Full Text
Sir James Dromgole Linton (1840-1916), painter, watercolourist and lithographer, laments that Wilson 'in spite of the constant exhibition of his works in the National and other Galleries, is almost as unappreciated today as he was in his lifetime.' (p. 24). After speculating on the causes he comments that 'Wilson's noble design, reticent but beautiful colour, masterly execution, and love of nature will some day receive wider appreciation, and these fine qualities will yet raise him to the high place in public favour which he so eminently deserves.' (p. 30)
