The Art of David Cox
English landscape artist David Cox (1783-1859) has long been in the shadow of Constable and Turner. Yesterday the Yale Center for British Art in New Haven (title link) opened Sun, Wind, and Rain: The Art of David Cox, which marks next year's 150th anniversary of the artist’s death and shows more than 100 of his watercolours as well as oil paintings. This is the first major retrospective of his work in the USA. It continues until 4 January 2009, when it will cross the Atlantic for a showing at the Birmingham Museums & Art Gallery, which helped organise the exhibition.
