England through Constable's eyes

Posted by Tory Historian Friday, June 11, 2010 , ,

Whatever John Constable's political views might have been his vision of the country not only chimes in with conservative (small c) attitudes but is the one that is seen as reality by many outsiders. Constable's England is the England that is known to those who do not know the country. And yet it is not entirely wrong either as a visit to Suffolk or a view down the Thames or a walk in Hampstead Heath can prove. Tory Historian who loves Constable's paintings and drawings is celebrating the great man's birthday today. He was born on June 11, 1776.
