Talk: Constable by Martin Gayford

| The Wallace Collection

During the seven years between John Constable’s declaration of love for Maria Bicknell in 1809 and their wedding in 1816 the romance was strongly opposed by her family. But despite this discouragement, neither Constable nor Maria gave up hope that they would eventually marry, and he steadily grew towards greatness as a landscape painter.
