Our Christmas card is the creation of Henry Xi Yang in Year 12. The Spirit of Unity draws upon the charm of vintage hand-painted posters, aiming to evoke nostalgia and a comforting sense of familiarity for the viewers. It encapsulates the spirit of unity within the Dulwich College community, as individuals gather joyfully to decorate a Christmas tree. Influenced by Jonathan Wateridge’s masterful utilisation of chiaroscuro, the artwork employs a dramatic interplay of light and shadow, aiming to achieve a mesmerising visual impact. Additionally, inspiration has been drawn from the works of historical artists such as Georges de La Tour, further enriching the piece with a timeless artistic resonance.
We hope you also enjoy the Dulwich College Chapel Choir singing Of the father’s heart begotten recorded in Christ’s Chapel.
