I Me Mine Portrait Thomas Gainsborough

Mr and Mrs Andrews 1748-49

Thomas Gainsborough (christened 14 May 1727 – died 2 August 1788) was one of the most famous portrait and landscape painters of 18th century Britain

I Me Mine This is a portrait of Mr and Mrs Andrews. They are wearing their finest clothing, with their finest hunting dog and an expensive hunting gun. The Andrews own all the estate land that we can see in this painting. So this is a perfect example of I Me Mine
