A selection of portrayals of the winter season drawn from the Tate's collection, and divided into themes such as Seasonal Views & Landscapes, Religious Imagery, Celebration & Festivity, and Friends & Family. Paintings, drawings, sculptures, illustrations and installations are supplemented by captions providing background detail about the art, artists and their subjects. Sometimes traditional, sometimes contemporary, often beautiful and occasionally telling, placed together these beautiful images create a fascinating and enlightening journey through the visual portrayal of winter and the holiday season in Western art.
