Lionel Bicknell Constable was the seventh and last child of John Constable and his wife Maria. He was born in Hampstead in 1828, and ended his days not far from there in St. John's Wood. Like his father, he specialised in landscape painting, and undoubtedly learned to paint studying his father's works. He exhibited at the Royal Academy between 1849-1855, as well as at the British Institute.
