Special Events


Caspar David, John and I: Richard Caston on the trail of the Romantic Masters

In his exhibition of paintings and workbooks, Richard Caston pays homage to two giants of the 19th century Romantic Revolution – Caspar David Friedrich and John Constable. The work includes paintings of trees, prehistoric mounds, standing stones, skies, and church architecture, all subjects close to the heart of the Romantic artists. The exhibition evokes a sense of the sublime in nature and highlights its internal powers and mysteries.


During the summer of 2017, Caston travelled to the Baltic island of Rügen and to “Constable Country” in the east of England to discover the special places that inspired and defined each artist.


The exhibition of paintings and workbooks remains on display in the library from November 2nd - December 15th, 2017.
