Join V&A Guide Tony Mollett to explore the lives and work of two great artists, JM Turner and John Constable. Born one year apart, the first, a self-made success born above a barber’s shop in Covent Garden, who travelled throughout Britain and Europe, and the latter, a son of a Suffolk landowner who never felt the need to leave England in his pursuit of inspiration. Who was more radical, who was more successful, and who had the greatest influence on Modern art?
