, pp. 137-138: "Finely shown, upon an easel, The Reprimand (No. 432) wins every visitor. Eastman Johnson has here demonstrated that an American may fairly meet foreign artists their chosen field of genre
painting. He so concentrates your interest upon the two figures, that not much is thought of their surroundings; yet the rude apartment is very realistic, and the fire-place and liberal chimney are sketched exceedingly well. Nothing could be more perfect than the old man and the young girl, each a study in expression most unique. The girl has been disobedient and the old man is administering reproof, to little purpose. Her attitude and look indicate smothered rebellion; she seems, as I once heard lady say, “as if she were just going to tap her foot." What a pity it is that a pretty girl can get so spunky!," as The Reprimand.
