Works of art by the Dutch artist Jan van Huysum are travelling the country to some unusual venues as part of an innovative approach to promote ways in which art and culture can support well-being. A second aim is to reach audiences who have been disproportionately affected by the Covid pandemic. Each display, which explores one of six “Ways to Well-being”, namely Be Active, Care (for the planet), Connect, Give, Keep Learning and Take Notice, has already visited Cornwall and Norfolk. Next week, Huysum’s “Flowers in a Terracotta Vase” (1736-37) will be on display in Barnsley Market between 15 and 20 June.
