    School of Thomas Gainsborough (1727 - 1788) ‘Portrait of Alice & Martha Andrews, in a Landscape’ Oil on canvas 59 ½ x 44¾ in. (151 x 113.6 cm.) Thomas Gainsborough (14 May 1727 (baptised) – 2 August 1788) was an English portrait and landscape painter, draughtsman, and printmaker. He surpassed his rival Sir Joshua Reynolds to become the dominant British portraitist of the second half of the 18th century. He painted quickly, and the works of his maturity are characterized by a light palette and easy strokes. He preferred landscapes to portraits, and is credited (with Richard Wilson) as the originator of the 18th-century British landscape school. Gainsborough was a founding member of the Royal Academy.

    Seymour Joseph Guy (1824 –1910) Portrait of a Lady Oil on Canvas 18 x 23 in. Seymour Joseph Guy (1824–1910), was an American romance painter. He was born and trained in London but moved to New York City where he is known for genre works. He trained for four years with the portrait painter Ambrosini Jerôme and married the daughter of an engraver, Anna Maria Barber, before his move to New York in 1854. He was a member of the Sketch club and became friends with John George Brown, and they both began to paint genre works of children, probably inspired by their own, as Guy eventually had nine. He died at his home in New York on December 10, 1910.
