<br />
The Royal Academy is to exhibit the first artwork by a Constable in 200 years - in the form of a drawing by a seven-year-old descendant of The Hay Wain painter.<br />
<br />
Valya Constable, the great-great-great-great-grandson of John Constable, has had his sketch of his nan's feet and legs accepted by the prestigious art institution.<br />
<br />
It will form part of a young artists' exhibition and will go on display next week.
