❧OPINIONS OF THE PRESS.
The Times.—‘There need be no hesitation in pronouncing this work
of Muther the most authoritative that exists on the subject, the most
complete, the best informed of all the general histories of Modern Art.’
The Times (second notice).—‘Not only the best, but the only history
of Modern Painting which has any pretension to cover the whole
The Daily News.—‘A monumental work . . . of cyclopaedic
value. . . . This author is distinctly cheering. He has no slavish
and indiscriminate admiration for the old masters, and his enthusiasm
and his hopes are with the art of his time. . . . There are many
illustrations, a copious bibliography, and a good index. . . . It is in-
comparably the best work of its kind; in some respects, the only one
of its kind.’
The Standard.—‘A writer with something of a writer’s charm.’
The Speaker.—‘Professor Muther has a pleasant faculty of rapid
and telling characterisation, hitting off the salient features of the various
artists and schools of art in a few deft strokes.’
The Scotsman.—‘A book of substantial value, both as a work of
reference and as a large and clearly outlined review of the century’s
The Saturday Review.—‘A history as crowded and as stirring as
The Graphic.—‘A great book on a great subject.’
The Magazine of Art.—‘Thoroughly popular in tone—popular in
the best sense, to the point of attracting by its inherent interest the
The Studio.—‘Not merely readable, but at times fascinating. . . .
The book, although not an exhaustive record, is indispensable for one’s
shelves of reference and worth careful reading.’
The Glasgow Herald.—‘The text is profusely illustrated with
portraits and reproductions of pictures. They deserve, as a rule, high
praise. The book is handsomely got up.’
A Specimen will be sent on application to the Publishers.

❧The Academy.—‘The novel of the season.’
The Mormng Post.—‘It comes as a relief, in a long experience of
novel-reading, to be able to say of a book that it is from beginning to
end clever. . . . Never did an author create a more fantastic
mixture of wit, malice, subtlety, and tenderness than in the sketch of
this delightful child [Althea Flodden]. Mr, Jepson’s dialogues are
usually above the average, neat, well turned, and incisive. He wages a
bitter but amusing war with the purity or prudery crusaders, typified in
the neglectful mother, Lady Hammersmith, and her not steadfastly
