Elizabeth and Thomas Linley

Oil on canvas
Acquired by Sterling and Francine Clark, 1943

  "Gainsborough is a kind of magician, and I've always liked a bit of magic. The way he painted Thomas Linley's chin, for example, . . . it's as if he's arrived at the line of the face not by painting the flesh, but by painting the shadow beside it. It's not flashy or anything, it's just a really clever bit of paint."
