“Reviews: ‘Artists at Home.’” The Derby Mercury (Derby, England), issue 8828, March 26, 1884. "The four plates in the part (No. 1) now before us represent Sir Frederic Leighton, Mr. W. C. Marshall, Mr. T. Webster, and Mr. V. C. Prinsep, in their workrooms, and in their habits as they live there. The portraits of the artists are admirable as likenesses, and the details of the studios themselves are admirably brought out."
