John Craxton, Still Life with Three Sailors, 1980-85

A world of private mystery: John Craxton, RA (1922 -2009)

A fresh retrospective on John Craxton - from his beginnings as a young hope of post-war British art, creating dark, meditative images of the natural world, to works of incredible vibrancy, light and colour from his later life in Crete.

Snow Country: Woodcuts of the Japanese Winter

Tue 2 October 2012 - Sun 13 January 2013

Fitzwilliam Museum

Japanese artists have long responded to the beauty of a world changed by frozen forms and stilled by a blanket of white snow.

This selection of prints by artists such as Hokusai and Hiroshige includes stories from poetry and myth, with journeys, ambushes and skirmishes in the snow; children throwing snowballs and building snow-rabbits; the everyday struggle of travellers making their way through snowdrifts; the stillness of people indoors gazing out at the unbroken spell of freshly frozen snow; and the almost abstract world of a pure snowy landscape where people play little part.

All works in the exhibition are from the Fitzwilliam Museum's collection.

Cost: Free
