In this new edition centred on winter we will be looking at this season in order to discover works in the museum that reflect nature and light at this time of the year, followed by a visit to the Royal Botanical Garden.

The Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum has an excellent holding of winter landscapes featuring depictions of the snow-covered natural world in works from the 17th to the 20th centuries. Scenes in which the principal elements are snow and the frozen atmosphere, in tones of white, grey and blue, guide us through the museum’s galleries. The visit continues in the Royal Botanic Garden where an expert will introduce participants to the way the vegetation adapts to winter, the plants that flower at this time and how the trees acclimatize.

The tour of the galleries, which is the first part of the activity, is available in virtual form using the Second Canvas app, with live explanations by a guide and the chance to appreciate the work at an unprecedented level of detail.
