An oil on canvas showing "England's Bay of Naples" by the English Romantic painter. In October 1816 Constable went to Osmington near Weymouth for his honeymoon; the idea for the painting probably dates from this period. A larger version called Osmington Shore was exhibited by him at the British Institution in 1819. John Constable, Weymouth Bay: Bowleaze Cove and Jordon Hill Copyright The National Gallery, London.
