swer them. The late king appreciated painting and music with a
real feeling of what was excellent in both. Handel was his favou.
rite musician, and it will be remembered (to his honour) that for

no commission from any other person.
Of the disposition of his present Majesty to encourage whatever
is connected with the dignity and honour of the country it would be
superfluous to speak : the Royal Academy contains munificent proofs
of his liberality to the arts. The sense of the legislature too has
been distinctly pronounced by the purchase of the Elgin Marbles,
an act of which the wisdom is becoming every day more and more
evident. Many foreigners have already come into his island solely
for the purpose of seeing these marbles. Casts from the whole col-
lection have been already sent to Bavaria, to Wirtenberg, to Russia :
others have been ordered for Florence. The school of sculpture
will soon be in England. We have seen in our own exhibition the
work of Canova beside that of an Englishman, and England might
well be satisfied with the excellence to which her native artist had
attained. That national encouragement is asked for painting which
sculpture already receives: and when that encouragement is given,
England will assert and win for herself as high a pre-eminence in art
as she holds at this time in commerce, in science, in literature and
