Publisher Comments:

Thomas Gainsborough was one of the most brilliant and original portrait painters of the eighteenth century, surpassing his great rival Reynolds with his ability to capture a likeness and in his superb handling of paint.

Each volume contains an introductory essay, forty-eight full-page colour plates, accompanied by extensive notes, and numerous comparative illustrations in colour or black and white.
