7 puzzle(s) | 936 downloads Thomas Gainsborough
Thomas Gainsborough was an English painter born on may 14th 1727. He’s one of the most famous portrait and landscape painters of the 18th century in Great Britain.

Despite of an interest in the landscape representation, Gainsborough had to give in the wills of the “sponsors” o f that time and paint portraits.

In a first place, his portraits had a reduced format, a background of English countryside and characters were on an equal footing (Mr. and Mrs. Andrews).
The first famous portraits of Gainsborough were those of his daughters.

From 1759 to 1774, he continued to paint portraits and began to send his work to the Society of Arts Exhibition of London, and then to the Royal Academy yearly exhibitions. He chose carefully his paintings and sent only the portraits of his most famous customers in order to draw the attention to him (portraits of king Georges III and Queen Charlotte).

Despite a growing reputation in the portrait’s art, his passion for landscape paint had not decreased. That’s why, at the end of his life, Gainsborough focus his work on the realization of paintings based on his observation of nature: The watering place (1777), The cart to do market (1786), The fight between two little shepherd and dogs (1783)
