Public domain ← → Mr. and Mrs. Andrews Thomas Gainsborough Alternative name: Mr and Mrs Andrews Date: 1749 Style: Rococo Genre: portrait Media: oil, canvas Dimensions: 69.8 x 119.4 cm Location: National Gallery, London, UK Tags: double-portraits, couples Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mr_and_Mrs_Andrews File Source: commons.wikimedia.org References: en.wikipedia.org www.nationalgallery.org.uk Image dimension 750x436px, View all sizes Thomas Gainsborough was twenty-one when he painted Mr and Mrs Andrews in 1750. At that time landscape painting was far less prestigious and poorly paid compared to portraits and Gainsborough was forced (since the family business, a clothiers' in Sudbury, had been bankrupted in 1733) to "face paint" as he put it. Mr and Mrs Andrews contains the widest landscape of Gainsborough's portraits, and he would not return to such compositions. Future paintings would be set against neutral or typical rococo settings.
