Stran 40 - When he was silent, he was a better sitter than before ; for he assumed a countenance that did not belong to him, as though he were thinking of a frontispiece for
Stran 90 - I painted, and left a number of pictures ; among these were halflength portraits 'of my friend Mr. Coleridge, and my medical friend, Mr. King, of Clifton. I have painted but few portraits, and these I think are my best.
Stran 155 - ... their principles my own ; for these which have stood best the criticism of ages, are produced on principles of truth, and on no abstract notion of the sublime or beautiful.

His well-known
Stran 226 - It was not until I had run through all the galleries and studios of Rome, and had under my eye the genial forms of Italy, that I began to feel Nature's value. I had before adored her, but as a Persian does the sun, with my face to the ground.
Stran 282 - Bread a little of the latest in a strange land. His name is Bridges and his Profession Painting, and if you have any employment for him in that way he will be proud of obeying your command. He has drawn my children and several others in this neighbourhood, and tho...
