There's still time to see Contable's 'Salisbury Cathedral' at Christchurch mansion. You won't be dissapointed!

If you havent already been to see Constables great 1831 masterpiece Salisbury Cathedral from the Meadows at Christchurch Mansion, theres even more reason to go now.

 

A new exhibition has just opened featuring the bicentenary of two of Constables favourite works: Golding Constables Kitchen Garden and Flower Garden. They are small, intimate paintings which Constable never sold. They were found in his studio after he died which shows he carried a corner of Suffolk in his heart all his life.

 

Ipswich has the largest collection of Constables outside London and we are very lucky that these two paintings have a permanent home in here. As if that wasnt enough, they have been supplemented by loans of other Constable works from the Tate, the V&A and the Fitzwilliam.

 

This is getting Ipswich noticed on the national stage and bringing more visitors to our town. More than 10,000 people have been to see the previous Constable exhibition, nearly three and half times more than visited the Mansion in the same period last year.

 

Theres still time to see Salisbury Cathedral - it stays in Ipswich until January when it goes off on its travels around the country.

Do try and get to see it, you wont be disappointed.

 

The exhibition, just like the Museum and Mansion, is free of charge.
