Notes:
Appears in exhibition catalog as entry no. 153 (Sale info: For Sale).
Obtained one of the Prizes in the Government Competition. Where restoration should commence its work,/ It culpably neglects perverted souls--/ Their beauty marred, and ruinous within--/ To prop old fanes, to paint and gild anew/ Decaying quaintness, miscalled ornament./ Restore man first: then, stone will take true forms,/ Canvas will glow with faith, 'neath purer eyes,/ And Gothic relics turn to injured dust. [P. 15; the words "man" and "then" appear in italics in the catalogue.]
