Anecdotes of Painting in England (5 vols., 1762-1771) is a work by Horace Walpole (1717 - 1797) based on George Vertue's manuscript notes. Horace Walpole purchased Vertue's notebooks after his death. Although disorderly and mainly unreflective, Walpole based his Anecdotes of Painting in England on these notes. The original wording of the manuscripts was only published in the 20th century by the Walpole Society.
