About this painting

Thomas Gainsborough
Mr and Mrs Andrews, about 1750
Oil on canvas, 69.8 x 119.4 cm
© The National Gallery, London, Bought with contributions from The Pilgrim Trust, The Art Fund, Associated Television Ltd, and Mr and Mrs W. W. Spooner, 1960
NG6301

This portrait is the masterpiece of Gainsborough's early years. The original painting hung in the gallery was painted after his return home from London to Suffolk in 1748, soon after the marriage of Robert Andrews of the Auberies and Frances Carter of Ballingdon House, near Sudbury in November of that year.

The painting follows the fashionable convention of the conversation piece, a (usually) small-scale portrait showing two or more people, often out of doors. The emphasis on the landscape here allows Gainsborough to display his skills as a painter of convincingly changing weather and naturalistic scenery, still a novelty at this time.
