  • Constable's father was a prosperous corn merchant and owned water mills in the Stour Valley at Flatford, Dedham, and East Bergholt, close to the large family house over which he presided, the rear view of which this sketch records. (The stand of trees and the lone poplar, on the right, and the sprightly little cupola make it clear that we are looking at the back of the house.) The church of East Bergholt would be visible here if the margin of the present composition were extended farther to the left. Constable in fact produced at least one other view of his birthplace in which he included the church, thereby gathering into the composition the symbolic presence of the two crucial components of the rural polity.-.the rector and the squire. As well, Constable painted views from the rear windows of East Bergholt House, in effect directing his gaze back out toward the ground from which this and related views of the back of the house were taken.
