Painter Thomas Gainsborough was born in Sudbury, England, on May 14, 1727, and studied with French artists during his adolescence. Though quite fond of landscape painting, leaving work that would influence future generations, Gainsborough took to creating beautiful, distinctive portraiture to earn income.
