sunlit valley (1920) – charles courtney curran
this is what i want to do today.
just a bonus because his work is so nice:
esbjorn doing his homework (1912) – carl larsson
that feeling – when it’s so nice outside but you have work to do. man.
the ice maiden (1915) – edmund dulac
1915 you say! this looks like something a modern day illustrator would create and sell prints of on etsy. except 1000 x better (edmund would have been a hit on etsy)
deer in a snowy forest (1906) – charles marion russell
woman walking in an exotic forest (1905) – henri rousseau
(i think this is how alice must have felt)
Neither the cold of winter nor the gloom of the Great Depression kept the children of New York City from enjoying Central Park, the city’s greatest green space. Artist Carl Nelson had almost as much fun as the children, drawing by the hour despite the chill of February 1934. When his hands got cold, Nelson recalled, he “would go to the monkey house in the Central Park Zoo to warm up.”
