"Thanks to art, instead of seeing a single world, our own, we see it multiply until we have before us as many worlds as there are original artists."
This snow scene with a lonely figure is just plain good.Thank you for showing it.Bob
Sisley is the only impressionist who painted snow scenes. He does not receive the recognition he deserves. Karen
http://www.jerryandmartha.com/yourdailyart/2007/02/beauty-of-winter.htmlHere is one more Impressionist snow scene for you.
Sisley produced some really beautiful work. He seems, however, to have been rather fond of the device of a narrow path between walls/fence, with a little figure of a woman at the bend in the path to catch the attention. The artchive's section on Sisley has two very similar examples, "Garden path in Louveciennes (Chemin de l'Etarche)", 1873, and "Snow at Louveciennes", 1874. When I was teaching art, I used to use these as examples of one-point perspective. The views are almost identical, except that the season has changed. I used to joke that it must be the same woman as well, except that she had had to change her umbrells!
'Sisley is the only impressionist who painted snow scenes.'This statement is not true.http://www.oilpaintingfactory.com/Impressionism-snow-scenery-oil-painting.html
‘Škofja Loka in the snow’ by Slovenian impressionist painter Ivan Grohar (1867-1911) is further proof of anonymous' false statement.
