Letter from Charles Eastlake to R.N. Wornum

Date 22 Oct 1860

From Paris: Eastlake will go to Louvain to see the Van den Schrich Gallery which is to be sold, then perhaps to Holland to see a collection, and then to London. He gives his opinion on the new picture hang and his theory on picture hanging. He has heard that the Count de Moray has bought the Berlin Hobbema.
