520 2 # $a These essays exemplify the growing British interest in painters of the early Renaissance - Lady Callcott's appreciation of whom probably influenced the connoisseurship of her young friend Charles Eastlake. The work draws to some extent on her travels with her husband, Augustus Wall Callcott, R.A., in Germany and Italy in 1827-8, when they met the 'Nazarenes' and other groups of artists and such pioneering art-historians as the brothers Boisserée, Carlo Lasinio and G. von Dillis. The text consists of six essays: I.(on the origin of art); II. Of Art In Ancient Italy; III. Of Painting In Greece; IV. Of The Third Period Of Painting In Greece; V. Classification Of Pictures; VI. On The Materials Used By Painters. In 1838 Lady Callcott published Continuation of Essays towards the History of painting.
