The couple takes an evening stroll in Windsor Great Park, watched by Anne’s sister, Elizabeth, who carries a porte-crayon with which to record the scene. By scaling down the figures and enhancing the landscape, painted with wonderfully loose brushstrokes, Gainsborough has transformed a formal portrait into a scene from romance.
