Display caption

Beaumont was a talented amateur and friend of many artists, including Constable. His work reflects many influences. Here the simplifying of masses and broad presentation of the view derives from Wilson and imparts a strong sense of classical order to the design, which is nevertheless based on simple observation of natural forms, as was advocated by Beaumont's friend Constable.
