Hampstead Heath with a Rainbow Painting by John Constable

Hampstead Heath with a Rainbow was painted by John Constable in 1836. This is Constable’s last treatment of one of his favourite Hampstead subjects.

Rainbows are often included in Constable’s late work, either for symbolic reasons or for their associated physical properties. He admired the way Rubens, when painting a rainbow, could combine ‘dewy light and freshness, the departing shower, with the exhilaration of the returning sun’.

The Glebe Farm Painting by John Constable

The Glebe Farm was painted by John Constable in 1830. The cottage nestling in woodland was a stock motif in early nineteenth century art, appearing even in the work of an artist as technically daring as Constable. Indeed, the relatively conventional character of this painting suggests that the painter may have had the marketplace in mind. buy famous reproduction paintings online

However, this picture has an additional, personal significance. The image originated with an oil sketch of the rectory of Langham, where Constable’s old friend and supporter, Dr Fisher, had once lived. Fisher’s death in 1825 prompted Constable to return to the sketch and produce a number of oils of the scene. This painting can be reproduced on canvas by Daydaypaint.com.

The Church Porch East Bergholt Painting by John Constable

The Church Porch, East Bergholt was painted by John Constable in 1810. This view of the church in Constable’s native village of East Bergholt was one of the first works he exhibited.

Malvern Hall Warwickshire Painting by John Constable

Malvern Hall, Warwickshire was painted by John Constable in 1809.

The sun is sinking below the trees to the left, which cast long shadows across the lawn at the back of the house. Above them hovers a flight of rooks. Many years later Constable wrote that the cawing of a rook was a ‘voice which instantaneously placed my youth before me’. This painting can be reproduced on canvas by Daydaypaint.com.
