Skyscape Exhibition
  • Worcester City Art Gallery and Museum
    Foregate Street
    WR1 1DT
  • Saturday 30th January - Until Saturday 1st May
Explore the sky and it’s representations in art: a symbol of the divine, a scientific subject, or a vehicle for emotional expression. Skyscape features works by Albrecht Durer, Rembrandt, Samuel Palmer, John Ruskin, Paul Nash and many others.

Showcasing over thirty objects on loan from the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford, Skyscape celebrates five hundred years of artists’ fascination with the sky. Inspired by Constable’s famous statement that ‘It will be difficult to name a class of landscape in which the sky is not the key note, the standard of scale and the chief organ of sentiment’, Skyscape focuses on aerial rather than terrestrial landscapes in art.
