[Rossetti, William Michael]. "Fine Arts: The British Institution." Spectator 31.1547 (20 Feb. 1858), 218.


"Leaving Home" is the best of Mr. Collinson’s recent pictures; the rustic lover who trembles to offer his nosegay to the departing maid very good, and the whole careful and praiseworthy, had it but more style and greater sweetness of colour: there is a real comic spice, too, in the exacting dame and the defaulting young sinner of an urchin in "Short Change."
