About the painting: The Blue Boy, 1770. Thomas Gainsborough (British, 1727-88). Oil on canvas.
The best known painting at The Huntington, Gainsborough's Blue Boy, was executed during Gainsborough's extended stay in Bath before he finally settled in London in 1774.
The artist has dressed the young man in a costume dating from about 140 years before the portrait was painted. This type of costume was familiar through the portraits of the great Flemish painter, Anthony van Dyck (1559-1641), who was resident in England during the early 17th century.
