Rossetti, William M. "The King Street Galleries." Academy (May 6, 1876): 209. Web. 21 Sept. 2011.


Rossetti cites this as more of a dealer show, or a speculator's market rather than a true art show and in fact, he believes the works displayed are at the artists' own risk, and most of them at level typical of such dealer's stock.

He briefly notes works that he feels deserve mention, included Pinwell and Davis. The remainder of the article is simply mentions of names of works and artists on display, most of which he finds to be of little merit.
