GAINSBOROUGH

WILLIAM VAUGHAN    Book Number: 81353    Product format: Paperback

Another in Thames and Hudson's excellent World of Art series, this time we examine the work and life of a great British master, Thomas Gainsborough (1727-88). Perhaps the important theme of the book is how, beneath his obvious charm and successful way with public and patrons alike, there lay a bedrock of shrewd observation and artistic pictorial intelligence which has endowed his work with a value that has stood the test of time and will doubtless continue to do so. With 172 captioned illus. in colour and b/w, there is also a complete list of featured works with full details of title, date, medium, size and current whereabouts, plus a handy Gainsborough chronology. The elegant The Morning Walk 1785 of a newlywed couple. Pomperanian Bitch and Puppy, Rocky Landscape, Giovanna Baccelli in all her finery, George IV shown as a military officer, The Woodcutter's Return, Uvedale Tomkyns Price are all here and more. 224pp quality paperback.
