John Constable (1776 –1837) was an English landscape painter in the Romantic tradition. 

To the sky studies he added notes, often on the back of the sketches, of the prevailing weather
 conditions, direction of light, and time of day, believing that the sky was "the key note, the 
standard of scale, and the chief organ of sentiment" in a landscape painting. 
In this habit he is known to have been influenced by the pioneering work of the meteorologist 
Luke Howard on the classification of clouds; Constable's annotations of his own copy of 
Researches About Atmospheric Phaenomena by Thomas Forster show him to have been 
fully abreast of meteorological terminology.
