“There is much to admire in the large and ambitious study of a finely-featured model in the garb of a Maenad, contributed by the Hon. J. Collier, and entitled "A Priestess of Bacchus." The work reveals the painter's usual care in the elaboration of form, with considerable skill in the treatment of light; though it has a certain lack of conception and aspect which somehow causes one to rate it lower than it deserves” (111).
