March 31, 1837

John Constable (11 June 1776 - 31 March 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.

He exhibited from 1802 at the Royal Academy in London, and later at the Paris Salon. He influenced the Barbizon School and the French Romantic movement. Like Thomas Gainsborough, Constable was influenced by Dutch artists such as Jacob van Ruisdael.

Studio materials After he died unexpectedly in 1837, the contents of Constable's studio included four palettes, a wooden sketching box with brushes, chalk holder, palette knife and pigments in glass phials. There were also prepared canvases, easels and frames, and a wooden box full of bottles with colours.

Constable Country. Dedham Vale has barely changed since John Constable captured the pastoral landscape with scudding clouds in his romantic 19th-century paintings. The area straddles the Essex and Suffolk borders and today you can visit Flatford Mill with Willy Lott's House, famously featured in 'The Hay Wain'.

In 1799 Constable was introduced to Joseph Farington, RA, and entered the Royal Academy Schools. He visited Staffordshire and Derbyshire in 1801. He first exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1802. He received a commission in 1805 to paint an altarpiece for the church at Brantham.

How did John Constable portray landscapes in his paintings? He wanted to paint as the actual eye sees them. He delighted in trying to capture the light and warmth of sunlight, coolness of shadows, and motion of the clouds and rain. He began as a watercolor painter and later he turned to landscapes in oils.
