Letter from Sir Frederick Burton to Ralph N Wornum
|Date||3 Jun 1876|
Milan. Relating to the acquisition of pictures [by Giovanni Battista Moroni NG1022, NG1023, NG1024, and by Il Moretto NG1025] from the Baslini Collection and the difficulties involved in getting them out of Italy. "The pictures are indescribably fine and in the most wonderful condition and we shall have got them for a price far below their value - I should hardly hesitate to say they would fetch double the sum... they will be a splendid addition at the re-opening if we get them". Also mentions a meeting with Layard who admired the pictures.
