Join Alan Murray to explore the contributions and contemporary approaches Constable and Turner brought to British landscape painting

Landscape painters, Turner and Constable were both influential and successful artists of their time.  Often pitted as rivals, Turner travelled extensively throughout his life and was known for dramatic seascapes and landscapes, while Constable who never left England, made his name depicting the nostalgic countryside of his youth. 

British Sign Language interpretation
