The collection of Thomas Gainsborough drawings at Gainsborough’s House is one of the most comprehensive in the world. It includes examples from all stages of the artist’s career but also shows a broad range of subject-matter, including figure studies as well as landscapes and buildings. Above all, it demonstrates the extraordinary variety of techniques that Gainsborough adopted from pencil, chalk and washes to oil varnishes and even skimmed milk. This exhibition includes drawings not often seen and shows the remarkable breadth of Gainsborough’s practice.
