Thomas Gainsborough
(1727 - 1788)

Thomas Gainsborough
Self-Portrait, 1787


"I'm sick of Portraits, and wish very much to take my viol-da-gam and walk off to some sweet village, where I can paint landskips and enjoy the fag end of life in quietness and ease."


Thomas Gainsborough was an English painter of portraits, landscapes, and 'fancy pictures', and one of the most individual geniuses in British art.
