Stephens, Fredric G[eorge]. "Cheap Art." Macmillan’s Magazine 1 (Nov. 1859), 46-54.

excerpt

Every artist who has had to trust his work to the hands of English wood-cutters has been made to feel bitterly the want of education in the respect they suffer under, and can corroborate our statements. But for the state of the case we might have to choose our illustration of what has been done in the way of cheap reproductions of noble works of art from amongst the labours of our best English painters, where such men’s names as Holman Hunt, Millais, Maclise, and Leslie, might receive honour on every cottage wall.
