Skyscape: The limitless art of the sky at River & Rowing Museum

Skyscape: The limitless art of the sky at River & Rowing Museum

The sky is the source of light in nature – and governs everything.’ – John Constable Celebrating artists’ fascination with the sky, this exciting new exhibition invites you to escape into aerial landscapes just like the artists who painted them. Organised by The Ashmolean Museum, it features the masterpieces of some of history’s most notable artists including Rembrandt, Dürer, Turner, Palmer and Nash. Inspired by Constable’s famous statement of 1821 that ‘It will be difficult to name a class of landscape in which the sky is not the key note, the standard of scale’, Skyscape is an exciting opportunity to view the popular art of landscape from a new perspective. These artists’ depictions of the sky include a wide variety of media encompassing engraving, etching, ceramic, mezzotint, watercolour, graphic sketches, oil, and heliogravure. This exhibition has been organised by The Ashmolean Museum, University of Oxford.
