“. . . the grand portrait of John Blight, by Holl. This is a remarkable work, both for its strength and individuality of character and its breadth of treatment; it has found an appropriate resting-place in the town with the political history of which the name of Bright will always be connected. In this portrait Mr. Holl is probably seen at his best; his subject has interested him, and it is evident that he has worked con amore” (163).
