Apart from the Stour Valley on the borders of Suffolk and Essex, where he grew up, Constable made more paintings and drawings in and around Salisbury than in any other part of England. He was a regular visitor for nearly twenty years, staying in the Close, first as guest of the bishop, then with his nephew, Archdeacon John Fisher. Paintings and drawings of Salisbury figure in every exhibition of Constable's art, but they have never been considered in isolation. This new study examines every aspect of Constable's connections with Salisbury, casting new light not only on the places and people, but on his intriguing interpretations of such familiar monuments as Salisbury Cathedral, Old Sarum and Stonehenge. Published to accompany the exhibition Constable and Salisbury, The Soul of Landscape at the Museum of Salisbury and South Wiltshire, situated within Salisbury Cathedral Close, it promotes a fresh understanding of Constable's art. AUTHOR: Timothy Wilcox is a writer and curator with a particular interest in British landscape painting and watercolours. He is the author of Samuel Palmer and The Glory of Watercolour and a contributor to Constable's Clouds and The Solitude of Mountains: Constable in the Lake District. 157 colour illustrations
