Excerpt from A Catalogue Raisonné of the Works of the Most Eminent Dutch, Flemish, and French Painters, Vol. 4: In Which Is Included a Short Biographical Notice of the Artists, With a Copious Description of Their Principal Pictures; A Statement of the Prices at Which Such Pictures Have Been Sold at Public Sales on the Continent and in England
In addition to the valuable enlargement of the work from this permission, will be given the accumulated information of the past year, derived from attendance at public sales, and from private researches in England, and on the continent.
A desire for the preservation of works of art, compel the Writer to use every means in his power to prevent the ravages, which the mania for cleaning, and what is called restoring, is making among fine pictures.
Although this subject has been noticed in the general Introduction to the work, he thinks that it cannot be too often repeated nor can possessors of fine pictures be too fully impressed with the necessity of preserving them from injury, if they have a regard for the art, and really estimate what they possess.
