Green landscape of cottage and windmill with workhorse to the foreground.

Believed to be that of Old Mill House, East Bergholt, looking out towards the Common and the windmill owned by the artist's father Golding Constable, and depicted in a number of sketches with a similar view.  However the position of the windmill appears to alter to fit each composition.
