Exhibition of The Water Colour Institute, December 1875.
Rossetti, William M. "The Water-Colour Institute." The Academy (1875): 188. Web. 21 Sept. 2011.
This is an uncharacteristically positive review for Rossetti, but it becomes clear that the exceptional works he discusses conform to his pre-Raphaelite school norms when Rossetti mentions that the seemingly most accomplished work in the exhibition had "something of Mr. Dante Rossetti," or perhaps a fusion between Leighton, Burne-Jones and Solomon. He focuses the majority of the critique on four artists and their works, examining their design, intent and success as art works.
A smaller space is reserved for less accomplished works and a second notice is promised to discuss landscapes and other pieces.
