Talk: Constable's Late Work & Salisbury Cathedral From The Meadows

Constable's Late Work
Salisbury Cathedral From The Meadows,
a talk by
Anne Lyles
Salisbury Museum.
The King's House, 65 The Close,
Salisbury, SP1 2EN
Thursday 20th October 2016,
6.30 p.m. to 8.00 p.m. 

There was a radical shift in the second half 
of Constable’s career as the ‘truth to nature’ 
of his earlier Suffolk works began to give 
way to a more synthetic, studio-based practice 
and a wider range of subject-matter. 
In this lecture Anne Lyles will discuss the 
paintings, watercolours and drawings 
Constable made after about 1825, with their 
 looser, vivid handling. She will also examine 
the late Salisbury Cathedral from the Meadows 
 in the context of Constable’s mature style, 
and consider how it was viewed by his 
contemporaries as well as the changing reactions 
to the picture over time.
