PAUL D. SCHWEIZER - John Constable and the Anglican Church Establishment
Constable's Tory sympathies are discussed against the background of the English Reform Movement, which posed no genuine threat to the Anglican Church establishment, but which caused Constable and his close friend Archdeacon John Fisher considerable concern. Constable's 1831 painting, Salisbury Cathedral from the Meadows (private collection), is cited as an attempt by Constable to paint a symbolic statement about the supposed plight of the Anglican Church.
