Format: Paperback
John Constable is arguably one of the finest painters in the history of British art. John Constable's Skies: A Fusion Of Art And Science is an impressive compilation of his sky and weather paintings, against which John Thornes (Reader in Applied Meteorology and Director of the Atmospheric Impacts Research Group within the School of Geography and Environmental Sciences at the University of Birmingham) provides an extensive and informative meteorological framework for reading "the skies of landscape art". Thornes analyses Constable's meteorological understanding and enhances our understanding and appreciation for what Constable was able to achieve with his art. John Constable's Skies is essential reading for all John Constable enthusiasts, and an important contribution to study of British art history.

John Constable's art provides detailed infomation about the skies in and around Suffolk and the other counties he explored in his early years as a landscape painter in early 18th Century England. His sketches and notes record the weather,time of day, place and other data to describe each scene he would later paint in his studio in London or at home near Debham. This book is a wonderful collection of his best sketches, paintings, and works of other contemporaries of Constable to round out a very readable account of his observations. Although a bit pricey, a great book none the same.
