It's a painting so iconic that it almost defines picturesque Suffolk.
Indeed a visit to the county isn't complete without a trip to Constable Country to see Flatford Mill, the location for the Hay Wain.
This summer marks the 200th anniversary of the painting of the bucolic scene at the River Stour - and the National Trust is planning some special celebrations.
The National Trust in partnership with Essex Cultural Diversity Project has commissioned a creative project that celebrates the anniversary.
Artists Laurence Harding and Liz Harrington, who specialise in experimental and historic photography processes, will work at Flatford to create an immersive and interactive installation that explores the parallels between photography and painting and celebrates the idyllic views that inspired Constable.
The finished piece will evolve over the summer and will be made up of floor to ceiling cyanotype panels inspired by the landscape, photographs taken using pinhole cameras and smaller pieces created using a range of other historical and experimental photographic techniques.
It's also hoped that vsitors and local community groups will be able to take part in creating the piece
The final work will be on display in The Granary exhibition space at Flatford later in the year.
The artists, Laurence and Liz said
"We are thrilled and honoured to have been selected for this exciting commission... offering an alternative way to interact with Constable’s work and the location in an accessible, fun and creative way.”
