John Constable was an English Romantic painter. Born in Suffolk in 1776, he is known principally for his landscape paintings of Dedham Vale, the area surrounding his home — now known today as "Constable Country" — which he invested  with  an intensity of affection. "I should paint my own places best",
he wrote, "painting is but another word for feeling"

Although his paintings are now among the most
popular and valuable in British art, Constable was
never financially successful.

until he was  elected to the Royal Academy at the age
of 52.

works  than in his native England and inspired the
