John Constable’s Salisbury Cathedral from the Meadows 1831 is considered one of his most famous landscapes.

National Museum Cardiff will be the first of five venues to display this important ‘six footer’ which was recently purchased by Tate. The painting will be accompanied by other works by Constable, as well as by artists who inspired and revered him.

The display will be complemented by a series of events and learning activities.

Aspire is a partnership programme enabling audiences of all ages to enjoy and learn more about the work of John Constable by touring Salisbury Cathedral from the Meadows 1831 to five UK institutions. Aspire is supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund and the Art Fund.
