Constable painted this huge canvas shortly after the death of his wife. John Fisher, the archdeacon of Salisbury cathedral and Constable’s friend, invited him to visit and he began painting to help work through his grief. The future of the Anglican church was also in question at the time and Constable’s emotions on this and his recent bereavement are captured via symbols of hope (light, a rainbow) cutting through the gloomy sky."
