Stanley Plumly - Elegy Landscapes: Constable and Turner and the Intimate Sublime

Upcoming Event
Tuesday, August 21, 2018 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

An award-winning poet, Plumly has turned to prose in recent years with his insightful Posthumous Keats and The Immortal Evening. His new book continues his exploration of the Romantic era, focusing on the lives and work of John Constable (1776-1837) and J.M.W. Turner (1775-1851). Considered Britain’s premier landscape painters, the men were very different in temperament, personal experience, and artistic approach. As Plumly fruitfully explores these differences, particularly as they illuminate notions of the sublime, he gives us a profound look at the interaction between life, art, and the terrible beauty of the natural world.
