This is an unfinished version of a picture that Constable first exhibited in 1825. It was acquired after Constable's death by his friend William Purton. An inscription on the back suggests that it was left unfinished deliberately: 'Constable told Purton that the sky so satisfied & pleased him, that he never would touch the canvass again for fear of spoiling it.'
