Thomas Gainsborough is one of the most important English painters of the 18th century. The son of a fabric merchant, born in Sudbury, Sussex on May 14, 1727, was artistically a non-conformist, which was one of the reasons why he made his breakthrough relatively late. He had a difficult relationship with the Royal Academy of Arts because he rejected their preferred traditional continental style of painting and opposed the sober, academic style of painting to his concept of sensibility.

Thomas Gainsborough was of the opinion that the viewer of an image must be able to grasp the depicted motifs even without prior knowledge. To achieve this, he used an unusual color scheme, natural backdrops and a contrasting content between the main subject and the background.

Examples are his famous pictures "Cottage Girl with Dog and Pitcher" and "Morning Walk". One of his masterpieces, "The Blue Boy" - an oil painting depicting a richly-dressed young man in old-fashioned blue garb - is a prime example of the inappropriateness of Thomas Gainsborough. He wanted to decide a dispute with his rival Joshua Reynolds , which was about the fact that the color blue also centrally in a picture is usable.

Thomas Gainsborough died on 2 August 1788 in London from a cancer. © Meisterdrucke
