Gainsborough

Thomas Gainsborough may seem to be the most quintessentially English of 18th century painters, with his depictions of the landed gentry posing with casual if studied grace on their estates.


Thomas Gainsborough may seem to be the most quintessentially English of 18th century painters, with his depictions of the landed gentry posing with casual if studied grace on their estates. His career, however, illustrates the pressures and restraints of a contemporary art world where patronage, fashion and academic status might effectively control the nature of artistic output. This talk discusses the range of his portraits, the landscapes that were his first love and the development of the flickering, feathery style that style that characterises his later work.
