Curator’s Talk: Constable “Truth to Nature”

Join Julia Carver for an overview of Constable in Bristol: “Truth to Nature”.

In “Truth to Nature” we start with Constable’s most iconic painting to ask what the English landscape means to you. Looking at landscape before and after Constable, through to how artists today are approaching the climate crisis, exhibition curator Julia Carver will talk through some of the key themes of the show in exhibition gallery one and three.
