General research material

Scope and Content

Throughout the course of his life Constable's work caused him to research and collect material relating to British art and artists generally. The resulting records were organised, in particular, into two main record series:

-Files on individual artists

-A card index organised by artist, giving details of ownership of individual works (the majority in private collections)
