The beauty of nature. Winter - Sunset in the Forest (1862) was painted by the American artist Louis Rémy Mignot (1831-1870) The painting shows the sunset over a bare winter landscape. And in the center, barely visible, is a lone figure, emphasizing the magnificence of nature compared to mankind. Mignot was associated with the Hudson River School of landscape artists, a mid-19th century group American artists, who wanted to capture the natural beauty of the Hudson Valley in the state of New York. Mignot's style within the Hudson River School was fairly unique as he had grown up in the South of the United States as well as his French parents. Hudson had spent considerable time in Europe in his early twenties and had even traveled to Ecuador. As we can see in this painting, he specialized in capturing vegetation and atmospheric effects. #Art #Painting #Artwork #ArtHistory #HistoryofArt #OilPainting #OilonCanvas #AmericanArtist #AmericanArt #AmericanPainter #HudsonRiverSchool #Hudson #NewYork #Landscape #LandscapePainting #Sunset #Winter #RemyMignot #Mignot #Atmospheric #Atmosphere
