Closer Look: Constable's "White Horse"

September 5, 2023

In this episode of Closer Look, Kennedy Winslow, Ayesha Bulchandani Education Intern, explores John Constable’s “White Horse,” on display on the fourth floor of Frick Madison. Kennedy unpacks this faithful rendition of the English countryside, a love letter to the land in which the artist grew up and lived most of his life. This is the second episode in a series of three, featuring the Education Department’s 2023 summer interns each taking an in-depth look at one object in our collection.
