Exhibited: Royal Academy, 1880
Athenaeum, 1 May 1880:
… a fine view of the chapel of Edward the Confessor at Westminster, and the monument of Eleanor of Castile. The chief charm of the place was destroyed when most of the authentic surface of the ancient stone was removed, and the whole saturated with lac dissolved in spirit. The result of this deplorable blunder has been to banish the ineffably beautiful tints of time and substitute a brown, horn-like surface, which by-and-by will turn black.
