Unknown Constables found hidden for 200 years

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

Four previously unknown drawings by John Constable have been discovered hidden among a jumble of letters, poems, jokes and even dried leaves accumulated in a family scrapbook made over the course of the late 18th and 19th centuries.

The auction house Sotheby’s said it had authenticated “an extraordinary re-emergence” of drawings by one of Britain’s most important artists.

“These works have lain hidden for the best part of 200 years in an album compiled by the Mason family of Colchester,” said Mark Griffith-Jones, a Sotheby’s specialist in British watercolours and drawings. “It is full of all sorts of weird and wonderful objects and images and these four drawings.”

That headline was so confusing.  I thought it was about british policemen that had been hidden for 200 years.
