John Constable (1776-1837) exerted a major influence upon the development of landscape painting and Realism in the nineteenth century, while his depictions of the English countryside have become an enduring part of our collective imagination, ensuring his fame both at home and abroad. Among the first artists to consistently exploit the possibilities of painting in the open air, Constable had a passion for the natural world around him, capturing its beauty in oil paintings of unprecedented brilliance---their sparkling vigour in contrast to his nostalgic sense of the rural scene and its inhabitants. Constable's groundbreaking vision exploited contemporary advances in the natural sciences to achieve striking technical innovations, even as it celebrated a local world that was fast disappearing in the face of industrialization and modernity. Jonathan Clarkson's accessible yet inquiring appraisal of Constable's art presents incisive commentary on all his celebrated masterpieces, such as The Hay Wain and The Leaping Horse, alongside a rich selection of lesser known drawings, studies, portraits and oil sketches. Constable's life, work and theories emerge with a fresh clarity in this comprehensive new study
John Constable by William Vaughan( Book )

3 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 325 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"John Constable (1776-1837) is best known for his idyllic pictures 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 with unprecedented dedication, 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 nineteenth century, playing a part in the development of Impressionism in France." "This book draws extensively on the artist's own correspondence to provide a new understanding of his artistic aims and achievements, and reassesses his role in the development of modern art."--Jacket
John Constable and the theory of landscape painting by Ray Lambert( Book )

3 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 301 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this study, Ray Lambert provides a close study of Constable's landscapes and his writings about them. Linking the artist's theories with those of Joshua Reynolds, Lambert demonstrates that Constable was an intellectual painter whose works are not a revolutionary break with the past. Moreover, his theory and practice place him within the great tradition of landscape painting in the West."--Jacket
