As a young painting student, Constable spent the summer of 1800 sketching in the park of Helmingham in Suffolk, England. In the 1820s he returned to his pen and ink drawings and worked them into full-size oil paintings. Dell at Helmingham Park, at one time owned by the art collector John G. Johnson, was made in 1825-26 for James Pulham, a friend of Constable who lived near the park.
