Notes:
Revision of thesis (Ph. D.)--University of London.
Includes bibliographical references (p. 253-259) and index.
"In this study, Ray Lambert provides a close study of Constable's landscapes and his writings about them. Linking the artist's theories with those of Joshua Reynolds, Lambert demonstrates that Constable was an intellectual painter whose works are not a revolutionary break with the past. Moreover, his theory and practice place him within the great tradition of landscape painting in the West."--BOOK JACKET.
