GOODWILL ART GUIDE — Painting the Environment


SNOW



Illustrating the seasons of the year dates back in Europe to the decorated manuscripts of the Middle Ages, although most snow-covered winter landscapes come, of course, from northern countries. One of the earliest, 'Winter — Hunters in the Snow', painted by Pieter Brueghel the Elder in 1565, is full of icy calm and freezing grandeur. This is far removed in terms of quality from the familiar 'Christmas card art' adorned with snow like icing-sugar, to convey well-being.
Snow-covered landscapes are not always romantic, with people sliding jauntily across them in sledges. Some artists respond instead to the hardships endured in cold weather.
