Family portraits are a constant presence in modern life. Foreshadowing this, Thomas Gainsborough was the first British artist to make a regular practice of painting and drawing himself and his family members. Comprising of some of his best loved works, this exhibition will explore how these portraits not only expressed his affections but also helped advance his career.

Featuring over fifty works from across the world, some of which have never been on display before, Gainsborough’s Family Album charts his career from youth to maturity, telling the story of an eighteenth-century provincial artist’s rise to metropolitan fame and fortune.
