   schema:description "Although Thomas Gainsborough (1727-1788) sold relatively few of his landscape paintings he regarded them as his most important work. When not occupied with his lucrative portrait business the artist devoted much of his time to the creation of landscapes 'of his own Brain' (as he termed them). The English countryside, its forms, textures and colours, and the people and animals that lived and worked in it, inspired a lifetime's work in many media, from oils to etching. This new book, which accompanies an exhibition at the Holburne Museum (24/09/2011-04/01/2012), brings together some of Gainsborough's finest landscape oils and works on paper and examines them not through a chronological survey of his career but by looking at 'themes and variations' within his landscape oeuvre."@en ;
