MASTERPIECES by Turner, Constable and Rembrandt are to be exhibited together in an exhibition in Worcester in the new year.

The Skyscape exhibition at Worcester City Art Gallery & Museum explores how some of Europe’s most famous artists have captured the sky in their paintings.

Running from January 29 to March 26, Skyscape includes masterpieces by JMW Turner, Constable, Rembrandt, Dürer, John Ruskin and Paul Nash, alongside more than 30 major artworks from the Ashmolean Museum, University of Oxford.

Skyscape celebrates 500 years of artists’ fascination with the sky. The exhibition tells the story of the important role that they sky has played in art, how depictions have changed through time, and the emotions the sky can evoke.

Museums Worcestershire senior curator Deborah Fox said: “It is our great pleasure to present works of such international calibre. This is an opportunity for visitors to see the work of well-known artists in a new fashion: much is made of landscape and seascape within European art, but little is said of the sky.

“This exhibition sheds new light on a fascinating subject.

“Visitors are invited to escape the winter cold and enjoy beautiful blue skies and majestic sunsets.”

The exhibition, which is free to visitors, has been organised by the Ashmolean Museum, University of Oxford.
