A Walk at Dusk/Friedrich
 
A love for winter vistas and snowy scenes is an essential part of the modern condition, and an important, if often overlooked, theme of modern painting and photography in the West. New Yorker contributor Adam Gopnik speaks about the vision of winter in modern art as it coursed through the German Romantic (and nationalist) paintings of Caspar David Friedrich to the sublime Swiss vistas of J. M. W. Turner, on to the stylish Japanese-inflected snowstorms of Claude Monet and Camille Pissaro, and beyond.
