Constable's 'six-footers' include some of his most famous paintings:
The White Horse (1819), The Haywain (1821), The Leaping Horse (1925)
and Salisbury Cathedral from the Meadows (1831). Their compositions
were derived from small pencil and oil studies and for each
Constable painted a full-size sketch. These sketches are
extraordinary creations for the early 19th century and were unseen
by all but his closest friends during his lifetime.

Based on extensive technical research for a detailed catalogue essay
for the 'Constable's Great Landscapes' exhibition, formerly at Tate
Britain, now in Washington DC and moving to California in February,
2007 this lecture discusses Constable's diverse painting methods and
brings to life his dynamic personality and artistic temperament,
revealing a 'Jackson Pollock of the 1830s'. It is illustrated with
highly detailed, previously unseen, colour slides taken during
studio examinations of the paintings.
