Silk Habotai Scarf – Mrs George Sandys


Designed exclusively for Gainsborough’s House to accompany the stunning ‘de Laszlo’ exhibition, a pure Silk Habotai Scarf with hand rolled hems featuring Mrs George Sandys.

This portrait demonstrates how the artist’s extraordinary visual memory influenced his compositions throughout his career.

This portrait of Mrs George Sandys is influenced by Van Dyck’s portrait of Lucy Hay, Countess of Carlisle. De László saw that portrait in 1911, while staying at Wentworth Woodhouse painting Countess Fitzwilliam and her family. This demonstrates how the artist’s extraordinary visual memory influenced his compositions throughout his career. Such works exemplify de László’s artistic lineage as a successor in the Grand Manner style to portraitists such as Van Dyck, Gainsborough, Reynolds and Lawrence.

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.
