Fire and Ice: comparing two masterpieces by Turner and Constable

Venue: Tate Britain, Millbank, London SW1P 4RG  Date: Monday 16th July 2018

Time:  10.30am for refreshments and 11.00am – 12.15pm tour

Join Tate’s audio describers for a description of two great masterpieces of 1830: John Constable’s Salisbury Cathedral from the Meadows, and JMW Turner’s Caligula’s Palace. This is the first time that these two paintings have hung alongside each other since they were first ever displayed at the Royal Academy in 1830.

Tate’s Framing department has just reframed the Constable painting and they have given us a sample of the exact frame and materials they used. Marcus will facilitate handling of these objects in order to give an understanding of how Tate has authentically recreated a frame from the 1830’s, the exact date period of this painting.

Free, no booking required. Please meet in the Manton Studio from 10.30 for refreshments.

Chairs and hearing support equipment will be provided

Have a great month and we hope to see you at one of our regular Audio Description events which always occur on the third Monday of each month at 11.00am at Tate Britain
