    About

    In October 1821 Constable wrote to his friend Archdeacon Fisher: "I have not been Idle and have made more particular and general study than I have ever done in one summer ... I have done a good deal of skying - I am determined to conquer all difficulties and that most arduous one among the rest . . . That landscape painter who does not make his skies a very material part of his composition - neglects to avail himself of one of his greatest aids ... It will be difficult to name a class of Landscape, in which the sky is not the key note, the standard of Scale, and the chief organ of sentiment". This watercolour (although unlike other examples it is not inscribed with a date or details of weather conditions) came from a sketchbook watermarked 1819 but used by Constable in 1821 and 1823; comparison with other similar studies suggests that this was made in 1821 in Hampstead, where the family had taken a house for the summer. Over summary pencilled underdrawing, Constable has rapidly swept on wet washes of colour, using the white paper to suggest delicate areas of cloud.
