Today is the winter solstice in the Northern Hemisphere— the first day of winter and the shortest day of the year.  We haven't seen snow yet in Philadelphia, but we're dreaming of this cozy wintery landscape.
"A Snowy Night," 1939, by George Sotter

Auguste Rodin’s *The Kiss*, 1882
I know that this is a sculpture of sexual love, of a story of an affair and a pair meant to wander together in hell, but I can’t help but see love at every angle. The tenderness of his hand around her hip, her arms thrown, carefree and trusting, around his next, toes curled in a passion that forever and only exists between them.

Philadelphia-born Sarah Dodson studied in the city before moving to France and England, where she developed her talent for imaginative historical figure painting. In this picture she references the famous honey that the beekeepers of ancient Athens produced in the Hymettus mountains. Visit this portrait in our American galleries.
"Honey of the Hymettus," 1891, by Sarah Paxton Ball Dodson (On loan from the Thomas H. and Diane DeMell Jacobsen Ph.D. Foundation)
