    Abstract

    A re-examination of John Constable’s landscape paintings in light of modern landscape heritage and management ideas, inspired by new perspectives on art history, landscape management and ecology. The second section addresses this conflict between optical verisimilitude and artistic expression by analysing the iconography of Constable’s paintings to gauge how far they are accurate representations, and introduces the second strand of the dissertation: how far the Stour landscapes are managed to appear like Constable’s paintings.
