Our Romantic History
In 1816 the then owner of Wivenhoe House, General Francis Rebow, paid John Constable 100 guineas to paint his family home and substantial grounds. It was a labour of love for Constable. The money helped secure his financial future and win the hand of his fiancée Maria Bicknell, whose father was not keen on the marriage. The painting now hangs in pride of place at the National Gallery of Art, Washington and with the recent £9.1 million sale of Constable’s The Lock as a guideline, it was 100 guineas well spent.
