Art Lunchtime Talk: The Constable Challenge
Salisbury Cathedral from the Meadows 1831 is the painting that John Constable wished to be remembered by. He called it his ‘Great Salisbury’. For him the monumental 6-foot work represented the culmination of his artistic achievements. It has long been considered a masterpiece of British art.
But how do you make this masterpiece relevant for today? This was the challenge set to Stephanie Roberts, Learning Trainee for the project. In this talk she will reflect on her role in the project and her experiences engaging different audiences with the painting.
