A Response to a Rival

Did you know that Thomas Gainsborough painted ‘The Blue Boy’ as a response to his rival Sir Joshua Reynolds?

Reynolds had written: “It ought, in my opinion, to be indispensably observed, that the masses of light in a picture be always of a warm, mellow colour, yellow, red, or a yellowish white, and that the blue, the grey, or the green colours be kept almost entirely out of these masses, and be used only to support or set off these warm colours; and for this purpose, a small proportion of cold colour will be sufficient.” 46 more words
