Publisher's Summary

This study explores the work of Britain's foremost national landscape painter John Constable (1776-1837). Based on her view of the Constable exhibition at Tate Britain 2006, author Janet Barber considers the development of the artist, placing his works in context of the cultural conditions of his time, and noting contemporary reactions to his public exhibitions at the Royal Academy; efforts which often met with a profound distaste for their powerfully expressive naturalism. A quality that countered accepted frameworks of pictorial representation.
