Content Description

He was waiting for Lawrence's picture to arrive before writing, but still does not know where it is; Canova thinks the delay is due to the Admiral wanting to present the work in person; he thanks Lawrence for his sage advice on the style and subjects of his paintings; he discusses Ticozzi's life of Titian, muses on pigments and vehicles, citing a "picture cleaner or chymist" called Palmaroli, who Lawrence has met; he wonders if Ticozzi's work might be translated by Mrs. Graham.
