Memoirs of the Life of John Constable: Composed Chiefly of His Letters
By John Constable (Edited by Charles Robert Leslie)
This gives some insight into the life and mind of Constable through letters he wrote to various people, as well as some background information from the compiler. I found it to be very interesting to see what he said about each piece and what he had to go through to get some of them done. It does contain a section in the back with black and white copies of his pieces, but this would not be a good book for specifically viewing his paintings.
John Constable: A Kingdom of His Own
By Anthony Bailey
This is more of biography and also contains some small pictures, but this is also more for gaining information on the artist.
John Constable: The Making of a Master
By Mark Evans
This has beautiful prints of his paintings as well as background information.
By Jonathan Clarkson
Another book with beautiful prints and background information.
Discovering Great Artists
By Maryann F. Kohl
“‘Discovering Great Artists’ has 75 great artists featured in 110 amazingly fun and unique quality art appreciation activities for children. They will experience the styles and techniques of the great masters, from the Renaissance to the Present. A brief biography of each artist is included with a fully illustrated, child-tested art activity, featuring painting, drawing, sculpture, photography, architecture, and more. Includes such greats as Da Vinci, Michelangelo, Rembrandt, Monet, Degas, Picasso, Van Gogh, Dali, Matisse, Pollock, and O’Keeffe. 1998 Benjamin Franklin Silver Award, 2002 Practical Homeschooling Reader Award. Full ‘click-to’ resource guide at Bright Ring’s website to show each artist’s most famous works.” Ages 3-12. (Includes one John Constable project.)
Sadly, I was unable to find a single children’s book (other than a coloring book which I don’t recommend) about Constable.
