Reimagining the rooms artists worked in during Gainsborough's era.

The precursor to the purpose built studio, a painting room was a space set up by an artist, often within a domestic home. This exhibition reveals how they were able to utilise such rooms – not only as a practical space for production – but also for the display and sale of their work.
