Porch of East Bergholt Church;East Bergholt Church and Churchyard

The church of East Bergholt stood next to the house where Constable was born. This study shows its entrance porch. Constable painted few moonlit views. Its mood is reflective, similar to the mood of Thomas Gray's 'Elegy Written in a Country Churchyard'. This famous poem was published in 1751.
