Review of paintings by Walton.
Rossetti, William M. "Paintings by Elijah Walton." Academy (March 20, 1875): 150. Web. 21 Sept. 2011.
More announcement than criticism, this notice specifies that the exhibition is an individual collection of 210 works, something Rossetti seldom notes or critiques. He mentions Walton's talent and ability, particularly in the painting of Alpine scenes. Rossetti notes that Walton has "acquired far more than common proficiency" and that many of the displayed works are "beautiful and grand."
