Monday Masterclass: favorite winter paintings

Today we’ll take a quick trip back in time to a place in France on the outskirts of Paris that inspired a group of artists.  These Impressionists painted the winter scenes of Louveciennes and they painted each other, leaving behind the essence and the enchantment of a wintery world.

Alfred Sisley. Snow at Louveciennes (1874)
Berthe Morisot, Winter (1880)
Alfred Sisley, Snow at Louveciennes (1878)
Camille Pissarro, Road to Versailles at Louveciennes (1869)
Camille Pissarro, Morning Sunlight on Snow (1895)
Edouard Manet, Portrait of Berthe Morisot, 1873
Alfred Sisley, Snow at Louveciennes (1878)

There is good evidence that art improves our mental health and well-being, that creating art as well as viewing artwork lifts our spirits, sparks curiosity and conversation, and helps us to connect with one another in unexpected ways (read more about it here).

Perhaps it’s looking through art books, or finding a special painting for our walls, or taking a trip to a museum.  Whatever it is for you, I’d love to hear about it and your favorite winter paintings too.

Here is a link to a wonderful article about buying art for your home (in case you find it a bit daunting like many of us).  And here and here are two of my favorite places to buy paintings online. 

Happy Monday!
