'A Woodland Glade', from Constable's late period sold for £40,000.
Two previously unknown drawings by English artist John Constable that hung above a connoisseurs's bed for 50 years have sold for £115,000.
The small sketches of a woodland glade belonged to the late playwright Christopher Fry and were found by his son Tam while clearing out his father's home.
Mr Fry Snr placed the two pen and ink drawings on his bedroom wall after acquiring them in the 1950s.
After his death in 2005 aged 97, the drawings were placed in a cardboard box and left in a spare room.
Tam Fry, a retired BBC TV director, did not realise who the artist was at first until his daughter spotted the name John Constable RA inscribed on the mounts.
