John Constable (British, 1776-1837)
Trees at Hampstead: The Path to Church, Exhibited at the Royal Academy 1822
Oil on canvas
36 x 28 ½ in. (91.4 x 72.4 cm)


The artist described the view as ‘a natural (but highly elegant) group of trees, ashes, elms, & oak – which will be of quite as much service as if I had bought the field and hedge row.’ The spire of Hampstead parish church can be seen at the bottom left. Constable and his wife lie buried in the graveyard there.
