Wivenhoe Park, Essex, Constable (ASL)

The big sky, lush green groves, and languidly grazing cows immediately evoke the calm tranquility of a pastoral landscape. Constable was born and raised in Suffolk, a county near Essex northeast of London, where he developed an attachment to the rural countryside. The owner of Wivenhoe Park, who was also a close friend of the artist’s father, commissioned this painting.
