Letter from Sir Charles Eastlake to Ralph N Wornum

Date 30 Oct 1859

Hanover. Relating to the Soder sale and the bidding for the two Ruysdaels [Landscape with Waterfall, NG627, NG628]. He also comments on works by Snyders, Fyt and Antony Mer. Eastlake mentions an unsigned Weenix which he assumes to be by von Valekenberg "but excellence requires no name ... it is however so celebrated and so admired by the vulgar that it is likely to fetch an unusual price".
