Gainsborough in Bath by Susan Sloman
Book DescriptionDrawing on documents and a variety of little-known contemporary published sources, the book seeks to illuminate artistic activity in Bath, and Gainsborough's part in it. Sloman describes the supporting players in the artist's career, including his banker, patrons, suppliers, wine merchant, tailor and other artists and writers, and considers how Gainsborough's place in the commercial life of the town influenced his portrait practice and the evolution of his personal style. The work also explores how his family life regularly impinged on his professional career and how his wife's relationship with the dukes of Beaufort influenced the patronage he enjoyed and his friendship with members of the Price family. Sloman reveals how Gainsborough's prominence as an artist and Bath's as a cultural hub were intimately connected during the middle years of the 18th century, a period during which the artist and his town flourished together.
