Turner and Constable: The Inhabited Landscape

Opens Saturday, December 15
The works of Joseph Mallord William Turner (English, 1775–1851) and John Constable (English, 1776–1837), two of the most important landscape artists of nineteenth-century Britain, are considered in a new light in Turner and Constable: The Inhabited Landscape. The exhibition, which explores the significance of human figures and the built environment in the landscape, features more than fifty paintings, drawings and watercolors, prints, and books, primarily drawn from the Clark’s Manton Collection of British Art but also from the Yale Center for British Art and the Chapin Library at Williams College.

Extreme Nature!

Opens November 10
Extreme Nature! explores how nature’s extremes—remote, fantastical, and unpredictable—permeated artistic imagery throughout the nineteenth century. Featuring more than thirty-five prints, drawings, and photographs, this exhibition reveals how artists sought to mitigate nature’s dangers, transforming the hazardous and remote into awe-inspiring portrayals of natural phenomena.
