Caption title (p. 15).
First major loan exhibition dedicated to a deceased British artist.
"... its chief object is to call attention generally to British, in preference to foreign art, and to oppose the genuine excellence of modern, to the counterfeited semblance of ancient productions, which too frequently usurp its place; and, under the authority of names deservedly venerable, absorb that wealth and patronage, which fought to foster and protect the British School"--p. 9.
Preface by Richard Payne Knight.
In original wrappers; stitched, as issued.
