Scholarly Commentary


While WMR was away, DGR agreed to write this and another review for his brother's art review column in The Spectator. He was quite unhappy about having to comment extensively on “that blackguard exposure at Lichfield house”, especially as he was not well at the time (see his letter to WMR of 25 August 1851, Fredeman, Correspondence, 51. 17 . The review was published on 30 August.
