A fresh and lively biography of the revolutionary landscape painter John Constable.
John Constable, who captured the landscapes and skies of southern England in a way never before seen on canvas, is beloved but little-understood artist.
His paintings reflect visions of landscape that shocked and perplexed his contemporaries: attentive to detail, spontaneous in gesture, brave in their use of color. His landscapes show that he had sharp local knowledge of the environment. His skyscapes show a clarity of expression rarely seen in other artist's work. The figures within show an understanding of the human tides of his time. And his late paintings of Salisbury Cathedral show a rare ability to transform silent, suppressed passion into paint. Hardcover, 496 pages.
