My art (Mapleside) on top, Anselm Kieffer below. I love his work, in particular his lighter work. Similarities are coincidental but he is one of today's artists I don't mind resembling. If even for just one painting.

Sanford Robinson Gifford was a successful landscape painter who was one of the founders of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. After traveling abroad to study the works of the Old Masters in the 1850s, he spent the majority of the 1860s painting in the American northeast. Winter Twilight may have been painted near his family’s home in Hudson, New York. Gifford’s masterful treatment of light and atmosphere elevates the everyday subject of three ice skaters huddled on a frozen pond. A critic who saw this painting in Gifford’s studio remarked that it was one of the artist’s “happiest efforts…with its still, dream-like beauty.” #hudsonriverschool#landscape#winter#twilight#americanpainter#landscapepainting#americanart#fineart#winterart#sanfordrobinsongifford#gifford#colors#sunset
