correct the attribution of the painting "Autumn Leaves" to Ford Madox-Brown.
Rossetti, William M. "'Autumn Leaves' and Ford Madox-Brown." Athenaeum (1905): 472. Web. 21 September 2011.
Rossetti asserts that his personal knowledge of Ford Madox-Brown, having been his son-in-law and having known him for years, leaves no doubt in his mind that Madox-Brown did not paint the work entitled "Autumn Leaves" and further, information published in the Athenaeum regarding Madox-Brown's background was incorrect as well.
Rossetti discusses the mark of Pre-Raphaelitism clear in Madox-Brown's work. He notes the Longmann biography of Ford Madox-Brown lists no such work.
