Thomas Gainsborough (Sudbury, Suffolk, 1727 – London, 1788) was an English landscape and portrait painter. He was the dominant British portraitist of the second half of the 18th century.

Some of his most popular paintings include: "The Blue Boy", "The Market Cart" (Tate Gallery, London), "The Wood Gatherers", and "Robert Andrews and Mary, His Wife" (National Gallery, London). He also created many beautiful pictures of his wife and daughters such as "Self-Portrait with His Wife", "Thomas Gainsborough, with His Wife and Elder Daughter, Mary", "The Painter's Daughters, Margaret and Mary, Chasing Butterfly", "The Painter's Daughters, Margaret and Mary, Holding a Cat".

From 1759 to 1774 Gainsborough lived in Bath, the fashionable resort of the aristocracy, where he deliberately refined his portrait style in the manner of Anthony van Dyck. [1]
