Skyscape: Dürer, Rembrandt, Palmer, Ruskin, Nash
Inspired by Constable's famous statement that 'It will be difficult to name a class of landscape in which the sky is not the key note, the standard scale and the chief organ of sentiment' this exhibition focuses on aerial rather than terrestrial landscapes in art, and celebrates five hundred years of artists' fascination with the sky.
