The catalogue lists 1,032 paintings organized by subject: Portraits, Fancy Pictures, Pictures of Animals, Landscapes, and Copies After the Old Masters.
Comprehensive catalogue of all of Gainsborough's oil paintings known to the author. Much of this catalogue was previously included in Waterhouse's article, "A Preliminary Checklist of Portraits by Thomas Gainsborough" in vol. 33 of 'The Walpole Society' (1953). A second edition of the catalogue was issued by Spring Books in 1966. A catalogue raisonné of Gainsborough's portraits is currently in preparation (see in-process entry cited in this database).
