Details

In a letter to his friend the Revd John Fisher of 23 October 1821, John Constable famously observed that, ‘It will be difficult to name a class of landscape in which the sky is not the key note, the standard of scale and the chief organ of sentiment’. Inspired by Constable’s statement this exhibition will focus on aerial rather than terrestrial landscapes in art. Skies can represent infinity and the realm of the divine, clouds transience or magnificence, storms threat or drama, while sunrises and sunsets evoke meditations upon death and renewal. The curator of the Skyscape exhibition, Katherine Wodehouse, will give an insight into the the art of landscape from a new perspective and provide her thoughts on the stimulating variety of works that are sourced from the Ashmolean Museum Western Art department’s collection of prints and drawing.
