Scholarly Commentary


In the the 1 June 1850 issue of The Critic, WMR reviewed the current exhibition at the Royal Academy. DGR wrote eleven individual notices that comprise portions of the longer articles written for The Critic by WMR. In this notice, part of WMR's 1 June review, DGR comments on two pictures exhibited by the historical painter Frederick R. Pickersgill (1820 -1900): a harsh critique of Pluto Carrying Away Proserpine, opposed by the Nymph Cyane, and a favorable notice of a watercolour, Sketches from the Story of Imelda. DGR was not acquainted with Pickersgill, who was a well-known Victorian artist and member of the R. A.

Printing History
