Our Top Five Paintings Of Snow

Artists have always been fascinated by snow and the challenges it poses. The impressionists even painted outside in the snow in their attempts to capture the way it changes the light.


Here are our top five paintings of snow.

This dynamic print by Edward Bawden was innovative in its use of extensive over-printing of a lighter colour on a darker first print. This technique combined with the use of bold and angular cuts really brings the atmosphere of the snow storm to life.
