In Blue Boy a flea market encounter with a long-forgotten image of Thomas Gainsborough’s painting The Blue Boy and its counterpart Thomas Lawrence’s Pinkie, led me to discover the many variations of these images found in such diverse forms as needlepoints, paintings, bed and breakfast room themes, Garbage Pail Kids cards, Marlene Dietrich in costume, ceramic figurines, Kermit the Frog and so on.
