Ronald Parkinson provides a fascinating view of how some of Constables major masterpieces were achieved: from the smallest pencil sketch, through the more elaborate pen and ink, wash or water-colour study to one of the famous oil sketches, and eventually to the finished painting as it would have hung on the wall of the Royal Academy nearly 200 years ago. Looking in detail at both his life and his work, John Constable: The Man and his Art ranges from his early years in the Suffolk countryside, whose scenes are now so familiar to us from his paintings, through his career at the Royal Academy and his relationship with fellow artist Turner, to his last years in Hampstead.

The text draws on Constables own letters and on accounts of his life by friends and contemporaries. It is illustrated throughout in colour with key paintings, drawings and many details which reveal Constables deep understanding of nature and above all his mastery of technique.
