Excerpt from British Galleries of Painting and Sculpture: Comprising a General Historical and Critical Catalogue, With Separate Notices of Every Work of Fine Art in the Principal Collections

The establishment of the Royal Academy, nu der the parental care of our late illustrious and revered Monarch, first broke the trammels of pre judice; and from that time to the present period, under the auspices of our munificent reigning King, whose fine taste and liberal encourage ment of the arts must ever shed a lustre round his name brighter far than the most costly jewel in his diadem, have we continued to increase in dignity and importance until the mighty efforts of succeeding genius have not only equalled the Artists Of the Flemish, Italian, and French schools, but in originality, truth Of drawing, natural colour ing, and felicity of composition, have eclipsed them all; nor have the efforts of the Sculptor been less successful: the application of his art naturally confines it within a narrower space, but it islthe boast of Genius to rise superior to local di i culties, and we may now' proudly point to the works of British Sculptors which adorn our pub lic places and cathedrals, and challenge competi tion with the world.
