This person is associated with: Romanticism

John Constable (June 11, 1776 – March 31, 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. His most famous paintings include "Dedham Vale" of 1802, "The Flatford Mill" of 1817, "The Hay Wain" of 1821. Although his paintings are now among the most popular and valuable in British art, he was never financially successful and did not become a member of the establishment until he was elected to the Royal Academy at the age of 52. He sold more paintings in France than in his native England. The Tate Britain holds many of his works and in the United States the Yale Center for British Art has an important collection.
