Letter from Sir Charles Eastlake to Ralph N Wornum

Date 8 Sep 1859

Venice. Relating to the arrangement, cleaning and glazing of the Girolamo Romanino [The Nativity, NG297], "I insist on the Romanino having a little more tone". He includes detailed instructions on the methodology of glazing and says "I am obliged to enter into all this again because of your again trying to unsettle what I had directed". He also includes comments about the hanging of Claudes and Turners and suggests that they be moved to South Kensington. Also comments on a Ghirlandaio and a Marco Zoppo found in the Manfrin Gallery.
