A selection of the most beautiful, touching, transformative and amusing expressions of the winter season drawn from Tate's collection

Divided into key themes - `Seasonal Views & Landscapes',`Religious Imagery', `Celebration & Festivity' and `Friends & Family/Journeying' - each of the works of art included has been individually selected for the particular way in which the artist has attempted to capture this special time of year. Works of art - including paintings, drawings, sculptures, illustrations and installations - are punctuated by brief captions adding background detail or additional information about the art, artists  and their subjects.

Featured artists: J.M.W Turner, Ruskin Spear, Norbert Goeneutte,  Marie-Louise Von Motesiczky, Paul Nash, Carel Weight, BenNicholson, Lucien Pissarro, L.S. Lowry, Richard Hamilton, Peter Doig, Grayson Perry and David Shrigley. 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.
