  • John Constable (1776-1837) is best known for his idyllic paintings of the English countryside. Yet he was also a brilliant innovator who brought a new vivacity to the observation of nature. He practiced oil painting in the open air, capturing in particular the “effervescent” effects of atmospherics – as can be seen, for example, in his wonderful studies of clouds
  • His art became a benchmark for naturalist painters throughout Europe and America in the 19th century, and he continues to be one of the most popular and influential artists today
  • This book draws extensively on the artist’s own correspondence to provide a fresh understanding of his artistic aims and achievements and reassesses his role in the development of modern art
