John Constable's English Landscapes. Masterpieces from the Tate Collection
John Constable's English Landscapes. Masterpieces from the Tate Collection John Constable (1776–1837) is one of England's most famous painters. With JMW Turner, he made 19th century British landscape painting flourish. Constable sought and found his motives exclusively in his family environment, the county of Suffolk and the vicinity of Salisbury, Hampstead and Brighton. Constable also influenced French Romanticism and the Barbizon School. The exhibition represents a first in Luxembourg and offers the rare opportunity to experience this English classic on the Continent – including his world famous painting Salisbury Cathedral from the Meadows. In addition, the collection of European art from the 17th to the 19th century at the Villa Vauban offers a multitude of interesting links with Constable's landscape painting.
