Thoma enrolled in art school in 1859, but it was his exposure to modern art in Paris, in 1868—especially a visit to Gustave Courbet's studio—that made a great impression on him. He later came under the sway of Arnold Böcklin and Symbolist art. This painting reprises a composition of 1892 that embodies his spiritual view of nature.
Hans Thoma (German, Bernau im Schwarzwald 1839–1924 Karlsruhe)

Italian Time Travel Trip 1906 Italy was getting ready for the 1908 Summer Olympics when Mount Vesuvius erupted. It became active in January and culminated with an eruption on April 5th, when Vesuvius killed over 100 people and ejected the most lava ever recorded from a Vesuvian eruption ever. Government funds previously allocated for the Summer Olympics had to be diverted to the reconstruction of Naples, requiring a new location for the Olympics to be found. April 10 – The lava flow from Mount Vesuvius, which had almost ceased, starts again in the direction of Torre Annunziata; reached the cemetery of that town and then turned in the direction of Pompeii (again!). April 28 – The Milan International world's fair opens in Milan. It welcomed 4,012,776 visits and covered 100 hectares (250 acres). May 6 – The first Targa Florio, an open road endurance automobile race, starts in the mountains of Sicily near Palermo. The race was initiated by Vincenzo Florio and is considered to be the oldest sports car racing event.
