The series has always been highly regarded for its insight and authority, providing an invaluable introduction to key artists and movements in art history.

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.

Thomas Gainsborough (1727-88) was one of the most brilliant 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. He was also a talented and sensitive landscape painter and has been hailed as the father of the British landscape schools, paving the way for artists such as Constable and Turner. This book contains many of Gainsborough's most famous works. Including Mr and Mrs Andrews and The Blue Boy, and also many lesser-known and revealing works.
