Thomas Gainsborough was a British portrait and landscape painter. He was born in Suffolk, but moved to London in 1740 to study art. He was one of the earliest members of the Royal Society of Arts and submitted works to the Royal Academy's annual exhibitions. His works attracted attention as his portrait subjects were usually well-known people. In 1780, he painted King George III and the queen, which led to his recieving many royal commissions.
