“Our Note Book.” The Illustrated London News 35 (July 12, 1884): 26. "The June number of “Artists at Home” contains portraits and views of the studios of G. F. Watts, R.A., W. H. Thornycroft, A.R.A., W. F. Yeames, R. A., and J. MacWhirter, A.R.A.  Considering that this is a purely artistic work, it is surprising that the artists represented have not exercised a more beneficial control over the arrangement and production of the pictures. . . ."
