Well, one great double rainbow deserves another. This work by Englishman John Constable (1776-1837), one of the greatest romantic painters of all time, is widely regarded as one of the best water colour paintings of all time. For its time (1835) it looks astonishingly progressive with hints of impressionism and even expressionism. More on Constable in the wikipedia article linked to below.
