Take a tour of the British countryside, "from the Scottish Highlands to the South Downs," via this web exhibition from the Tate Online. A Picture of Britain looks at the ways in which the British landscape has inspired artists like John Constable, JMW Turner, LS Lowry, Paul Nash and Richard Long. The Web exhibition features an interactive map, a quiz for you to test your knowledge of various regions, including the Highlands and Glens, the Romantic North, and the Mystical West. Using the map, plot landmarks and artistic locations to see the places that have inspired generations of British artists, such as Tintern Abbey, Tyne River, and Lands End. There is also an Art On Demand section where visitors can order prints of their favorite images from the show.
