04-07-2012 : A CONSTABLE PAINTING SELLS FOR RECORD BREAKING AMOUNT

A painting by the English romantic painter John Constable sold for over 22 million pounds at Christies in London, a world record price at auction for this artist.

The Lock was completed by Constable in 1824 and is the fifth in a celebrated series of six large scale paintings of the Stour Valley.

Among the series are several of the artists most renowned works, including The White Horse and The Hay Wain.

If you enjoy the arts then believe it or not many can be found beside our canals and waterways.

If you book a Canal Boat Holiday from Alvechurch Marina you can cruise the Coventry Canal and follow the amazing art trail, Coventry has a five and a half mile long outdoor art gallery which runs alongside the canal.

Sixth form students from King Edwards College, Hansworth have joined forces with British Waterways and HSBC to brighten up the Birmingham and Fazeley Canal in central Birmingham.

A lock side wall has been transformed by the students with a mural that they have designed and painted onto the unusual canvas.

There are a host of art galleries to visit in Britain and a Canal Boat Holiday gives you and your family an opportunity to visit them.

Many of them have free entry which is brilliant if you are on a budget.

London is home to many galleries including The Tate Modern and Tate Britain, Saatchi Gallery and The Hayward.

Visit The National Gallery and view The Hay Wain by John Constable on a Canal Boat Holiday booked from Aldermaston.
