Tate Papers no.33 2020

This issue offers fresh insights into the work of John Constable, exploring his depiction of urban scenes and gothic cathedrals, his reception and legacy in France, his relationship with fellow artist J.M.W. Turner and the publication of his mezzotint portfolio English Landscape Scenery. Also discussed are Constable’s knowledge of contemporary perspective theories and the re-framing of his painting Salisbury Cathedral from the Meadows by conservators. Alongside this grouping sit papers on Renato Guttuso, Jessa Fairbrother, Alan Uglow and David Bomberg, and on the conservation of artworks by Eva Hesse and Gary Hume. The issue also features an editorial that addresses the work currently being undertaken by the Tate Papers editorial team to implement anti-racist and inclusive practices at the journal.
