Thomas Gainsborough, 1727-1788, was an English oil painter. His liking for landscapes was shown in the way he merged figures of the portraits with the scenes behind them. The later Gainsborough art was characterised by a light palette and easy, economical strokes. Kitty (1945) is a notable fictional film about the artist. In 2011, the portrait of Miss Read was sold for a record price of £6.5M. The most famous Gainsborough paintings are Portrait of Mrs. Graham; Mary and Margare; William Hallett and His Wife Elizabeth; and Cottage Girl with Dog and Pitcher. -- The Copyright of Scripts is Reserved by Toperfect.
