Eastlake, Charles Lock, Sir, 1793-1865
Found in 13 Collections and/or Records:
Marked "Private." Eastlake informs Redgrave that the commissioners have met to discuss a drawing he has submitted to them. The composition, he writes, has been approved but the commission wishes Redgrave to alter the figure of the Prince. The commission finds fault in the position of the sword and the figure's stance. Although Eastlake does not yet write in an official capacity, he wishes Redgrave to know of these changes ahead of time so that he can gain a head start on the corrections.
"My dear Sir, In reply to your note of this date I beg pray that I shall be happy to attend at Marlborough House on Thursday next at or soon after 10 o'clock. Mr Maclise [Daniel Maclise] whom I have contacted will be very happy to meet me there at that time. I remain my dear sir, yours faithfully, C.L. Eastlake."
"My Dear Sir, I beg to acknowledge the receipt of your letter dated the 11th last with its inclosure. I have replied to the letter form Mr. Wightman, the Hon. Secy of the Sheffield School of last saying that I shall be prepared to act in conjunction with you & Mr Maclise as soon as Iearn that the works to which the premiums are to be adjudged at Marlbro' House. I remain my dear Sir, yours faithfully, C.L. Eastlake."
"My dear Sir, I read part of your letter which I received yesterday from Mrs Merrifield, of Dorset Gardens, Brighton. Forgive what she says about a request coming from the P.R.A. and adjust [?] her if you can. I am very sorry to add to your many correspondents on business matters but a word form you to an intelligent clerk will I hope suffice. Faithfully yours, C.L. Eastlake."
"My Dear Sir, I have seen Mr Maclise and find that he will be ready to attend tomorrow with me at Gore House if the works are sufficiently arranged for us to begin our examination & above all if it suits your convenience to meet us. Be so good as to let me have an answer by bearer - or if not at home some time today. I will take care to inform Mr Maclise in time. I remain, My dear Sir, Yours faithfully, C.L. Eastlake."
"My dear Sir, I had already intended to propose that the Academy, as a Body, should subscribe to the memorial to the Prince. The amount can be considered in due time. I am glad you have thought of it & I trust there will be no difference of opinion on such a subject. I am happy to find that we shall have the pleasure of your company on the 29th. Faithfully yours, C.L. Eastlake."
"My Dear Sir, I had better not have troubled you to send the paintings from statues to the academy - the sculptors on the council, not understanding the foreshortenings, abused the works as below criticism & the painters had nothing to say in their favour except out of politeness to me. So ends this episode. The works are left to be sent for by the Department, & again I regret having given you needless trouble. Yours faithfully, C.L. Eastlake."
