Here is some acquisition news that I missed earlier this year. The Fondation Custodia in Paris acquired the above plein air sketch in April by John Constable catalogued as View from the back of a terrace of houses in Hampstead, c.1821-22. The work was acquired through dealers Richard Green.

It will feature in a fabulous travelling exhibition which is due to open at the Fondation Custodia next February. Entitled True to Nature: Open-Air Painting in Europe 1780-1870, the exhibition will then travel to the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge opening in Summer 2021.
