Constantine was assistant to Sir William Rothenstein in the 1930s, and became Director of Graves Art Gallery in Sheffield from 1938 until the 1950s. Constantine is best known for his watercolours of landscapes, seashore scenes and marine paintings, and in particular views of the Yorkshire and Lancashire coasts, and scenes of Cornwall.
