Summer League #18

This is a full-length portrait named “The Blue Boy” by Thomas Gainsborough, and his most famous work.

It is praised as historical costume study as well as a portrait. The youth in the portrait in his 17th- century apparel is regarded as Gainsborough’s homage to Anthony van Dyck, and resembles Van Dyck’s portrait of Charles II as a boy.

The painting has been featured in many places in pop culture, for example in the film Joker (2019) and the video game Animal Crossing: New Horizons. However, there is another place where this portrait’s inspiration is well apparent.

What occurrence in which movie, released within the past decade?
