Artist and Art Critic, by W. E, CHURCH, Secretary of the Urban Club. "Thackeray's essay on the Genius of George Cruikshank,' reprinted from the Westminster Review, is a piece of work well calculated to drive a critic of these days to degpair. How inimitable is its touch! At once familiar and elegant, serious and humorous, enthusiastically appreciative, and yet just and clear-sighted; but, above all, what the French call personnel. It is not the impersonal reviewer who is going through his paces....it is Thackeray talking to us as few can talk-talking with apparent carelessness, even ramblingly, but never losing the thread of his discourse or saying a word too much, nor ever missing a point which may help to elucidate his subject or enhance the charm of his essay....
