Review of The Association for Promoting the Free Exhibition of Modern Art opening. The Builder 31 March 1849, 145.


No 82. "King Lear," by Ford Maddox [sic] Brown, is a very remarkable work, and entitles Mr. Brown to a high place in the list of British artists. It is full of thought, and in finish, a perfect marvel. . . . 368, "The Girlhood of Mary, Virgin" by D. G. Rossetti, is in the manner of the early school, finished with extraordinary minuteness and displaying a high tone of mind. It is one of the most noticeable pictures in the gallery.
