This is a short notice describing the collection of seventy-six paintings by water colorists David Cox and Peter De Wint on display at the Burlington Club. Rossetti makes qualitative and quantitative comments regarding the paintings of Cox, mostly, with favorable appraisals and a comparison of his work to that of Turner. There is less commentary regarding De Wint but most of it is favorable as well, including the comment that De Wint is "a very leading example of high and uniform finish" in one instance.
Standards of Judgment:
"very roughly executed in a certain sense;" "exceptionally fine specimens;" "a fine collection of water-colours."
