Predictive Analytics Blog – The Best of 2021
It’s that time again. The year is coming to an end and we know you’re all eagerly awaiting our “Best of 2021” blog articles.
Every year we come up with a theme under which we decorate the five most successful blog articles.
We know you’ve all been working hard this year, the pandemic isn’t over yet, and the Christmas break is well deserved.
That’s why we’d like to commend to you the words of John Steinbeck: “The art of resting is part of the art of working.”
And that is also our motto this year: art.
Each post will be presented under a famous work of art. Grab a cup of tea and rest for a moment. While doing so, you can relax and revel in our “artful” contributions.
At this point, a little information about the cover picture: It was painted in 1891 by the British artist Alfred Sisley. The painting is called “Rue Eugène Moussoir at Moret: Winter”. The painting, with its nuanced color palette and skillfully executed brushstrokes, is one of several created by Sisley in the winter of 1891 in Moret, south of Paris. It depicts Rue Eugène Moussoir, just minutes from Sisley’s home. Source: The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s.
With this, we herald a restful and reflective Christmas season and would also like to say THANK YOU.
