Wade around in John Constable’s Water Meadows

  • Post category:News

Artist John Constable spent many happy hours painting the waterways of his eastern England where he grew up in what is now Essex and Suffolk. Rivers ran past the mills owned by his father in Flatford and Dedham and these feature in a number of his paintings. When away from home, it must have been natural for him to want to capture the distinctive watery landscape of other places, like this scene of water meadows in Salisbury – one of my favourite works of his in our collection.
