DescriptionAs the seasons change, so do our moods. Some people are happiest in the sun-drenched summer; others long for a brisk winter day. Many find the crisp air of autumn refreshing; for others it brings nostalgia for the warmth of spring. For artists, these seasonal responses are expressed in their work. This calendar presents Van Gogh's orchard in springtime and Monet's haystacks under a blanket of snow, a day at the beach by Winslow Homer and an Autumn Landscape from Tiffany Studios, among many others. Whatever the weather outside your window, you can turn to a new, seasonal work of art each week.
The joys of the table include not just food and drink, but also plates and serving pieces, silverware, linens, and floral arrangements. These items have proved irresistible to artists, from ancient Egypt and Rome to the Netherlands of the seventeenth century, from the Impressionists to the present day, resulting in still-life paintings as well as beautifully crafted tableware. This year's calendar features tantalizing paintings by masters of the genre, such as Meléndez, de Heem, and Cézanne; enchanting fruit- and-flower images by Monet and Renoir; and a beautifully crafted sixteenth-century Turkish dish, a sixteenth-century Japanese ewer, and a twenty-first- century coffeepot.
