Constable: A Country Rebel

Another good one from BBC by Alastair Sooke. I've seen quite a few of art documentaries by him. I like him a lot. 

Although I always liked his landscape paintings, I agree that Constable and 'revolutionary' usually didn't used to go together in  my mind. 
This film did a great job of convincing us that he was very unique at that time. 
I certainly have a new appreciation of his works and life. 

"Painting is a science and should be pursued
 as an inquiry into the laws of nature. 
Why, then, may not a landscape be considered 
as a branch of natural philosophy, 
of which pictures are but experiments?"
