Journals and Correspondence of Lady Eastlake 2 Volume Set: With Facsimiles of her Drawings and a Portrait by Elizabeth Eastlake

Later known as Lady Eastlake, the writer Elizabeth Rigby (1809-93) travelled widely in her early years, and subsequently moved in the highest literary and artistic circles. After an illness in 1827 she was taken abroad to recover, and her encounters with European art led to her writing career. In 1838, she travelled to Estonia and spent more than a year there, recorded in A Residence on the Shores of the Baltic (1841), also reissued in the Cambridge Library Collection. In 1849, she married the painter Charles Eastlake, who became the director of the National Gallery and president of the Royal Academy. Continuing to write, especially for the Quarterly Magazine, on literature and art, she spent part of each year touring galleries and private collections across Europe. This engaging two-volume work of 1895, edited by her nephew and full of shrewd judgements on art and on people, is compiled from her journals and letters.
