The great Russian landscape painter, Ivan Shiskin (1838-1892) very much liked painting trees and became famous for his forest landscapes. These are a couple of his paintings of pine trees laden with snow in winter
I'm minded to try and develop an educational resource website about Shiskin over the course of the winter months. I've not studied any Russian landscape artists yet although I have seen their paintings - some of which I like a lot.
Who are the artists which you think are great painters of winter landscapes?
Who else do you rate highly as a painter of trees?
Which Russian landscape painters do you like?
