Excerpt from Artists of the Nineteenth Century and Their Works: A Handbook Containing Two Thousand and Fifty Biographical Sketches
It is almost needless to say that in writing of what belongs to the present time it is impossible to avoid more or less inaccuracy. In some cases artists have not done themselves justice in what they have said of their works, while in other instances, doubt less, an undue enthusiasm has tinged the statements made. In printed authorities, too, upon current events, one is not able to insure correctness in the same degree as in writing of things in the past.
A large proportion of the critical quotations we have trans lated for this purpose, and an immense number of catalogues of exhibitions and museums have been used in addition to the books named in the list of authorities consulted.
In the critiques we have endeavored to give an average opinion.
