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.
Harriet Ann Jacobs
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.
