12 February 2019: Nicola Moorby Turner v Constable: The Great British Paint-Off!

This lecture describes the epic rivalry between the two giants of British art, J.M.W. Turner and John Constable. As unlike in temperament as their paintings were in style, these two creative geniuses transformed the art of landscape during the 19th century. This talk sets them head to head and examines their differences, their similarities, their battles and their shared triumphs. But who will ultimately be crowned the star painter?
