A Cottage in a Cornfield is an oil on canvas by painter John Constable in 1817. Constable was an Englishman who became one of the most praised artists of his time and dealt pretty well with patrons, allowing many of his works to survive until the present days. Constable had an innovative spirit, and in landscape painting, he found a genre where he could express his creativity with no boundaries. By observing the local rural areas of his country, especially Suffolk, where he grew up, the painter fell in love with these sights and sought to immortalize them through his works. With his habit of painting en plein air, Constable turned the attention to a more detailed, organic, and immediate contact with nature. A Cottage in a Cornfield was painted in Suffolk and first exhibited in 1817 in the Royal Academy Show.
For a painter that engaged with large-scale compositions - Constable called some of his big canvases “six-footers” - A Cottage in a Cornfield with its 31.5 x 26.3 cm (12.4 x 10.3 in) is a small picture compared to his most famous artworks. The picture was created during the early maturation of Constable’s manner and is already a captivating and stunning piece. Constable used a palette comprised of green, light yellow, blue, grey, and browns, which are commonly present in the painter’s work. In the bottom section of the composition, there is a patch of grass and fence in front of a house, and two donkeys are right at the entrance. The fence was done in light greys akin to the darker hue of the donkeys. On the right side, Constable painted a tree that goes from the grass until the top of the canvas, creating an exciting rhythm with a group of white flowers.
Beyond the fence, an extensive field was painted mostly in white yellow, creating a luminous area in the picture. Almost in the center, there is the cottage referenced in the title. The house was done in light yellow, brown, and grey. There are trees at each side of the house, the ones closer and colder and the ones at the right distanced and painted with a blueish green. The sky was painted with light blue, suggesting a sunny day with some white clouds.
