Oil sketch of trees at Hampstead by Constable, England, 19th century.
Painting of a cloudy sky and tall trees.
The artist described the view as 'a natural (but highly elegant) group of trees, ashes, elms, & oak &c - 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.
