John Constable, R.A. PORTRAIT OF ELIZABETH, LADY CROFT (1754–1815) EAST BERGHOLT, SUFFOLK 1776 - 1837 HAMPSTEAD inscribed lower left: Elizth. Lewis, Wife to / Sir Herbert Croft Bart. oil on canvas, unlined 76.8 x 64.1 cm.; 30 1/4 x 25 1/4 in. Provenance Probably commissioned by the sitter's brother, Henry Greswold Lewis (1754–1829), Malvern Hall; Thence by descent to Mr W. Suckling Suckling,at Highwood, near Romsey, where recorded in 1939 by R. Edwards (see Literature); Possibly anonymous sale ('The Property of a Lady'), London, Sotheby's, 7 April 1954, lot 93; Anonymous sale, London, Christie's, 11 June 2003, lot 3. Literature R. Edwards, 'A Portrait by John Constable in the Tate Gallery', inTheBurlington Magazine, no. 434, vol. LXXIV, May 1939, p. 204, footnote 8; G. Reynolds, The Early Paintings and Drawings of John Constable, 2 vols, New Haven and London 1996, text vol., p. 117 (as another version by the artist). Catalogue Note In 1807, at a time when Constable\’s work was struggling to gain critical recognition, the artist was introduced to the Tollemache family at Helmingham Hall, Suffolk, home of the Earl and Countess of Dysart. Recognising a precocious young talent the family commissioned Constable to make copies of portraits by Sir Joshua Reynolds, John Hoppner and Daniel Gardner in their collection. No doubt encouraged by his parents, who had been pushing Constable to apply himself to portraiture – a financially more secure and steady line of art than landscape painting – the artist accepted. This associating with the Dysarts led to further important commissions from their friends and family, including the Countess\’s brother, Henry Greswold Lewis, whose country house, Malvern Hall, in Warwickshire, Constable painted in 1809 and again in 1819. This portrait represents the Countess of Dysart\’s sister, Elizabeth Lewis, wife of the author Sir Herbert Croft, 5th Bt. (1751–1816), and is based upon an earlier portrait by Daniel Gardner (Detroit Institute of Arts, Michigan). The duty stamp on the reverse of the unlined canvas suggests that the picture was painted circa 1807, and certainly not before. Another version of this portrait by Constable was sold in these rooms, 22 November 2007, lot 62 and again at Christie\’s, London, 9 December 2016, lot 168, for £81,250. The provenance of the two paintings has been confused in both the literature and past sale catalogues. Constable often painted repetitions of his Dysart/Lewis/Tollemache family pictures, commissioned by various different members of the family. The picture that was recently sold at Christie\’s can be securely traced, thanks to an illustration in the catalogue, to a sale at Sotheby\’s on 10 December 1925, lot 125, to which it was consigned by Mrs Hugh Gurney, wife of Captain Hugh Gurney, a descendant of Henry Greswold Lewis, the sitter\’s brother.A label on the reverse of the canvas, dated 1821, states that it was the property of the Countess of Dysart.1 Both Lewis's sisters who held the title Countess of Dysart died without children and the picture wastherefore presumably inherited byhim upontheir death. Ralph Edwards makes it clear, however, that this picture was at Highwood, near Romsey, in 1939 and states that it was commissioned by Henry Greswold Lewis directly for Malvern Hall.2 We are grateful to Anne Lyles for endorsing the attribution to Constable following first-hand inspection. 1 To add to the confusion, both Elizabeth's elder sisters held the title Countess of Dysart; Magdalena having married Lionel Tollemache, 5th Earl of Dysart (1734–1799), and Anna Maria having married Wilbraham Tollemache (1739–1821), who succeeded his brother as 6th Earl of Dysart in 1799. 2 See Edwards 1939, p. 204, footnote 8.

John Constable, R.A. SHIPPING ON THE THAMES OR MEDWAY EAST BERGHOLT, SUFFOLK 1776 - 1837 HAMPSTEAD Pencil on laid paper 122 by 200 mm Provenance By descent to the artist's son, CharlesGolding Constable (1821-1879), who presented it to Henry Roche, who, in turn, presented itto Arthur Henry Lyell (1853-1925), 1876, by family descent to the current owners Catalogue Note This drawing has only recently come to the attention of scholars, as it has lain hiddenfrom view in a distinguished Scottish collection since the 1870s. Itdates to the spring of 1803 when,between April and the middle of May, Constabletravelled with the East Indianman Coutts, a ship whosecaptain - Robin Torin (1760-1824) - wasan old friend of his fathers. The Coutts sailed down the Thames to Gravesend, whereupon Constable took the opportunity to walk to Rochester Castle.He then journeyedonto Chatham, where he recorded in a letter to his friend John Dunthorne (1770-1844) that he 'hired a boat to see the men-of-war, which are here in great numbers'.1 He created numerous drawings of these vessels, many of which have been preserved in the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.2 Amongst the most important sheets executed at this time, were three studies of the Nelson's Victory. These were sold at Sotheby's on 19 March 2003 as lots 138-140 and achieved £40,800, £216,160 and £95,200 respectively. By the 30 April Constable had returned to the Coutts at Gravesend. The voyage continued and they sailed on past the Kentish Downs.Atthis point the weather turned stormy and the ship was forced to shelter for three days at North Foreland. Once they reached Deal, Constable, who was unsettled by the heavy seas, rapidly disembarked and headedstraight forLondon. This sheet has a longhistory and can betraced back to Constable's son, Charles who, serving in the navy, took a special interest in the Coutts drawings. In1876, it was presentedto the Scot,Arthur Henry Lyell,whose family seatis Kinnordy House in Angus. Arthur's elder brother was Sir Charles Lyell, 1st Bt. (1797-1875), the celebrated geologistand author. We are grateful for Dr Lyles for her help when cataloguing this work. 1. Ed. R.B.

Description:
John Constable R.A. (Suffolk 1776-1837 Hampstead) View on the Orwell near Ipswich inscribed and dated 'Ipswich/5 Aug 1815' (lower right) pencil on laid paper 14.3 x 20.6cm (5 5/8 x 8 1/8in). with a second landscape sketch verso Footnotes Provenance Seago Collection, UK, by whom offered Sale, Christie's, London, 8 June 1976, lot 172 Collection of William Jenkins Esq, and thence by descent to the present owner Literature G. Reynolds, The Early Paintings and Drawings of John Constable, New Haven and London, p.207, nos. 15.14, 15.15, ill., pl. 1225 Constable made another study on the same day: Shipping near Ipswich, now in the collection of the Victoria and Albert Museum, London (inv. no. 308-1888), was part of the large bequest made to the museum by Minna Constable, the artist's daughter. Both drawings were sketched while Constable was returning from visiting the Rev. F.H. Barnwell at Brightwell where he painted the small oil painting of Brightwell Church and Village now in the collection of Tate Britain (inv. no. 3121). When the present drawing was offered at Christie's in 1976 it came from the property of a Mr Seago. Edward Seago (1910-1974) was a Norwich-born landscape artist whose paintings of East Anglian waterways, characterized by low horizons and billowing skies, show a clear debt to Constable and it seems very likely that he was the previous owner of this atmospheric pencil sketch.
