With James Hamilton

Overview

This exhilarating new biography reveals Thomas Gainsborough (1727-1788), in his many contexts: the easy-going Suffolk lad, transported to the heights of fashion by a natural talent; the rake-on-the-make in London, learning his art in the shadow of Hogarth; falling on his feet when he married a duke's daughter with a handsome private income; the top societyportrait painter in Bath and London who earned huge sums by bringing the right people into his studio and the charming and amusing friend of George III.

James Hamilton's books include Turner: A Life and Making Art and Money in Nineteenth Century Britain, which was the 2014 Sunday Times Art Book of the Year.

LUNCH: Creamy chicken with sautéed mushrooms, seasonal vegetables and mash potato; chocolate tart with vanilla chantilly; coffee V: Vegetable Wellington with mustard mash and root vegetables
