Constable and Turner: British Landscapes of the Early 1800s

features two landscape painters who were influential champions of romanticism, an artistic movement of the late 1700s to mid-1800s that emphasized an emotional response to nature. Turner often infused his dramatic seascapes and landscapes with literary or historical allusions and blended his oil paints in fluid layers of translucent color, called glazes. Constable, preferred more straightforward depictions of placid rural scenery in thick, opaque oils. (National Gallery of Art)
