John Constable (1776-1836) is considered to be one of the great English artists in the history of art. He prepared a painting that was entitled "Sketch for Hadleigh Castle dated to c.1828-1829. A small image of that painting is shown in the upper left-hand corner below. An enlarge picture of the lower left-hand corner shows the shepherd, crook in hand, walking along the path with his sheepdog following along behind. Constable would have seen various kinds of sheepdogs while preparing for his landscapes. Was the dog a Beardie-like?
