Excerpt from Legends of the Monastic Orders as Represented in the Fine Arts: Forming the Second Series of Sacred and Legendary Art
This was the object I had in view, knowing that, doing my best, I could do no more nor better than make the first step in a new direction. No one can feel more strongly than myself the deficiencies of the First Series of this work. That it has met with great and unhoped-for success is no evidence of its merit; but rather a proof that it did, Opportunely, supply a want which, as I had felt myself, I thought others might feel also.
For the gentle and generous tone of criticism towards that work public and private I am deeply grateful. But, in this Second Series, I shall require even more especially the candor and forbearance of the reader.
