Book DescriptionRay Lambert's exhaustive study of John Constable's landscapes and relevant writings reveal Constable's high level of engagement with ideas on art and aesthetics and the decisive consequences for his style of painting. Constable's texts clearly predict his views. They also give an indication of the artist's knowledge of scientific, poetic, and aesthetic ideas that were relevant to the creation of a serious landscape art as well as a theory of landscape.
