Ice Age

Winter in art has many facets. From the ‘Little Ice Age’ in the seventeenth century to the depiction of snow and ice as symbols of cold, stasis and isolation, this selection of works shows winter not only from its attractive side. And yet the promise of a new beginning also slumbers in the cold season. In their pictures, the artists broach the social, political and ecological topics of their time.
