"See no. 192. Seymour J. Guy, in 'See Saw, Margery Daw,' has exquisitely portrayed an incident of home-life, under a candle-light effect. A mother is playing with her half-dressed infant, and a child stands beside them with interested expression. As a color composition the picture is exceptionally fine, the gradations being expressed with marvelous subtlety and truthfulness. - the Art Union, April, 1884." [P. 50; see serial 03860192 for commentary on artist. Under illustration appears the annotation: "from National Academy Notes, 1884."]
