These Idyllic Paintings Will Charm Your Heart

 John Constable (11 June 1776 - 31 March 1837) was a famous English Romantic painter known for his gorgeous landscapes. Most of his works were of the English countryside, particularly those representing the Suffolk region where he was born and lived. In fact, he sketched his native valley of River Stour so extensively that the area later came to be known as Constable County.
Constable's works are popular even today. Interestingly, historians say that they weren’t warmly received during his lifetime. Still, Constable later went on to become a major figure in English landscape painting.

Born in East Bergholt, Suffolk, Constable was largely self-taught and developed his craft slowly. He was a student at the Royal Academy in 1800 and exhibited from 1802 at the Royal Academy in London. Constable’s style was typical – there's usually a freshness of light and color in most of his works.
Apart from showing the idyllic countryside in his paintings, he also displayed scenes of ordinary daily life. The realism and vitality of his works make them stand out.
“Painting is but another word for feeling,” wrote John Constable once. And once you take a look at the works by the painter we have featured here, you will know what he meant. These beautiful artworks, whether of a lone windmill, a quaint cottage, or just a dog watching a rat in the water all evoke plenty of feelings. We’re sure you’ll love these delightful paintings.
