Description:
Thomas Gainsborough (1727-1788) lived as if electricity shot through his sinews and crackled at his finger ends. He was a gentle and empathetic family man, but had a volatility that could lead him to slash his paintings, and a loose libidinous way of speaking, writing and behaving that shocked many deeply. In this exhilarating new biography - the first in decades - James Hamilton reveals Gainsborough in his many contexts.
