Wooded Landscape with Cows at a Watering Place, Figures and Cottage, c. 1785

Not on Viewexpand_more

The Minneapolis Institute of Arts owns the only known impression of this gentle aquatint. The subject is the countryside of England's East Suffolk, which painter and printmaker Thomas Gainsborough turned to repeatedly for his subject matter. The tonal printing method of aquatint allowed for a particularly painterly approach to the landscape.
