The Sunday Telegraph has published a story regarding the reattribution of several engravings which had been thought to be the work of Thomas Gainsborough. Scholar Susan Sloman has said that there are in fact the work of his nephew Gainsborough Dupont. The reasons for this are the direction of the shading, which Thomas Gainsborough would have reversed to imitate his drawings in this mirrored print format.
