Black-and-White Exhibition, second notice.
Rossetti, William M. "The Black and White Exhibition." Academy (July 1, 1876): 217. Web. 21 Sept. 2011.
Rossetti promises to conclude his critique of the exhibition "without pausing much upon individual works," but the first thing he does is discuss Richmond's "Hercules" in detail, including the design, intent, execution, effect, and comparative merit. Also, Rossetti's close associate from his Cheyne Walk home, Alphonse Legros, is credited with a fine drawing.
That's followed with a more brief, less detailed critique of multiple works, followed by a denser section of mostly just mention of names and works. This comprises his consideration of Drawings and Etchings from the exhibition.
