To celebrate the 200th anniversary of John Constables painting of Wivenhoe House we are putting on our own Constable exhibition.
From Sunday 18 September
To celebrate 200 years since landscape artist John Constable immortalised Wivenhoe House on canvas we are putting on our very own Constable exhibition.
Following on from our Constable Challenge day on June 12th we are showcasing both the best from the day as well as our very own 21st Century commission of the famous painting. Where 12 very talented local community groups took part in recreating the iconic ‘Wivenhoe Park’ landscape.
The exhibition will be at Wivenhoe House Hotel and will be taking you back through the history of Wivenhoe House and the beautiful parkland’s that surround the hotel, that were captured by John Constable 200 years ago.
Kate Bright was commissioned to also recreate Constables interpretation of ‘Wivenhoe Park’ and her painting will be unveiled at the exhibition. Read more about the artist commissioned to recreate the landscape here.
The exhibition is one not to be missed putting a modern spin on the classic image, and bringing in local talent.
