1.en.04 Nordic landscapes. First day of Autumn: shrinking days and longer nights ahead

Yesterday, the 22nd September was the autumnal equinox.  So, despite bright sunny days and high temperatures, summer is officially over.

When do winter, spring, summer and autumn (fall in Am En) begin?

In this page you will find information about seasons, solstices and equinoxes.

This week, we are going to visit an exhibition in La Caixa.  Paintings will reflect different seasons. Let’s see if you act as real detectives. Look for examples of paintings that show how seasons affect landscapes.

Write in your notebook the title of the painting, the artist, and the season you think the artist wanted to represent.

Pieter Brueghel is one of the painters you will discover in the exhibition of Nordic Landscapes. Here follows a video with  a selection of some of his winter landscapes. Watch it before going on the outing. Then, let’s see if you recognise any of the paintings in Caixa Forum. Try your visual memory. Are you good at remembering images ?
