It may be winter outside, but it’s a lovely summer day in John Constable’s 19th-century painting “Wivenhoe Park, Essex.” In this video from the Children’s Video Tour, kids can learn more about the artist’s love of the English countryside, where he grew up. Constable often worked outdoors, sketching and painting directly from nature. Imagine if Constable chose to paint this scene on a clear, cloudless day. How might the painting look different? On view in the West Building, Main Floor, Gallery 57. http://www.nga.gov/fcgi-bin/tinfo_f?object=1147 ----- Find the Children's Video Tour at http://www.nga.gov/education/timetravel/index.shtm
