Girlhood of Mary Virgin notice. Morning Chronicle 24,782 (26 March 1849), 5.


. . . and there is a striking picture by G. D. Rossetti, "The Girlhood of Mary Virgin," remarkable, as the first work of a very young artist, for the feeling with which it adopts the "early religious" style, and reprehensible for the blind idolatry of the imitation. But the head of the Virgin, the background, and the general details of the picture are finely conceived and executed.
