The Constable and Salisbury exhibition currently being held at the Salisbury and South Wiltshire Museum is quite a coup for the county. John Constable (1776-1837) visited Salisbury seven times, with more sketches and paintings arising than from anywhere beyond the countryside he had known since childhood. A host of the artist’s Wiltshire and Dorset paintings are on show in this exhibition, for which an entrance time needs to be booked. Both Constable’s and Turner’s paintings of Stonehenge are on display, although not side by side.

Following this lead perhaps English Heritage could bring them together for the opening of the new visitor centre?
