According to the Maas Gallery site, “The critic of The Graphic wrote: ‘No one can paint a cottage interior better, or people it with more natural or picturesque figures, elevated by a certain poetry. His pictures are never slovenly or inharmonious, though they do not read the microscopic truth that is so dear to the pre-Raphaelite’ (30 April 1870).
