this is Jonh Constable
born in England, she was one of the first artist that took to making small sketches with oil paint.
this was to allow and show the effects of light. most of them where small and done on the exterior, then he would go to his studio and try to create a paining but this was usually not the case, as he made this little sketches for his own entertainment and enjoyment.
