The nineteenth-century painter John Constable (1776-1837) ranks with J.M.W. Turner for innovating English landscape painting and deepening appreciation for the genre. Constable devoted himself to painting the places that were intimately related to his own life in England: numerous paintings of Salisbury, Hampstead, Brighton, and the rural landscapes of his native Suffolk speak of everything he loved and nurtured with such great care.
In addition to oils, water colors, drawings, and prints from the Tate Collection, the exhibition will also display around twenty works by contemporaries of Constable. Never wavering in his pursuit, Constable brought to life a world of vibrant landscape painting that will be presented through eighty-five works, including some outstanding pieces from collections in Japan.
