Snowscapes by Walter Launt Palmer

Silent Dawn, Oil on canvas, 30 x 40 inches, 1919

I first came across this artist and beautiful snowy scene from the Artwork of the Day on the Metropolitan Museum of Art website.

Winter landscape, Oil on canvas, 30 x 25 inches

You can read some biographical information about Walter Launt Palmer and see more his paintings on the blog Underpaintings.


  1. I love winter paintings, and these are wonderful! "Silent Dawn" is a great and fitting title.

  2. Beautiful! I love how he captured the light and stillness in each scene. I could gaze at those paintings for hours. :)

  3. I love them too, the snowscapes he created are so serene and beautiful.
