Archive reference number



Stating that the small Guido Reni [The Coronation of the Virgin, NG214?] is on copper not wood. Eastlake also expresses his dislike of a painting by Lambert Lombard [The Deposition from the Cross NG266], "a more detestable picture and one less worthy of a National Gallery can hardly be imagined". He suggests, as a trustee, that there is little point putting any more than the minimum about it in the catalogue.
