Letter from Sir Charles Eastlake to Ralph N Wornum
|Date||1 Jan 1858|
Relating to the despatch of the Lombardi pictures. Also comments about the dating of the Fra Filippo Lippi picture [The Annunciation, NG666]. "If the National Gallery Catalogue is good for anything it is valuable for the correctness of its facts and for avoiding the loose statements which are common in foreign works of the kind. One such arbitrary assertion or rather false assertion (as regards Vasari) would be enough, with cursory readers to condemn the book."
