A book all about Constable's painting, The White Horse written by the artist William Kentridge and the curator, Aimee Ng.

Designed to foster critical engagement and interest the specialist and non-specialist alike, each book in the Frick Diptych series illuminates a single work in the Frick's rich collection with an essay by a Frick curator paired with a contribution from a contemporary artist or writer. The White Horse (1819) by John Constable (1776 1837) is the first of the series of the "six-footers," monumental landscapes of the English countryside that would become the artist's most famous works. Constable described the scene as "a placid representation of a serene, grey morning, summer." Years later, he said, "there are generally in the life of an artist perhaps one, two or three pictures, on which hang more than usual interest - this is mine".

An essay by Aimee Ng, Frick Curator, paired with a contribution by artist William Kentridge bring to life one of Constable's most serene depictions of rural life, the artist's personal favourite.
