The art of Thomas Gainsborough : "a little business for the eye" by Michael Rosenthal ( Book )
8 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 752 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Michael Rosenthal provides a lively account of Gainsborough's varied life and diverse artworks. Rosenthal also examines for the first time the artist's oeuvre as a whole and how the trajectory of his career reflected the problems, dilemmas and situations that were common to other painters of his time. This book sets Gainsborough's art within its social and cultural contexts, shedding new light on the art worlds of London and the English provinces and on the ways in which Gainsborough's painting would have been seen and understood by his contemporaries." "The book begins by charting the geography and professional tactics of a career that took Gainsbourgh from London to Suffolk, Bath and eventually back to London. Rosenthal looks at such wide-ranging topics as how artists manipulated the press, the issue of likeness in portraiture, how rivalries between painters were handled in public and private, and the pressures of the public exhibition. The second part of the book explores the manifestations of Gainsborugh's aesthetic in portraiture, landscape painting and paintings of sensibility. Rosenthal concludes with a discussion of the problem of defining a role and proper form for the fine arts at a time of rapid social change and innovation."--BOOK JACKET
