We can’t guarantee a white Christmas, but we have donned woolly hats and gloves to digout the most seasonal paintings in London and rated them in snowflakes for festive mood and that all-important X-mas factor. Go grab yourself a mulled wine, it's time to brave the chilliest paintings in town.

It’s a little bit funny, but Elton John’s got a great collection of modernist photography. As Tate Modern picks the best bits for its new show, 'The Radical Eye', we ask the Rocket Man what fuels his photographic love
London is jam-packed full of beautiful art, and it's not all tucked away in museums and galleries. So much of it is out in the streets, waiting to be admired, touched and clambered on (don't climb Nelson's Column, you will be arrested). So we pulled together a shortlist of the best public sculptures in London, and then we opened the vote out to the public. It shows that Londoners love art, they love fun, and they love having sculptures available to all.
Artist David Shrigley has made a huge thumbs-up sculpture for the Fourth Plinth. So our Art editor Eddy Frankel asked him to give a thumbs up or thumbs down to some important London stuff...
This year, the annual Hyundai Commission for Tate Modern’s vast Turbine Hall has fallen into the hands of Philippe Parreno. As expected, the French artist has gone big, gone grand, and gone and filled the space with bio-reactors, helium canisters and loads of fish. Plan your perfect visit with our guide here – featuring exhibition details, exclusive pictures and a chance to win tickets to an after-hours evening view.
The Turbine Hall has been filled with lights, screens, speakers and inflatable fish by the brilliant French artist Philippe Parreno. He sees his installation as a giant object made of many parts, all of which move and interact. But even though it’s all choreographed like a whacked-out art ballet, it’s designed to constantly realign in new ways. You’ll never see it the same way twice.
To celebrate our partnership with the Tate Modern, we're giving away 125 pairs of tickets to an exclusive after-hours view of Philippe Parreno's new Hyundai Commission in the Turbine Hall. The event will take place on the evening on Monday October 24 2016, including drinks and a talk with the show's curator. Enter our ballot here.
