This exciting book presents a unique insight into the working process of famed English artist John Constable (1776-1837) through the V&A’s unparalleled collection. It presents afresh two of the V&A’s most beloved works, the vibrant full-size oil sketches for The Hay Wain and The Leaping Horse, newly photographed since their revelatory cleaning. Both reveal their original colors and tonalities for the first time in living memory, and are presented with a spectacular selection of the artist’s small oil sketches, supplemented by an exquisite series of his watercolors and drawings.
