AN IMPRESSIONIST SPRING IN JANUARY

IN THE FLOWERING WOODS

 

 

 

The beautiful spring came; and when nature remembers her loveliness, the human soul is apt to revive also.

Spring Landscape with a Farmer and White Horse, full painting

Here’s a welcome harbinger of spring for all of us inhabiting the Northern Hemisphere courtesy of American Impressionist Childe Hassam (1859-1935).  A prolific artist  who spent many hours trekking through the countryside, especially in the Northeastern part of the United States.  African American author Harriet Ann Jacobs (1813-1897) is becoming increasingly renowned for Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl, a vivid account of human bondage in the pre-Civil War South.

Can you find the horse and the farmer?
