  • This is a very rare example of an offset drawing from Gainsborough’s hand, made by pressing a finished drawing onto a damp sheet of paper to create a reverse impression of the original. The theme of the cottage door, that is, a landscape depicting the economy of the small, self-sufficient rustic cottage, was one that he repeatedly explored in the 1780s. In this example Gainsborough’s experience with aquatint and soft-ground etching allowed him to blur the boundaries between drawing and print.
