Constable & Salisbury: The Soul of Landscape

A major exhibition at the Salisbury and South Wiltshire Museum

20 May - 25 September 2011

Paintings and drawings of Salisbury and its surroundings have figured in every major overview of Constable’s work but, until this exhibition, they were never considered as a subject complete in itself. This show promoted a fresh understanding of Constable as an artist. It displayed well-known pictures in context for the first time, as well as giving the public the opportunity to see outstanding lesser-known works.
