Constable at V&A

Tomorrow the V&A Museum in London opens Constable: The Making of a Master. For the first time Constable's major works will be presented alongside his preparatory sketches and the paintings of old masters of classical landscape whose values he assimilated and transformed into popular images of the English countryside. Shown is Constable's Salisbury Cathedral from the Meadows (1831). Sadly, admission costs an arm and a leg: £14.00 plus booking fee £1.40 = £15.40 for adults, £13.40 for silver surfers (CLICK).
