The Magazine of Art was an illustrated monthly British journal devoted to the visual arts, published from May 1878 to July 1904 in London and New York by Cassell, Petter, Galpin & Co. It included reviews of exhibitions, articles about artists and all branches of the visual arts, as well as some poetry, and was lavishly illustrated by leading engravers of the period.

Albert Joseph Moore (1841 - 1893) was an English painter of decorative and classical subjects. The fourteenth child of the York artist William Moore, and the brother of artists John Collingham Moore and Henry Moore, he was encouraged to pursue his talent for painting from a young age. Exhibiting two drawings at the Royal Academy in 1857, Moore began his studies at the Royal Academy Schools the following year. Influenced by the work of the Pre-Raphaelites, Moore felt stifled by the Academy and gradually moved towards a more decorative and aesthetic style of his own. Although Moore's paintings were criticised by his contemporaries for their lack of narrative and historical accuracy, Pre-Raphaelite figures such as Rossetti came to his support by stating that Moore's work did not need to rely upon these components. As well as in his paintings, Moore continued to show the influence of Pre-Raphaelitism in his fabric and wallpaper designs, tiles, murals and stained glass work.

Eugène-André Champollion (1848-1901) was a French etcher considered to be an important contributor to the development of 19th-century print-making. Born in Hautes-Alpes, he soon moved to Paris where he studied under Léon Gaucherel (1816-1886) and Edmond Hédouin (1820-1889).
