Gainsborough's Family AlbumThe National Portrait Gallery brings together all surviving portraits of Thomas Gainsborough's daughters for the first time for its major new exhibition, Gainsborough's Family Album. The exhibition will showcase the twelve portraits, which feature the Gainsborough girls as young children right through to fashionable adults. Items such as The Artists Daughters chasing a Butterfly and The Artists Daughters with a Catwill go on display alongside other rarely seen paintings, including the double full-length of Mary and Margaret Gainsborough as sumptuously dressed young women, and some never before seen in the UK such as an early portrait of the artist's father John Gainsborough. Despite starting out with landscapes - his preferred art form - Gainsborough went on to become one of Britain's most successful eighteenth-century portraitists and this will provide the perfect chance to admire his work.

About National Portrait Gallery

The National Portrait Gallery houses portraits of significant figures from the late 15th century to the present day. This isn't the place to come for serious works of exceptional artistic merit - the overriding aim of the National Portrait Gallery is to reflect the status of the sitter, not the artist - but where else in London could you hope to find The Beatles, Henry VIII, Sir Richard Branson and JK Rowling all hanging out together? The appeal of this gallery (opened in 1856) rests simply in its comprehensive commemoration of British history from the late 15th century to the present day through the medium of portraiture.
