06May1871, Paintings by Watts and Leighton

LONDON, May 6th, 1871.
—Academy with F. at 1.30 ; not frightfully full... There are 2 splendid portraits by Watts of Millais and Leighton. Said Leighton's pictures I don't care for ; and young Richmond has painted one of the same type : ancients playing at bowls with nothing on, which I can't appreciate.
