About John Constable's Correspondence With C. R. Leslie

This database is a collection of letters between John Constable, one of Britain's most famous landscape artists, and C. R. Leslie, a friend of Constable's and also a famous artist. Born in East Bergholt, Suffolk, Constable's correspondence letters were originally compiled to portray in narrative form early nineteenth century life in this Suffolk village. While this database would be primarily useful to those interested in this area's local history, it may also be interesting to study the biographical details of a renowned artist.
