TURNER VS CONSTABLE: THE GREAT BRITISH PAINT OFF NICOLA MOORBY Author and Art Historian Wednesday 26 February 2020

This is the story of the epic rivalry between the two giants of British art, J.M.W. Turner and John Constable.

This study day sets them head-to-head and examines their differences, their similarities, their battles and their shared triumphs. But who will ultimately be crowned star painter?
