Letter from Sir Charles Eastlake to Ralph N Wornum
|Date||28 Mar 1859|
Relating to receipt for Crivelli [The Vision of the Blessed Gabriel, NG668]. Also regarding a complaint made to Christies that "the National Gallery people had endeavoured to depreciate" a picture by Reynolds. Eastlake recommends Wornum to "be very cautious in expressing opinions ... as they are sure to be repeated with exaggerations". Also notes that Pinti will attend to varnishing the 'Zoppo' [Francesco del Cossa, 'St Vincent Ferrara', NG597].
