Salisbury Cathedral from the Meadows by John Constable mounted art print (25 x 20 cm)
25 x 20 cm mounted art print of Salisbury Cathedral from the Meadows by John Constable from Tate, London Collection. Inside image measures 17 x 15 cm.
John Constable (11 June 1776 – 31 March 1837) was an English landscape painter in the Romantic tradition.
Salisbury Cathedral from the Meadows, which Constable began painting in 1830, shows the cathedral from the north-west, looking across the River Nadder from a point near a footbridge known as the Long Bridge.
A team of three horses pulls a cart across the river from the left; cattle graze in the meadows in the right distance; and the centre foreground is occupied by a black and white sheepdog whose intent gaze is turned inwards towards the cathedral as if to direct the viewer towards the building or the storm that sweeps over it.
