East Bergholt church and West Lodge from behind Golding Constable's house

Constable portrayed buildings in detail through these series of paintings and sketches of small aspects of architecture and their surroundings around his family home at East Bergholt such as this view through the trees at the back of East Bergholt House at sunset towards West Lodge with the church on the left.


The interplay of trees and foliage clearly had appeal to the artist, and the inclusion of part of West Lodge may have had some recognition for his friendship with Mrs Roberts, elderly neighbour and friend of the Constables.
