Rossetti states that in considering the eleventh of this series, it is clear that the works exhibited there are and likely will be from artists who "as a class mean little, but what they mean is put before us from a reasonably artistic point of view." He says there are seven works that stand out for him, a sculpture, five figure paintings and one landscape.
He discusses each in brief comments regarding composition, technique and effect. Hemy warrants an association with Rossetti's Cheyne Walk associate Sir Edward Burne-Jones and discussion on the same level. The notice closes with an extensive section of mentions.
