Salisbury and South Wiltshire Museum Show Constable’s Salisbury Paintings & Drawings
Salisbury, UK.- Constable’s paintings and drawings of Salisbury and its surroundings have figured in every major overview of his work, but they have never, until now, been considered as a subject complete in itself. “Constable and Salisbury”, on view at the Salisbury and South Wiltshire Museum until September 25th, will show well-known pictures in context for the first time, as well as giving the public the opportunity to see outstanding lesser-known works.John Constable (1776 – 1837) made more paintings and drawings in and around Salisbury than of any other area, apart from the Stour Valley, where he grew up. Constable’s first short stay in Salisbury was in 1811, and he came to the city seven times. His visits to this area, and his friendship with Archdeacon John Fisher, were of great significance to him.
