Victoria and Albert Museum

The world’s greatest museum of art and design

Constable was born in 1776 at East Bergholt. He began his professional career as a student at the Royal Academy Schools. Following the fashion for painting mountainous, Romantic scenery, he spent some time in Derbyshire and the Lake District, but it was only on his return to the quieter, less spectacular countryside of his native Suffolk that he developed his personal style. The V&A's collections include hundreds of works by Constable, including paintings, drawings and sketchbooks.
