Gainsborough's London years 1774 to 1788, were the pinnacle and conclusion of his career coinciding with the establishment of the Royal Academy, of which Gainsborough was a founding member. This book accounts of how Gainsborough made a place for himself in the art world of late-18th-century London.

This is a particularly relevant event as Gainsborough specifically chose to be buried at St Anne's Church Kew, and Friends of St Anne's were paramount in the restoration of his tomb.
