Gail-Nina Anderson: The Four Seasons in Art - Winter £4


Bruegel’s snow scenes and the winter landscapes of the Dutch school give us a vision of the season, white-draped but bustling with human activity. Mediaeval illustrations may stress keeping warm and staying indoors, but later artists saw a splendour in frosty desolation and moonlight on snow. Winter is a shivering figure, a slushy lane, a game in the snow or a feast indoors, while Christmas imagery adds a symbolic resonance to the range of visualisations.
