The Art of Snow and Ice: How Artists Transformed the Winter Landscape Sue Jackson Wednesday 20 November 2019

The bleak midwinter held little appeal to the artist for many centuries until Bruegel’s Hunters in the Snow in the 16th century. From pristine backdrop to the tempestuous snow storms of Turner to the capturing of ‘snow effect’ by the Impressionists, the ability of artists to convey snow as a symbol of peace but also of grandeur and terror is compelling. 

Originally in art and design publishing (Phaidon and Yale University Press), Sue Jackson now lectures for the National Trust, U3A, City Literary Institute and The Arts Society. A qualified Blue Badge Guide, she gives guided walks on various themes and has published work on the lost world of the River Fleet.
