I don't want our subscribers and supporters to think that we have forgotten that more than half the world is not sweltering in the heat. I am hearing regularly from the UK how cold and damp it has been and so this blog is dedicated to artistic works that have been inspired by winter.
Below are six paintings that were inspired by winter.
See if you can match to each painting the year it was created and its title and artist.
The paintings were created in the following years: 1894, 1925, c.1935, 1950, 1994, 2006.
And the titles and artists are:
Beyond Man's Footsteps by Briton Riviere
Majesty by Tacita Dean
Ski Jacket by Peter Doig
Berkeley Square by Stanislawa De Karlowska
View from the Window, Vienna by Marie-Louise Von Motesiczky
Glacier Crystal, Grindelwald by Wilhelmina Barns-Graham

A very special thank you to everyone who has sent their concern and best wishes to us down here in Australia as we experience the worst bushfires our country has ever known. The support in so many ways from around the world has been amazing. Thank you.
