Even though I do not agree with Collin when he talks about Turner; I believe Constable’s work was much more “British-like,” at that time, than Tuner’s, perhaps that was the reason it took him so long to get accepted into the academy; he was giving them what they already have seen, just in an “unfinished” version. – (and when I say that I do not want to diminish his work in any way, just trying to describe what may have been the academy’s view on it) – But I do enjoy many of the points Mr.Wiggins brings up in the video, it helped me to understand and appreciate Constable’s artwork even more. Hope you guys enjoy it as well!
