‘Gainsborough’s Gold’ by Maggi Hambling CBE


A limited-edition Giclee print by Sudbury born artist Maggi Hambling CBE, who has established a reputation as one of Britain’s most significant and controversial painters and sculptors.

Hambling, the renowned contemporary artist and native of Sudbury, is a long-standing supporter of the museum. She remembers the inspiration she took as a child visiting Gainsborough’s House: ‘…the experience of seeing great painting for the first time remains with me to this day. I couldn’t believe that cows or clouds, woods or dogs, trees and land could be made so real with paint…this childhood encounter was exciting and mysterious’.

Originally part of a summer exhibition, Face to Face: Portraits from the Andrew Lambirth Collection (11 June – 16 October 2016) at Gainsborough’s House and sold to support the development of the capital project at Gainsborough’s House.

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.
