Excerpt from The Irish Quarterly Review, 1853, Vol. 3
Mr. Weekes does not, however, advocate a mere literal copying of costume, as if the statue was to commemorate the dress and not the man. He shows the necessity of select ing and arranging judiciously - that a great deal of modern costume, even to the every day street dress, presents excellent and graceful forms under skilful treatment; and we entirely concur in the remarks thrown out, that an artist of right feeling finds no great difficulty in this, though perhaps no thing serves so much to distinguish his works from that of inferior men, as due attention in this particular. It reminds us of Sir Joshua Beynolds' remark, that rules are fetters only to the man of no genius we have ever found the incapables ready to shelter themselves behind the difficulty of making anything effective out of the stiff modern costume.
The chapter descriptive of the materials and processes used in the Fine Arts will prove highly entertaining, as well as ia structive, to many readers, because, unless amongst the artistic class, very little 18 known of the modue It will also show how little change there has been or is likely to be.
