John Constable was one of the famous English landscape painters preceding the Impressionists. He was commissioned by all sorts of people including the owner of this park named Wivenhoe.
The commissioner had one request: to capture the entire park scenery in one painting. Naturally, this was impossible to do since some of the important landmarks were at 360 degrees to one another.
So Constable, using artistic licensing, shifted some of the parts of Wivenhoe so they could all fit in one frame.
