The Exhibition "Thomas Gainsborough"
The Thomas Gainsborough exhibition will acquaint visitors with the oeuvre of this outstanding painter, one of the founders of the 18th century British artistic school, the favorite artist of King George III, and the most prominent and unique representative of the era that transformed the world of British art. The exhibition will feature about 100 art pieces from 11 leading British museums, as well as from collections of the Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts and the State Hermitage Museum. Unique exhibits from the UK include the ceremonial portrait “Mrs. Elizabeth Moody with her sons Samuel and Thomas,” the last large-scale landscape of the master “The Market Wagon,” and landscapes on glass which are almost never exhibited abroad.
