If you visited the Royal Academy's recent exhibition Constable, Gainsborough, Turner and the Making of Landscape
you would have seen a charming group of paintings and sketches of Hampstead Heath by John Constable RA.
Although more associated with the countryside of Dedham Vale in Suffolk - the 'Constable Country' shown in famous paintings such as The Hay Wain - Constable actually spent a large chunk of his life in Hampstead, as a current exhibition at Burgh House and Hampstead Museum shows.
In this video, Rebecca Lodge of Burgh House takes us on a stroll across Hampstead Heath and explains how this pocket of countryside just a stone's through from the city was so important in Constable's life and work. All of the oil sketches featured in the video are from the Royal Academy's Collections.
