Most widely held works by Thomas Gainsborough
The art of Thomas Gainsborough : "a little business for the eye" by Michael Rosenthal( Book )

7 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 723 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."--Jacket

Thomas Gainsborough : a country life by Hugh Belsey( Book )

8 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 382 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This new study concentrates on the early life and works of the great eighteenth-century artist, Thomas Gainsborough. Gainsborough's talent was evident at a young age, and before he established himself as one of London's leading portrait artists he was able to indulge in his true passion, landscapes, as well as provide portraits for a provincial clientele." "This volume not only sheds light on the development of one of England's most revered painters, but also offers an intimate look at the work of a young painter in the thrall of his subjects, and just beginning to realise his full talents."--BOOK JACKET

Perhaps the greatest of all English artists, Thomas Gainsborough (1727-1788) was born in the small town of Sudbury on the river Stour in Suffolk. His house is now both a museum and a research center for Gainsborough studies. It holds an outstanding collection of paintings, drawings, prints, books, and memorabilia relating to the artist and his time. This book presents both the highlights of this collection, which has not hitherto been published, and significant new research and insights relating to Gainsborough's art, character, and career. Works in the collection include fine examples by Gainsborough himself at all stages of his career, along with paintings and engravings by the artist's mentors, Francis Hayman and Hubert-Francois Gravelot, and by his followers, notably his nephew Gainsborough Dupont and Thomas Rowlandson, and by other East Anglian artists, including John Constable
