Artwork of the day

The month of January, Jacob Grimmer, 16th century, oil on panel, private collection
Grimmer painted all the twelve months of the year in similar circular panels probably symbolizing the cyclical course of the year. In each of the paintings he represents the monthly activities of the peasants along with powerful representations of the landscape as it changes along with the seasons.
