Join Christina Bradstreet for a 5-minute meditation with Van Huysum's Flowers in a Terracotta Vase.
We recommend finding a quiet spot and watching on 'full screen' to get the most out of the experience:
5-minute meditation: Van Huysum's 'Flowers in a Terracotta Vase'
Take 5 minutes for a mindful look at Jan van Huysum's 'Flowers in a Terracotta Vase.'
Jan van Huysum Visits
This summer, 'Flowers in a Terracotta Vase' is going on a tour of the UK, visiting a series of unusual and unexpected locations.
Stopping off in Cornwall, Norfolk, the East Midlands, South Yorkshire, Scotland and Northern Ireland, the painting will go on display in non-museum venues, including a food bank and community library, a covered market, a former department store and community centres. Find out more.
6 Ways to Wellbeing
The tour promotes ways in which art and culture can support wellbeing and reach audiences who have been disproportionately affected by Covid-19 and the UK lockdowns. Each destination on the tour explores one of six ‘Ways to Wellbeing': Connect; Be Active; Take Notice; Keep Learning; Give; and Care (for the Planet).
We hope that this meditation might help you to pause, take 5 minutes for yourself, and to look at art in a new or different way.
