Description
Atmospheric Christmas cards gathering a festive selection of images featuring one of the earliest Christmas decorations: candles. Recalling the words of Jesus in John 8:12, ‘I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life’. Candles are central in the marking of Advent but also the traditional end of the Christmas season at Candlemas, on 2nd February. This date is when Christians would remove their decorations and Nativity scenes and take candles to church for a blessing, to then bring into their homes for the year ahead. Images comprise ‘The Christmas Tree’, an illustration by Marius Forestier (British, fl.1906-14); a detail from a 1930s poster from a New York theatre; Christmas postcards from c.1910 and a c.1940s design by the Czech artist Zdenek Guth; and a lantern scene by Molly Brett (1902-90).

Made exclusively for Museum Selection.
