John Constable (1776–1837, England)

Landscapes 1

Constable was a Romantic painter, and along with Turner is considered the finest of all Englishlandscape painters. Known principally for his depictions of Dedham Vale, the area surrounding his home, which he invested with an intensity of affection. “I should paint my own places best”, he wrote to his friend John Fisher in 1821, “painting is but another word for feeling”.
