New Acquisition at the National Gallery

If I didn't already have lots of wonderful advent images in store for the next three days I would have tried to find space for this work that the National Gallery have just acquired for the Nation.

Road in the Village of Baldersbronde (A Winter Day) Laurits Andersen Ring 1912

It is by the Danish artist Laurits Andersen Ring and it's acquisition will make it the first Danish work to enter a National collection in the UK.

You can see it in Room E at the National Gallery alongside works by Boudin, Leighton, Bonnington, Millet and Corot.

The painting makes me chilly just looking at the thick covering of snow and the purplish grey clouds hanging over the landscape with the promise of future flurries of snow.
