Famous canvases depicting winter
The most wonderful time of the year
They say winter is the most wonderful time of the year. Do you agree? It gets so beautiful outside in winter and maybe it is the reason why so many artists devoted their canvases to this great season. Everything is covered in a white fluffy blanket of snow. As it reflects millions of lights around it looks like someone accidentally (or on purpose, who knows) spread sparkling little diamonds on the ground. And of course, everyone loves winter for Christmas! Children as well as adults wait for miracles to happen and sometimes they do! Maybe it is another reason why artists created many outstanding canvases depicting winter. Let’s see what some of them are.
Famous and astonishing winter paintings
- The Magpie by Claude Monet was inspired by such artists as Pissarro, Renoir, Sisley and Gustave Courbet. They usually depicted horses, houses, people and only then snow. However, Monet decided to create a canvas showing first of all the beauty of snow, and then add something to it. It was a small lonely magpie. The interplay of light and shadow helped him to show the atmosphere of a cold and nice winter day.
- Landscape with snow by Vincent van Gogh. When he, at the age of 27, visited his brother in Paris he was disappointed and decided to move to a warmer place. However, when he got off the train in a supposed-to-be-sunny Arles it was snowing really hard. Then after a couple of minutes when snow started to melt, he wanted to capture it and created this wonderful masterpiece.
- Breton Village in the snow by Paul Gauguin. One of the most interesting things about this painting is that it was found on the artist’s easel when he was found dead in his workroom on the 8th of May 1903.
- Winter Landscape with skaters by Hendrick Avercamp. He was a Dutch artist who worked in the genre of realistic landscapes. Nature in his paintings was just as it appeared in reality. The reason why he chose that genre is because he was deaf and mute. Since he could only perceive the world by means of his eyes, he could perfectly feel the colors and light. Hendrick Avercamp could notice and depict even the tiniest details in complex compositions with many people. His realistically looking canvases made him very well-known and extremely popular.
