Artist's description:

An oil on canvass study of Thomas Gainsborough's "Blue Boy".
An interesting story regarding the Gainsborough original relates that Sir Joshua Reynolds dictated to the Royal Academy in London that the main light of any portrait should be displayed in warm hues and tones and cool colours should only be used in support of warmth. In total denial of this theory, Gainsborough produced The Blue Boy with his subject being painted entirely in cool tones and it became one of the worlds most loved works of art.
All rules are there to be broken !
