Excerpt from Beautiful Children: Immortalised by the Masters

It would ill become pen of mine to let this volume go forth without paying tribute to the generous help that has gone to the making of its chief claim to merit. To Lord Spencer, Lord Crewe, Lord Durham, and Lord Lucas the debt is heavy for the handsome way in which they have placed their treasure at the service of these pages. To the courtesy of the Keepers of the State collections of the National Gallery, the National Portrait Gallery, the Diploma Gallery, the Wallace Collection, and the Tate - of the Louvre and at Versailles - in Vienna, in Berlin, at Munich, at Turin, in Amsterdam, and at the Prado, also my thanks. To Mr. Martin Hardie at South Kensington I owe much goodwill and generous assistance. But above all I am bound to acknowledge my debt to my friend T. Leman Hare, to whose conception all that is best in the book is due, and without whose enterprise it would never have been completed.

It is always my aim, since the exact illustration of photography gives so well the main idea of pictures, to write concerning such pictures, as an aid to the full understanding of them, the history of their makers and sitters and their relation to the age that bred them, rather than to attempt an ?sthetic estimate of their artistry, which can appeal at best to the few; the more particularly as the few will gain a really true estimate of their artistic value only by close study of the originals.
