A new side to popular painter John Constable is unveiled at the Brighton Art Gallery from 8 April 2017. It is the first show of his landscapes painted while living in the area from 1824 to 1828. “Each work was made in two hours on the spot,” says curator Peter Harrap who now lives in Constable’s Brighton home, “with the abstract qualities you still get the immediate feeling of him walking through the landscape.” See Brighton Beach, Devil’s Dyke and more. Personal items like his paint box make this a movingly intimate show.
Constable and Brighton is on from 8 April to 8 October 2017 at the Brighton Museum & Art Gallery, Royal Pavilion Gardens, Brighton, BN1 1EE, 0300 029 0900
