Looking at the View

Tate Britain in London has opened an interesting free display of landscapes Looking at the View, which runs until 2 June (CLICK). It juxtaposes traditional landscape paintings with modern photos and paintings for comparison. The oil painting shown here is John Hill's Interior of the Carpenter's Shop at Forty Hill, Enfield (1813). Forty Hall is itself well worth a visit: a Grade 1 listed manor house built in the 1620s. It reopened in 2012 after restoration (CLICK).
