    We are delighted to offer members a talk at The National Portrait Gallery about Thomas Gainsborough’s career, from youth to maturity which tells the story of an 18th century provincial artist’s rise to metropolitan fame and fortune.

    Tickets cost £25 per person

    After the talk there is an opportunity to view the exhibition, featuring over 50 works, including some that have never been on public display in the UK before and offers a unique insight in the private life and motivations of one of Britain’s greatest artist.

    Gainsborough, King George III’s drawing master, was reported to have given Queen Charlotte drawing lessons, during the then fashionable rage for his eccentric style. She also owned a number of his landscape drawings.

    Gainsborough often visited his friend Joshua Kirby, who had been appointed Clerk of Works to George III, staying at no.25 Kew Green and chose to be buried in a modest tomb in St Anne’s churchyard.

    The National Portrait Gallery offers step-free access via the shop entrance on St Martin’s Place and a ramp at the Orange Street entrance. The lecture theatre is also wheelchair accessible. However, the nearest underground stations of Leicester Square and the Embankment do not have lifts.
