Talk | Ian Warrell: Turner and Constable in Sussex
[ Talk )
Join Turner expert and former curator at Tate Britain, Ian Warrell, as he explores the life and work of Turner and Constable in Sussex.
John Constable and J.M.W. Turner both came to Sussex to work during the 19th century, but responded in very different ways to the landscape they encountered.
In our exhibition, Sussex Landscape: Chalk, Wood and Water, you can see examples from both artists. We have Constable’s painting of the fashionable resort of Brighton and Turner’s Chichester Canal, painted while a guest of Lord Egremont at Petworth House.
Ian Warrell will explore both paintings and more as he traces the work of Turner and Constable in the Sussex landscape.
Tickets cost £15 and include a glass of wine or a soft drink.
Our galleries, including the Sussex Landscape: Chalk, Wood and Water exhibition will be open until 7pm. If you would also like to visit the exhibitions, you can book your ticket here. (Entry to the galleries is not included in event ticket).
