John Constable

British Romanticism Painter

Meant to take over the family businesses, Constable instead turned to art. Art remained most ungrateful for his sacrifice throughout his lifetime, and he went undervalued (save by French painters) until the early 20th century - despite every effort and stylistic change. Moody by nature, this and his wife's early death saw him paint increasingly 'stormy' outdoor scenes. Best remembered for his landscapes, Constable supported his family with steady income from fine, if lesser-known, portraiture.

Important Works:
The White Horse, 1819
The Haywain, 1821
Rainstorm off the Coast at Brighton, ca. 1824-28
The Leaping Horse, 1825
The Glebe Farm, ca. 1830

Birth: June 11, 1776, East Bergholt, Suffolk, England
Death: March 31, 1837, Hampstead, England
