Periodicals such as this both reflected and helped to define artistic tastes among upper middle-class Victorians tastes. This particular magazine had a wide circulation among the educated classes, commenting on individual paintings from popular exhibitions rather than the reviewing exhibitions as a whole. We can see from the illustrations and critiques contained in these periodicals the development of British art over the period, as well as the social and economic factors affecting its development: in particular the growing use of auctions to sell artworks.
