Writing a testimonial for Stanley , in the year this was created, Randolph Schwabe, Master of Drawing at the Royal College of Art commented:
Mr Lewis is an able draughtsman and has undertaken large and ambitious figure paintings with much interest in the composition of them.  His work is entirely sincere and straightforward.... (11th July 1930).

A review of the 1930 Scholarship finalists (undated newspaper cutting) noted that the cartoon was "much more successful than the finished painting".
