Kenilworth Castle is a rather difficult study for a young painter. Much of the extreme elegance which we imagined in its original No. 37 is rejected from 98; but we doubt whether there is a corresponding dignity gained, except in the cattle; they seem the very types of 37, only, as if being longer at grass, they are more rotund than in the elegant picture. [P. 131; see entry 02270008 for the other work mentioned.]
