Tottenham Church

Not on view

When this painting of the parish church of All Hallows, Tottenham, in north London, entered The Met’s collection in 1915, it was thought to be an early work by John Constable. However, further study of the canvas, including the costume of the woman on the path and the architecture of the church, indicated a date about 1830, when Constable was working in a more accomplished and confident manner. It has recently been suggested that the painting may have been made by one of the artist’s sons, Charles Golding Constable (1821–1879) or Lionel Bicknell Constable (1828–1887).
