Gainsborough collected and was inspired by Dutch landscape painting.
In a sketchy manner, Gainsborough convincingly singled out the various elements comprising this sweeping landscape—meadow, rocks, trees—by only slightly varying colors and brushstrokes. At the same time, however, a great sense of unity prevails. Although the bulk of Gainsborough's artistic output was portraits, he insisted that landscape was his first love.
