Greetings ArtConversation Members,
Gainsborough's Pink Boy is one of the works presented in the e-Learning resource - Portraits and Portraiture from the Museum Network UK.
Using five museum collections, teachers and pupils can find out more about the fascinating subject of portraiture, including how portraits were created, how to strike a commanding pose, how to tell someone’s status from their dress and the formal elements that go into making someone’s likeness.
This resource compares portraits in the following five museum collections:
The Bowes Museum in Barnard Castle, County Durham
Compton Verney in Warwickshire
The Holburne Museum of Art in Bath
Waddesdon Manor in Buckinghamshire
The Wallace Collection in Central London
Here is the page for Pink Boy:
Enjoy this resource.
