About Santa Claus
With a ho, ho, ho and a wink and a wave, Santa Claus ushers in the eagerly anticipated climax to the season. He is all things wonderful, generous and good-humored during the holidays. The enduring fascination for jolly St. Nick is evident in his omnipresence in Christmas art, including paintings, prints and sculptures. Each culture has its own version of the Santa story, but the mission is the same -- to spread good cheer and goodwill to everyone, aided by elves, reindeer and a magical sleigh. St. Nick flies into hearts and homes but once a year, and holiday art captures this whimsy as a gentle reminder that we are all one.
