Huntington Library Constable Exhibit
The Huntington Library has a showing of John Constable works through April. All of his "6 Footers" are there -- together for the first time. I saw them last week. Awesome, though if you want to enjoy them thoroughly leave the little kids at home. I plan to go back before they leave. Constable's works were some of my favorite when I'd only seen them in books. Viewing them up close and personal has not diminished them. He is a fine example of 19th century Romanticism.
