Excerpt from The Studio, Vol. 59: An Illustrated Magazine of Fine and Applied Art; June 14, 1913
After all, criticism in the long run is a very personal matter; and an artist has much upon his side if he complain that he works neither for A nor for B nor for C, but for himsel... f and anyone who comes along to understand what he is driving at. Mr. Brangwyn is, I think, an artist of this sort: he makes a personal appeal: you take him or you leave him: and the consequence is that his work provokes an individual sentiment of pleasure or dislike that gives to either feeling some thing of added strength and value, and shames one out of the ordinary stock-in trade banalities of praise or blame.
