A Wooded Landscape with Horses Greetings Card


This greetings card features the painting ‘A Wooded Landscape’ by Thomas Gainsborough (1727-88) 1755.

‘A young farmhand, having taken two horses to rest in the shade of a large tree, turns to look back at his companions, two of whom are busily loading a cart with hay. Two villagers lean on a gate and watch the labourers, with a church tower and the roof of a house appearing through the trees in front of the village. This compositional devise, as well as the low horizon and pink glow of the evening sky, shows the influence of Dutch landscape painters on Gainsborough’s work in the 1750s as can be seen in Paulus Potter’s rural scene’ (Extract from ‘Gainsborough and the legacy of Landscape’ Masterpieces from Woburn Abbey Exhibition Catalogue (Page. 40)).

Gainsborough's House

Gainsborough's House is in the heart of Suffolk, in Sudbury, and the birthplace and childhood home of Thomas Gainsborough – one of the great figures of British and World Art history, renowned not only in his advancement of portraiture to a higher level but also in being one of the founders of the British School of landscape painting.
A bricked Georgian Grade-I listed house with an intimate walled garden featuring a 400 year old Mulberry Tree, in 2019, the Gainsborough’s House Society received an investment of £10m to upgrade and ‘revive the artist’s birthplace’. On 21 November 2022, the museum re-opened to the public after a transformational refurbishment. The museum is the international centre for Thomas Gainsborough and is now the largest gallery in Suffolk.

Visitors can view the family house, the new gallery spaces, examples of Gainsborough’s work, alongside specialist exhibitions and the famed garden and Mulberry Tree dating to the early 1600s. The space also has a cafe and visitor’s shop.
