In 1831, John Constable finished a painting of the Salisbury Cathedral—a stunning Gothic edifice in Southern England. The artist had a strong emotional connection to the painting, which was completed a year after his wife’s death, as well as the town where it was created. Salisbury Cathedral from the Meadows, which belongs to Tate Britain, is embarking on a five-year tour that will kick off at the Salisbury Museum. From there, it will make stops in Wales, Scotland and East Anglia.
