Thomas Gainsborough RA FRSA (14 May 1727 (baptised) – 2 August 1788)
Was an English portrait and landscape painter, draughtsman, and printmaker.
Along with his rival Sir Joshua Reynolds, he is considered one of the most important British artists of the second half of the 18th century.He painted quickly, and the works of his maturity are characterised by a light palette and easy strokes.
Despite being a prolific portrait painter, Gainsborough gained greater satisfaction from his landscapes.He is credited (with Richard Wilson) as the originator of the 18th-century British landscape school. Gainsborough was a founding member of the Royal Academy.
Mr and Mrs William Hallett is a 1785 painting by Thomas Gainsborough in the collection of the National Gallery, London (NG 6209). It is popularly known as The Morning Walk. The painting was attacked by a man with a sharp object on 18 March 2017.
WIlliam Hallett (1764-1842) and Elizabeth Stephen (1763/4-1833) then both aged 21.
Gainsborough painted the work in the summer of 1785, shortly before the marriage of the subjects.
After Mrs Hallett's death the painting was offered for sale at Foster's in 1834, though it remained unsold.
Later the ownership was disputed. In April 1884 it was sold from the Hilliard collection to Agnew's who sold it on, eight days later, to Sir N. M. Rothschild (later Lord Rothschild).
The painting was acquired for the National Gallery in 1954, from the collection of Lord Rothschild, for £30,000, the Art Fund providing a grant of £5000 towards the purchase price.
