"Lionel Edwards is a landscape painter in the very top class, worthy to rank with any of the 19th century. He can paint the Hunt scurry as good and life-like as Ferneley, on a background worthy of Birket Foster..He has only to see a Hunt gallop once across his landscape to produce a dozen recognizable portraits of the men and their hunters,"" ---- Ref.: Higginson: 316 - 19; Biscotti: 123; Mitchell: 205 - 06
