Excerpt from George Romney: And His Art
As the pictures of George Romney were un known to the majority of persons, the interest in him declined, and after his death his name was gradually clouded in obscurity, save in his imme diate circle of acquaintance. He had not sent his works to any of the thirty-three Royal Academy Exhibitions that had taken place during his lifetime, for reasons that will be disclosed as the story of his life is told; and when he had passed away the art world remained inert until 1817, when the British Institution borrowed three specimens of his paintings, one of which was his St. Cecilia; so that from 1772, when he last sent to a public exhibition, until 1817, the outside world had had no opportunity of Viewing his pictures; and even at this latter show they were not accessible'to everybody.
