Inspired by the recent identification of a third autograph version of the masterpiece The Cottage Door, Hugh Belsey examines the significance of Thomas Gainsborough revisiting certain compositions in the 1780s, his final years. The former curator of Gainsborough's House in Sudbury and the leading authority on his work, Belsey shows how Gainsborough's subjects became more personal after he retired from the Royal Academy, and included more landscapes and coastal scenes. Belsey also explores works like Mrs. Sheridan, Mr. and Mrs. Andrews, and Diana and Acteon, seen here among some 50 color reproductions, detail views, and X-ray scans that reveal hidden elements.
