As reported by the BBC (17 November 2017). . .

The latest plans for an £8.5m centre to commemorate a world-renowned artist have been revealed. Gainsborough’s House wants to redevelop a former labour exchange building at the rear of its existing museum in the centre of Sudbury, Suffolk. The plans include a gallery showing the best of Thomas Gainsborough’s full-length portraits.
