Excerpt from Lectures on Painting and Design: Fuzeli; Wilkie; Effect of the Societies on Taste; A Competent Tribunal; On Fresco; Elgin Marbles; Beauty Never was a finer Opportunity for a series of frescoes than in the Royal Exchange, to illustrate the progress of British Commerce, from the first trading of the Phwnicians, to Hong Kong: and yet, what has been the result? Baskets of ﬂowers hanging over steam-packet announce ments; griffins and eagles; mermaids and tigers; roses, pinks, tulips, and daisies, in galvanic ecstasies of twist and twirl; full of talent, full of skill; but no more to do with a decorative illustration of the objects for which the build ing was erected, than if the ornaments had been taken from a tea-garden alcove at Bagnigge Wells.
