Let It Snow!

Snowy landscapes have long inspired watercolor artists to pick up a brush and capture the scenes in paint. Here’s a look at how a few masters have tackled the subject.

“Winter Scene in Moonlight” (watercolor and gouache, 11 7/8 x 15 3/16 in.) by Henry Farrer (American, London 1844–1903 New York)
“Winter Scene with Two Men” (Watercolor over graphite, heightened with white, 12 13/16 x 18 3/16 in.) by Eugène Cicéri (French, Paris 1813–1890 Fontainebleau)
“A Successful Hunt” (gouache, watercolor, gum Arabic glazes, charcoal on white wove paper mounted on board, 14 5/8 × 9 3/16 in.) by Henry François Farny (American (born France), Ribeauvillé 1847–1916 Cincinnati, Ohio)
Henry Fukuhara, “Manzanar in the Snow” (watercolor, painted at Brighten Gardens. Assisted by Al Setton)
