Thomas Gainsborough, The Painter’s Daughters with a Cat, c.1760-61, oil on canvas, The National Gallery Here are Mary and Margaret Gainsborough, aged between 9 and 10, and 8 and 9 respectively. The somewhat vicious-looking cat, referenced in the painting’s title, has been left unfinished.   Here they are again, those gorgeous little girls.  How lovely he sees them.
