1890-1900|
|Aldro Hibbard, c. 1920|
|Eric Aho, February, c. 2010|
Any other great snow or winter paintings out there? Please chime in.
