RE: GREAT MASTERS OF PAINTING - JOHN CONSTABLE

Miguel,

What a beautiful thing to start my day, eye to eye to such an incredible master like John Constable.

I am not lover of drama, except on his paintings.

And watercolor is my preferred medium and I simply I can't enjoy it enough.
Thanks my jewel friend :).

Dear Branka, this work was blasted as "poorly defined" by one of the critics of 'The Examiner' after John Constable presented it to the Royal Academy in 1813. However, it seems to me beautiful and very placid in spirit and actually is one of my favorites.

Hugs,

Miguel

Here is a no less placid scene on a river bank - but one that most certainly is more impressive. No wonder it has been seen as anticipating Impressionism with its phenomenal light effects all over the painting.

Three highly contrasting works by
Constable, covering a long time-span

John Constable - Malvern Hall (oil on canvas, 1809)

John Constable - Harwich Lighthouse (oil on canvas, c.1820)

John Constable - Chain Pier, Brighton (oil on canvas, 1827)

Two of Constable's most recognized works, the two of them relatively early and certainly exquisite masterpieces.

John Constable - The Stour Valley with the church of Dedham
(oil on canvas, 1814)

John Constable - The White Horse (oil on canvas, 1819)
