Gainsborough's House February 2019
Gainsborough's House, the only artist's birthplace open to the public in Britain, was established as a museum in 1961. It shows a large collection of Gainsborough's paintings, drawings and prints as well as temporary exhibitions. Gainsborough's House is a typical example of Suffolk vernacular architecture, constructed from a timber frame with wattle and daub in-fill. The building was originally two cottages that were joined together in about 1520. A brick facade was added in the 1720s by the artist's father.
