Reality and Vision: Constable's Wivenhoe Park

It was one of his last pictures to be painted on an easel out in nature rather than back in the studio - and it helped pay for his wedding to Maria Bicknell.

Now the home of the University of Essex's Colchester Campus, Constable’s painting of Wivenhoe Park (1816) has many stories to tell. Join Jess Twyman, Arts & Gallery Director at Art Exchange as she takes you on a walk through the painting.
