Art and Nature Series: John Constable

“Nature is the fountain’s head, the source from whence all originality must spring”

There is no one able to reproduce the heat of the mid-day sun, sound of a summer breeze, or the cool of the shade cast across a panoramic view than John Constable. ‘Hampstead Heath, with the House Called ‘The Salt Box’ (1819-20) is one of many paintings of the numerous studies of the Hampstead Heath views. This is a view Constable would wake up to when he rented Albion Cottage in 1819.
