But he was obdurately opposed to this and persuaded his family he should become an artist instead. In the same determined spirit, he wooed Maria Bicknell in the teeth of opposition from her formidable grandfather, and persisted in painting landscapes at a time when history paintings and portraits were the fashion." "Constable's reputation is once again rising, as exemplified by the exhibition of his 'six-footers' at Tate Britain and the show in Paris - Le Choix de Lucian Freud - in which the nation's greatest living painter named Constable as the greatest English painter of the past." "This new book explores his life and work, and highlights the dramatic tension between the two."--Jacket." ;
