"Possibly the greatest English portraitist and landscape artist of 18th century England, Thomas Gainsborough had undoubtedly the most famous individual image. The celebrated Blue boy is just one of hundreds of powerfully impressive images created by Gainsborough. By the middle of his life, he was a master at depicting the men, women and children of his day, and his genius made him a wealthy man. However, Gainsborough's real passion was landscape painting and he worked in both genres throughout his life. The fancy pictures created towards the end of his career were a result of combining landscape and portraiture, which are now seen by many as his greatest achievement."--Container.

A clear and brief introduction to the work with some discussion about the social context in which it was made. Some of the speaking by art historians is not well recorded.
