The Drinking Boy

A 1 track ambient single (3m ) — released August 7th 2020 on Touch

Constable is renowned as one of Britain's greatest landscape artists. He is known principally for his paintings of Dedham Vale, Suffolk, England, the area where he grew up and now known as "Constable Country". Never commercially successful in England, when his painting 'The Hay Wain' was exhibited in Paris in 1821 it was highly praised and admired. His work greatly influenced the Barbizon school of painters and the French impressionists of the late 19th century.

On April 8th 1826, Constable sent a large landscape to the Royal Academy. This painting portrayed cornfields, a country lane bordered by trees and a young shepherd with his sheep. Constable referred to it familiarly as 'The Drinking Boy': we know it as 'The Cornfield', one of his most famous works.

On Friday 14th May 2010 at The National Gallery, London, Chris presented and performed his soundtrack for the painting "The Cornfield" by John Constable.
