Dudley Gallery, second notice.
Rossetti, William M. "The Dudley Gallery." Academy (February 24, 1877): 170. Web. 21 Sept. 2011.
Rossetti states that the "more important" works have already been discussed in his first notice, and therefore that "we shall not dwell in any great detail on the remaining works." He discusses Figure-Subjects with only brief comments and no real critical analysis beyond brief observations.
To conclude Figure-Subjects, Rossetti mentions dozens of paintings, then turns to landscapes with a similarly dense listing of mentions with only occasional, brief comment. He concludes with mentions only of names and works for the remainder and for Animals-Flowers as well.
