Dr Clarkson will provide an introduction to Constable's work and place him in an artistic context. This talk will look at his revolutionary practice of painting in the open air, and at how developments in art and science changed the way people saw the world around them. Dr Clarkson will discuss Constable's cloud studies and reveal how they are essential to understanding Constable's conception of painting.
