Book Description

This book has been professionally designed and edited by The Bookmill with interactive links to new colour illustrations. It is a critical account of the work of John Constable by one time director of the National Gallery Sir Charles Holmes.
A landscape painter himself he gives an illuminating account of the development of Constables art. Only lightly touching on the domestic side of his life, he talks in great detail about the paintings,Constables vision of painting and his place in the development of landscape painting.
His own experience as a working painter and his passion for art give him the sort of insight that is so often missing in academic art historians.
These days Constable tends to be overlooked in favour of Turner but Holmes puts a strong case for Constable being the true genius of European Landscape painting.
Though this book was written in 1901 it still has much relevance today for anyone interested in painting. .
