This gobelin depicts, what is perhaps Thomas Gainsborough's most famous work, painted in 1770. One of the stories has it that "The Blue Boy" was a portrait of Jonathan Buttall (1752–1805), the son of a wealthy hardware merchant, wearing traditional for the age of the Renaissance boy's attire. Gainsborough painted this picture in reply to his rival Sir Joshua Reynolds, who had a belief that for a picture to be in a harmony and catch the eye, it should be in warm colors and to never allow cold colors such as blue, grey, green and black to take substancial part in a painting. Obviously "The Blue Boy" refutes this statement. In fact, this painting was such an inspiration, that the German film producer Friedrich Wilhelm Murnau created his debut motion picture "Knabe in Blau" (Boy in Blue) in 1919. Currently the painting itself is located in Henry E. Huntington Art Gallery in San Marino, California, USA.
