Consider the Art of the Christmas Window at Fortnum & Mason

As readers may have noticed, it is now December, so your author will relent and start talking more about Christmas things. And let's start with Fortnum and Mason, who this year are celebrating the Art of the Christmas Window, with their seasonal window display.

They've teamed up with the National Gallery to produce their own three dimensional interpretations of a number of famous paintings from Western European art in their displays, including Willem Claesz. Heda's 'Still Life: Pewter and Silver Vessels and a Crab', as shown in a dodgy photo above.

The windows were revealed at 5pm on Tuesday 9th November, and have been in planning by chief designer Paul Symes and his team since April. For more information click here.
