Now the home of the University of Essex’s Colchester Campus, Constable’s painting of Wivenhoe Park (1816) has many stories to tell. ‘Wivenhoe Park’ was one of Constable’s last pictures to be painted on an easel out in nature rather than back in the studio – and it helped pay for his wedding to Maria Bicknell.

Join Jess as she takes you on a virtual walk through the painting!
