For most of his life, John Constable lived as an outsider, cut off from patronage and the approval of his colleagues, not selling a single picture to a stranger until he was 38 years old, and waiting 27 years for full membership in the Royal Academy.
Fortunately, the world now recognizes his revolutionary genius. And what better day to celebrate that than today, Constable’s 236th birthday?
Hampstead Heath is pictured here, one of many Constables in our collection.
