One of the most appealing artists of the 18th century, Gainsborough is renowned for such elegant portraits as The Blue Boy and Countess Howe and also pioneered a new form of landscape with a moody sensibility that prefigured the Romantic movement. In this well-illustrated World of Art study, Professor Vaughan draws on recently discovered material to provide a fresh perspective on both the life and art of this master.
