"Our Library Table." Athenaeum 1345 (6 Aug. 1853), 943.


A Letter on Pre- and Post-Raffaelism. By Edward Hopley.–Mr. Hopley has stated the common sense of the principle of Pre-Raffaelism–though without novelty of view or much force of remark. Novelty, indeed, is not neede on such a subject. Most readers, we imagine, will agree with him that the moral of a picture must necessarily suffer when struggling against "irrestistible littleness and indubitable cobwebs and caterpillars."
