John Constable, to John Britton





Extent & medium

Content Description

He agrees with Britton that the print of his "No." is too black. His friend Lucas was a pupil of Reynolds and he is "knocking Reynolds's black fog out of him". He ponders the difficulty of transposing his landscapes into black and white, and values Britton's advice. His next No. will contain "Old Sarum".
