Constable Prints represent a great choice for those who want to add the best British art to their homes. John Constable marked the rise of landscape painting which previously had been undervalued and wasn't seen the way it is today, either by art buyers or academics. Below is a link through to a gallery of his best works, as well as a link directly to our recommended one, and Constable's most popular - The Haywain. You can see the Haywain Constable print here.
John Constable was a truly passionate artist who stuck rigidly to his belief that landscape painting was what art was all about, even at a time when others looked snobbishly towards it as not as impressive as portraits and religious depictions. His achievements helped change tradition and it was his English based works from the Southern counties that helped bring about this development which later inspired the rise of the French impressionists.
Constable's legacy is intertwined with that of William Turner, sometimes referred to as JMW Turner, as both spearheaded the prominence of British art around that time when previously art from this region had not produced a particularly high number of world-inspiring artists. They still sit amongst the major painters to have ever comes from these shores and their legacies remain as strong as ever.
Constable's works all retain huge value whenever they make ocassional appearances at auction halls and the best are also on show at the most prestigious galleries of London plus other areas of England and the United States.
As a groundbreaking painter it is still interesting to note the painters that inspired this revolutionary, counting Thomas Gainsborough, Annibale Carracci, Claude Lorrain, Peter Paul Rubens and Jacob van Ruisdael as the leading of these figures. Constable achieved enough acceptance to gain exposure at the Royal Academy, which was a crucial factor for any artist of that time in achieving acceptance.
