Description

Thomas Gainsborough was an innovative printmaker as well as a renowned painter. Etching methods used by Gainsborough are still practised in the workshop and his prints can be viewed in the House.

 

Inspired by a painting at the National Gallery, London
‘Mr and Mrs Andrews’ Thomas Gainsborough (1727-1788)
1750
69.8 cm × 119.4 cm
Oil on Canvas

This portrait of Mr Robert (1725–1806) and Mrs Frances Andrews (about 1732–1780) is the masterpiece of Gainsborough’s early career. It has been described as a ‘triple portrait’ – of Robert Andrews, his wife and his land.Behind Mr and Mrs Andrews is a wide view looking south over the valley of the River Stour, just outside Sudbury. Robert Andrews owned nearly 3000 acres and much of the land we see here belonged to him. Gainsborough has displayed his skills as a painter of convincingly changing weather and naturalistic scenery, which was still a novelty at this time.

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, Gainsborough's House is currently undergoing an exciting new development, Reviving an Artist’s Birthplace. This is a two-year, £10.5m project to refurbish the House and build new galleries behind, to become the National Centre for Gainsborough.
