The Christmas Story Told in Paintings

The List are teaming up with Edinburgh Art Tours and Crescent House to offer three readers the chance to win a pair of tickets to their The Christmas Story told through Paintings festive tour.

Relive The Christmas Story told through Paintings this festive season with Edinburgh Art Tours and Crescent House. Basing his lively narrative on paintings in the National Gallery of Scotland, throughout Advent art historian Dr Colin Bailey complements the Christmas Market in Edinburgh and the build-up to the festivities by examining in detail works on show depicting the events surrounding the birth of Christ.

Intricately discussing the artists' techniques, use of symbols and place in history, this guided tour will include Vitale da Bologna’s mid-fourteenth-century Adoration of the Kings; Filippino Lippi’s enchanting small Nativity dating from the late fifteenth century; another glorious Adoration of the Magi by Jacopo Bassano, painted in 1542; and Domenichino’s early Baroque masterpiece The Adoration of the Shepherds.

The tour starts outside The National Gallery of Scotland on the Mound.
