25 reattributed Thomas Gainsborough drawings will go on public display at York Art Gallery for the first time.

The beautiful drawings, lent by the Royal Collection, were reattributed to Gainsborough (1727 – 1788) in 2013 and transform our understanding of him as a talented landscape artist at the beginning of his career.

They will be presented alongside paintings and works on paper borrowed from collections across the UK and the Republic of Ireland, including the National Gallery’s recently conserved masterpiece Cornard Wood (1748). Together, they will shed new light on Gainsborough’s early landscape practice and the techniques which made him one of the country’s most significant and influential artists.

This exhibition is in partnership with Royal Collection Trust, the National Gallery of Ireland and Nottingham Castle Trust.
