A wintry display of Laing collection in our All About Art area
Until 19 March 2017 (historic exhibition)
Sun shines on snow in a kaleidoscope of colours in several of the pictures in this small display from the Laing collection.
A watercolour by Thomas Miles Richardson senior shows a country cottage through a blizzard, and JF Slater depicts a Northumberland view on a snowy night. A watercolour shows Newcastle in the grip of the Great Frost of 1784, with the Tyne frozen. Dorothy Carr created a striking picture of the frozen River Coquet in 1955. 19th-century Japanese artist Hiroshige also concentrated on design in his colour woodblock print of snow on Mount Hira.
