Gainsborough Find

This previously unknown chalk-and-gouache presentation drawing by Thomas Gainsborough for his painting Gypsy Encampment, Sunset (c.1778–80) was discovered by Bainbridges of Ruislip (Middlesex). The auction house spent a year authenticating the drawing, which has impeccable provenance from artist through to the present owner. It comes up for sale in Bainbridges auction on 2 July, estimated at £20,000 – £30,000 (CLICK). Gainsborough's oil painting is currently on display in Tate Britain. CLICK to view it online.
