Portrait of actress Sarah Siddons by Thomas Gainsborough

Gainsborough portrayed the actress in a modern dress in a white and blue stripes, in a huge hat with feathers and a fur clutch on her knees.

Sarah Siddons seemed to glance briefly into the artist’s studio and sat down to talk with him. The face of the actress did not differ in the fineness of the features, on the contrary, while working on the portrait the painter grumbled: “Madame, your nose just has no end.” And yet, we have a proud and attractive profile.

The image of the actress conquers the inner strength inherent in an extraordinary personality.
