    The cheap Constable

    John Constable 1776-1837

    When a painting of Constable's come up for Auction people queue up to buy it. Over a million pounds you would expect to have to pay.
    Well at the Stanstead Mountfitchet rooms of Sworders on 26th July a painting sold for £9,800.

    Don't get excited......It was not a great landscape but a portrait of George Elmer Circa 1908 by Constable

    Constable and Turner both go down as bad portrait painters.

    This is why the low price.
