Thomas Gainsborough and the Modern Woman

SKU :9780931537370

Our Price: $ 39.95

This beautifully illustrated volume focuses specifically on Thomas Gainsborough's portraits of the most renowned society women of eighteenth century Britain, and the way in which the artist executed these special commissions. Thomas Gainsborough and the Modern Woman draws us away from the artist's predominant reputation as a landscape painter, and shows how such portraits were both an affirmation of Gainsborough's own idiosyncratic position in the art world of Georgian England and the important public statements for sitters who sought to fashion themselves as self-assured, progressive women.
