You don’t normally put John Constable in the same sentence as Lucien Freud but the latter was a great admirer of the painter of The Hay Wain. ‘In Constable’, Freud wrote, ‘there is no false feeling.’ He added, rather intriguingly, ‘I may be quite wrong, but I can’t see Van Gogh’s ‘Boots’ without Constable behind them.’ Often seen as Turner’s inferior, Constable has depth as well as charm. And, if Freud is right, he may be just as important a precursor of modernism as his rival Turner.
