Constable Sketch

Today the V&A Museum in London put on display this previously unknown Oil Sketch (early 1820s) by John Constable. It was discovered under the lining canvas of his painting Branch Hill Pond, Hampstead, and is thought to be a sketch of Hampstead Heath. The discovery was made while V&A staff prepared paintings for a major exhibition next year: Constable: The Making of a Master, which will also include landscapes by old masters such as Jacob van Ruisdael and Claude Lorrain (CLICK).
