Expectation had been great all day. Then, on a murky, thundery afternoon, it finally appeared. John Constable’s ‘Salisbury Cathedral from the Meadows’ (1831), on loan from the Tate, London. All 1.52 m x 1.9 m of it. The only question was…would it fit through the door? Of course it would. It is an old friend who has been here before….
Purchased with assistance from the Heritage Lottery Fund, the Manton Foundation, Art Fund (with a contribution form the Woolfson Foundation) and Tate Members.
