Rossetti, W[illia]m M[ichael]. "Art-News from England.–No. 4." Crayon 1 (25 Jul. 1855), 52-53.


The last-named sculptor [Alexander Munro] has now opened a class for modelling at the Working Men’s College, whose Art-section is already served by Ruskin, Lowes Dickinson, and Dante Rossetti, and has produced rapid results from sure foundations, such as make its management worthy of a word in an Art-summary. The modelling-class receives, as well as Munro’s, the teaching of Thomas Woolner–a man than whom none more qualified could have been discovered, and a sculptor of genius–as people are to find out some day, I imagine.

Wm. M. Rossetti
