Rica Jones, a retired painting conservator from Tate Britain and an expert in the artistic practice of Thomas Gainsborough, discusses details of the artist's materials and methods, providing insight into his process and technique. By tracing the history of Gainsborough's studio practice over the course of his career, as he moved from rural Sudbury and Ipswich to fashionable Bath, and finally to cosmopolitan London, Jones illuminates the artistic, historical, and technical context in which his masterpiece The Blue Boy was created.
