John Constable The Making of a Master 
Mark Evans
This fascinating book presents a new interpretation of Constable’s work, placing his justly vaunted naturalism in the context of his wider practice, in particular his talent for copying, and his extensive collection of prints. It shows how his reverence for Ruisdael, Rubens, and Claude was entirely compatible with his revolutionary handling of paint. Where others competed with the Old Masters, Constable assimilated their ideas and values, to imbue his own naturalistic vision with dynamism. 
The book is packed with oil sketches made outdoors, which was central to Constable’s working method. He also used full-scale oil sketches to transfer the freshness of his cloud studies and sketches of Hampstead Heath, Brighton Beach, and Salisbury to his ‘six-footer’ oil paintings such as The Hay Wain. V & A Publishing  192pp   Hb.
