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. Rear elevation in pencil and watercolour. Part of the permanent collection Gainsborough’s House Sudbury.

"Pete has been providing the artist’s illustrations for our diverse range of developments since 1993. His reliability, attention to detail and ability to capture the vision we have of our buildings mean that we wouldn’t think of using anyone else."
