Still digging out of our 30" Blizzard - Walter Launt Palmer 1854-1932


When I first saw Walter Launt Palmer's (1854-1932) snowscapes, I was taken by all of the blue in the paintings. Born in Albany, New York, the son of sculptor Erastus Dow Palmer & the artist had studied with landscape painter Frederic Edwin Church. He painted his blue Albany in the Snow in 1871, when he was just 17. After several trips abroad, Palmer seemed to adopt the impressionists' color pallette, which he applied in subtle layers of oil, pastels, & gouache to create his remarkable New England snowscapes.
