A Selection of Christmas Paintings

Christmas by Christopher Corr – The Nightingale Project

Collection:  The Nightingale Project

It is a little tradition on the website that in the week before Christmas Day I publish a post that shows how artists have captured the Christmas spirit.

A couple of the pictures show the effects of the First World War which is perhaps fitting considering it is the centenary of the beginning of the conflict. The criteria I use in selection is that the subject matter involves London or the painting is available to see in London.
