Salisbury Cathedral from the Meadows

360_Tate_Constable_Salisbury_1536This rather awesome 1831 masterpiece by Constable ‘Salisbury Cathedral from the Meadows’ has been snapped up by the Tate for £23.1m, it has been on loan at The National Gallery for 30 years and was at risk of being sold abroad.

“It’s one of the quintessential images of 19th century British art and it’s worth every penny,” Tate Britain’s Director Nicholas Serota told the BBC. Then it will be going off on tour around the UK….so look out for it!
