Advent Calendar: Day 17

Christmas Preparations at Beaulieu Charles Ernest Cundall Southampton City Art Gallery

This work is just bursting with life and activity and there are so many charming details. The chaotic cascade of white feathers falling in the middle of the painting contrasts so well with the focused calm of the two figures hunched over their tasks. I particularly like the small dog who is attentively watching the live chickens and geese inside the open crate to the right.

Only seven days left to go don't forget to check back for tomorrow's image.
