John Constable (1776 –1837) was an English Romantic painter. Born in Suffolk, he is known principally for his landscape paintings of Dedham Vale, the area surrounding his home—now known as “Constable Country”—which he invested with an intensity of affection.

The first stage of Constable’s work was usually done outdoors, in a sketchbook. These sketchbooks were his storehouse of images, and he often made a sketch for its own sake, with no finished painting in mind. He also painted many full-scale preliminary oil sketches of his landscapes which were revolutionary at the time. His sketches demonstrated that landscape painting could be taken in a totally new direction.

Constable also completed numerous observational studies of landscapes and clouds, determined to become more scientific in his recording of atmospheric conditions. He believed that the sky was “the key note, the standard of scale, and the chief organ of sentiment” in a landscape painting.

Constable’s art inspired not only contemporaries like Géricault and Delacroix, but the Barbizon School, and the French impressionists of the late nineteenth century.
