Letter from Charles Lock Eastlake to J.C. Hall.
Eastlake, Charles Lock
Two page A.L.s. from Sir Charles Eastlake to J.C. Hall, Esq., 6 January 1844, regarding payment for advertisements in the Art-Union under sanction of the Fine Arts Commission. Eastlake (1793-1865) was an artist and author known for producing the last portrait of Napoleon and "Christ Weeping over Jerusalem" (DNB VI, 330-333). Refers to bills for advertisements for May-October 1844; thus, the letter may have been written in January 1845, not 1844. The Art-Union, a monthly journal, began publication in 1839 (The New Cambridge Bibliography of English Literature III, 1846).
