Horace Walpole is maybe a bit early for you?

>From a letter to the Rev. Mr. Cole, December 1775:
"I had not heard of the painting you tell me of.  As those boobies, the 
Society of Antiquaries, have gotten hold of it, I wonder their piety did not 
make them bury it again, as they did the clothes of Edward I."

Until the sky falls on our heads...
