Fall in love all over again with three giants of British landscape painting.

The founding of the Royal Academy in the mid-18th century coincided with the flowering of British landscape painting. Over the next 100 years Constable, Gainsborough and JMW Turner - all academicians - became the pillars of a national movement, the first with his bold, vigorous brushwork, the second with his endless invention and evenescent colours, and the third as the incomparable master of light and colour.

This show presents their work alongside that of their contemporaries Richard Wilson, Michael Angelo Rooker and Paul Sandby, and the 17th-century masters they would have used as models: Claude, Poussin, Gaspard Dughet and Salvator Rosa.
