(1727-1788) A highly experimental and innovative artist, no great adherent to academic rules, is best known as one of the great portrait painters of his era, however, he also loved painting landscapes and set many of his portrait figures within gloriously scenic settings. Constable once said of Gainsborough’s paintings: "On looking at them, we find tears in our eyes and know not what brings them."

(1839–1906): Possibly the most influential artist in the history of modern painting, Cézanne inspired generations of artists. His unique method of building form with colour and his analytical approach to nature influenced the art of Cubists, Fauves, and successive generations of avant-garde artists. How does he, Cézanne do it? He cannot put two touches of colour on a canvas without its being very good.”  Pierre-Auguste Renoir (c. 1890)
