Описание: When Thomas Gainsborough (1727-1788) arrived in the spa town of Bath, at the age of 31, he was an artist of modest reputation. When he left 16 years later,
he had completed such major works as "The Blue Boy" and "Peasants Going to Market" and was recognized as one of Europe's foremost painters. In this study, Susan Sloman
examines how this transformation took place.
She offers a view of Gainsborough's development during his middle years as well as information about Bath and its role, for a few
decades in the 18th century, as a cultural centre of Europe. Drawing on documents and a variety of little-known contemporary published sources, the book seeks to illuminate artistic
activity in Bath, and Gainsborough's part in it. Sloman describes the supporting players in the artist's career, including his banker, patrons, suppliers, wine merchant, tailor and other
artists and writers, and considers how Gainsborough's place in the commercial life of the town influenced his portrait practice and the evolution of his personal style.
work also explores how his family life regularly impinged on his professional career and how his wife's relationship with the dukes of Beaufort influenced the patronage he enjoyed and
his friendship with members of the Price family. Sloman reveals how Gainsborough's prominence as an artist and Bath's as a cultural hub were intimately connected during the middle
years of the 18th century, a period during which the artist and his town flourished together.

Описание: Once described as "brilliant but eccentric . . . too licentious to be published," Gainsborough's letters delighted his friends and they delight us. This book gathers together all the known letters by the illustrious eighteenth-century British painter and connects them with a narrative of Gainsborough's life that gives the correspondence a biographical coherence. The letters reveal a man who was generous and warm-hearted, devoted to his family and friends, convivial, often dissipated yet modest and God-fearing, usually sensible in his own affairs and always so in the advice he gave to others. We also learn a great deal about Gainsborough's painting: his methods and techniques, his attitude toward portraiture and landscape, his relationships with his patrons, the prices he charged, his concern about how his pictures were hung, and his ambivalence about the value of the Royal Academy exhibitions. Running through the letters, too, is his love of music and his friendship with musicians. The 110 letters, which include correspondence with Gainsborough's friends and relatives, are supplemented by thirty-six documents in the artist's own hand, chiefly instructions to his bankers and receipts for payments from clients. Illustrations are included of all the people to whom Gainsborough wrote whose portraits exist and of friends and works of art described in the letters. More than 300 notes identify these people and help to explain the text.
