Athenaeum, 2 June 1883:
Mr. Eyre Crowe’s Old Porch, Evesham (11), a study, with figures, of the well-known entrance to the church at Evesham, can boast of careful and solid painting of the Gothic stonework, and is rather richer in tone than is usual with Mr. Crowe; but it is deficient in brilliancy and clearness, qualities essential to architecture in sunlight.
