Thomas Gainsborough

Thomas Gainsborough was baptised on this day in 1727. The Museum of Fine Arts has several of his works in its collection, including this one titled, "Haymaker and Sleeping Girl," which is found in the Ruth and Carl J. Shapiro Gallery:

Courtesy MFA.

If you'd like to take a trip to the MFA to see the painting, please borrow our library pass, which was donated by the Friends of the Library of Windham (FLOW). You can call 432-7154 to reserve the pass, or you may make your reservation online. Click here to get started. The real painting is more than seven feet high and nearly five feet wide! If seeing the piece here moves you, imagine what seeing it in person would do!

You can borrow The World of Gainsborough, 1727-1788 by Jonathan Norton Leonard [759.2 LEO], to view more of the artist's work.
