Watch Colin Wiggins give an in-depth talk on John Constable's 'The Hay Wain', one of the best known paintings in the history of British art. Find out how radical Constable's approach was at the time of creating this extraordinary work, and how he would go on to influence the course of modern art, from Delacroix's painting technique, to the landscapes of the Impressionists, like Claude Monet and Camille Pissarro.

My homage to a little valley in Co. Wicklow, Ireland. If you've never been to Ireland, then you've probably never heard of it - if you have been to Ireland, then you probably remember it with warm and fuzzy feelings in your heart. This video shows why I adore this beautiful place and treasure my memories of it. ***All artworks shown in this video are reproduced for educational purposes only*** The main artifacts from the Irish Dark Ages can be seen in the National Museum of Ireland, Kildare Street, Dublin. The Book of Kells can be seen in Trinity College Library, Dublin. Many of the artifacts shown in this video are actually full-sized, accurate replicas created in the 19th century, on display in the Ulster Museum, Belfast, Northern Ireland. This is because the National Museum in Dublin forbids photography, and the Ulster Museum allows photography.
Music by Dennis Hart (moondance) and Francis Goya (song song blue). The Dales became very famous because of the James Herriot books and TV-series. Most TV-locations were in villages in the Dales (e.g. Reeth and Langthwaite). Million of books are sold and the TV-series were shown in many countries. Surely a destination for one of your next holidays, but I can not guarantee dry weather.
Between July 2006 and April 2013, I lived 45 minutes drive from the small area of East Anglia in England that inspired most of John Constable's paintings. I drove over to Constable Country as often as I could, and it became a place I adore. This video takes you on a tour of this tiny patch of unspoiled England, comparing Constable's paintings with how the actual landscape looks today.
