Twenty-five newly attributed Thomas Gainsborough drawings will go on public display for the first time in this major exhibition opening at York Art Gallery this October.

The beautiful drawings, lent by Her Majesty The Queen from the Royal Collection, were re-attributed 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 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.

The exhibition will also showcase the UK premiere of the triptych ‘Clay, Peat, Cage’ (2015), three performances to camera by Yorkshire-based artists Jade Montserrat and Webb-Ellis.
