John Constable: His Art and Life

140 TUTOR: Jan Cox

John Constable is recognised as a leader of landscape painting in Britain in the nineteenth century, yet official recognition by the Royal Academy was a long time coming. From early representations of his native Suffolk to his famous 'Six-Footers', this course demonstrates that Constable was far more radical and innovative than his reputation suggests. Key pictures include the iconic 'The Hay Wain' (1821; National Gallery) and depictions of Salisbury Cathedral and Hampstead Heath.
