Mr. Deschamps' Gallery, second notice.
Rossetti, William M. "Mr. Deschamp's Gallery." Academy (November 25, 1876): 528. Web. 21 Sept. 2011.
Rossetti proposes to "dispose of' figure-pieces and landscapes," in that order. He begins with Alma-Tadema, describing the work in general terms with minor comments. Mrs. Alma-Tadema and two sisters are mentioned in a later portion of the essay. Most of the works are described as they appear with only an occasional evaluative comment. PRB-school artists, including Alma-Tadema, Hubert von Herkomer, John Pettie, Macbeth and Moore receive the most mention.
It is notable that the Alma-Tademas were considered by Rossetti's to be in his inner circle of Cheyne Walk associates.
