Messrs. Sampson Low, Marston & Co. issue the sixth part of Artists at Home, which brings the volume of this unique work to a close. The subjects of the present biographical sketches and illustrations are Mr. Poynter, the Academician; Mr. Barlow, the engraver; Mr. Storey, who, after beginning with the study of mathematics and architecture, settled down to the easel; Mr. Macbeth, the eminent Scottish painter; and honoris causa, as Professor of Ancient History in the Royal Academy, the Rt. Hon. W. E. Gladstone. The six numbers of Artists at Home will form a choice and interesting table-book, and the success with which Mr. Mayall has been able to set before us the eminent men and their home surroundings by his photo-engraving process has been complete. The idea was essentially “a happy thought,” and its execution has been a genuine success.
