Constable: Salisbury Cathedral From the Meadows

  • 19 March — 11 September 2016 *on now

Oriel y Parc is thrilled to present John Constable's painting Salisbury Cathedral from the Meadows of 1831. One of the greatest masterpieces of British landscape art, it was the painting by which Constable wished to be remembered and represents what he considered to be the culmination of his artistic achievement. In 2013 Salisbury Cathedral from the Meadows was saved for the nation through the Heritage Lottery Fund, the Art Fund (with a contribution from the Wolfson Foundation), the Manton Foundation and Tate Members, and is presented at Oriel y Parc as part of the Aspire partnership programme.

This six month display will explore some of the themes in Constable's great painting, with connections to the Pembrokeshire landscape. Other works on show include images of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park by Constable's great rival, Joseph Mallord William Turner, from his trip to west wales in 1795.

Aspire enables audiences of all ages to enjoy and learn more about John Constable by touring the painting to venues across Wales, England and Scotland. Aspire is supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund and the Art FundT.
