«A Picture of Britain» in Tate Gallery

James Dixon Innes. Arenig, North Wales, 1913

An exhibition dedicated to the image of British landscape in art is opened in Tate Gallery in London through September 4. «A Picture of Britain» explores how British landscape has inspired artists for three hundred years. It also examines how artists have influenced and changed the way people look at and think about landscape.

The exhibition takes visitors on a six-part journey across the country, from the Scottish Highlands to the South Downs. Each section illustrates the British countryside through the eyes of renowned artists such as John Constable, William Turner, Laurence Stephen Lowry, Paul Nash and Richard Long. Focusing on a wide range of artistic responses to landscape, «A Picture of Britain» also meditates upon travel, nationhood, industrialization and on rural way of life.
