posed of John W. Alexander, J. Alésd 
Weir and William M. Chase, met at Buc? 
worth’s last week, and inspected some 304 
pictures offered in response to the gen- 
eral circular issued to artists. They ac 
cepted only 15, it is said, for the reason 
'that there was not sufficient space in thé

John L. Kipling. 

John Lockwood Kipling, father of 
Rudyard Kipling, died last Sunday at his 
home in Wiltshire, England, He was 74 
years old, and well known as an artist, 
sculptor and author. 

John MacWhirter. 

John MacWhirter, died in London 
Jan. 28. He was born near Edinburgh 
in 1837 and was educated at Peebles 
and the School of Design, Edinburgh. 
As a painter of landscapes, a master of 
detail and technique, and as a scholar 
of Lotany, geology, and the natural sei 
ences, MacWhirter for more than half 
a century had been considered one of 
the leading lights of the English scien- 
tific and art worlds. Honors were con 
ferred upon him continuously from the 
time he was twenty-five years old, when 
he was elected an associate of the Royal 
Scottish Academy, to 1894, when he was 
enrolled in the Royal Academy. 

He was the son of George Mac Whir- 
ter, a wealthy paper manufacturer, and 
although his father hoped that the boy 
would follow a business career, only 


John Da Costa of London is showing 
until Feb, 8 at Doll & Richards’ galler- 
ies four portraits recently completed. 
They are of Mrs. Marshall Fabyan, Mrs. 

Charles Bruen Perkins, Miss Polly, the 

daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Edwin 5. 
Webster and of a lady whose name ts not 
made public. 

In the same gallery there are some in- 
teresting old tapestries and hangings, in- 
cluding a Gothic tapestry, with an Old 
Testament subject, a Flemish tapestry, an 
Italian embroidered frontal or altar- 
cloth, and a very handsome piece of old 

Thirty-eight works by modern Dutch 
masters are on exhibition at the Vose 
Galleries through eb. 11. The display 
is one of the most representative imagin 
able for this country. It includes typical 
examples of Jacob and Willem Maris, 
lommers, Neuhuys, De Bock, Weissen- 
bruch, Ter Meulen, de Hoog, van Essen,

Pictures by Childe Hassam. 

Watercolors by Florence Robinson, a 
pupil of Harpignies, are on exhibition at 
the Cobb Gallery.

leries, No. 550 Fifth Ave., through Feb.| 


Phe oils, hung in the large gallery, 
comprise two Bar Harbor scenes, several | 
outdoors at Grez and Nemours, lrance, 
eight interiors and outdoors with figures, | 
and six outdoors, the last painted in To- 
ledo, Seville, Cordova and Ronda, Spain. | 
The watercolors, pastels and drawings | 
have a wide range of subject, from the| 
New England coast, N. Y. Harbor, Old} 
Lyme, Conn., Oregon and the Harney | 
desert, to Holland, Southern France and) 
Spain. The artist is essentially a lover| 
of and seeker after “summer and the 
sun,” and the present display runs the 
gamut of high and hot color under tropi- 
cal and sub-tropical sunlight. The oils, | 
as a rule, are aglow with sensitive, throb- 
bing color and sunlight, rendered with| 
sincere sympathy and feeling. 

()f the oils the simple truthful view of 
a street in Grez, France, with a female 
pedestrian passing, is the strongest, in its 
very simplicity. Here is nothing but-a|

They have been trained in every detail, 
and the results in prints are superior.

photographs and the studies from the

Paris. The furniture is well worth the 
attention of collectors, as it includes a 
number of quaint Renaissance ehairs and 
other pieces, a Spanish Borgogne, and in 
particular a suite in Aubusson, period 
Louis Philippe, and which recalls the fa- 
mous Louis XV Chantilly suite.

\ cable to the Sun from Berlin states 
that the Kaiser has refused to confer the 
order Pour le Merite on Auguste Rodin, 
though the sculptor was unanimously 
recommended by the Academy of Arts. 
Phe Kaiser has always opposed modern 
tendencies in art, 

Mheodore K. Pembrooke is holding an 
exhibition of decorated screens in his 67 
St. studio, These are representative of 
the Louis XIV, XV, and Adams and Co 
lonial periods. The framework is orig 
inal in design and elaborately carved and 
toned to effectively set off the paintings 
by the artist himself. The paintings are 
good in color and are poetic in sentiment 
and feeling. The exhibition closes today. 
It has been well attended and successtul, 
nany sales having been made. 

S. Montgomery Roosevelt, the por 
traitist, whose portrait of the late Oliver 
H. P. Belmont is reproduced on_ this | 
page, has won reputation of late years, 
not alone for the prominent men and 
women he has painted in New York, 
London and Paris, but for the sincerity 
of his work. A pupil of Benjamin Con 
stant, and other famous French painters, 
his work has still marked individuality. 
His aim is to get the outline and charac- 
ter of a sitter in a single sitting, then to 
add details in further sittings. He rare- 
ly effaces or changes what he has painted 
after careful study of his subject. 

One of his early sitters was Mr. 
Thomas B. Clarke, who selected him to 
paint his portrait for the Lambs’ Club. 
\ recent and successful work is a por- 
trait of Mr. Louis Gilot, vice-president 
f the Etchers’ Society in Paris, which 
will hang in the coming Spring Salon. 
Freshness of color and grace of line, 
-haracterize this, as well as other works. 
‘Premier Coup” is his motto and hence 
the directness in his work. 

\t his Sherwood studio, the artist now 
is painting a full length standing portrait 
f Mrs. George Albert Burt. It is a dig- 
nified work, well composed, good in color 
and an excellent likeness. <A proof of 
the esteem in which Mr. Roosevelt is held 

France, is his recent decoration as a 

valier of the Legion of Honor. 

Richard Maynard is painting a_ full 
length portrait of Miss Grace Koehler. 
\ recently completed portrait by this ar- 
ist was of Mrs. Martin J. Littleton. He 

now at work upon a composition pic- 

\n important canvas by Gustave Wie- 

1 representing the “Old Courthouse 
Richmond, Staten Island,” has recently 
purchased for Richmond county by 

he Hon. Lester W. Clark. It has been 

hung in the old courthouse at Richmond 
pending the completion of the new one 


at St. George. 

Content Johnson's “Silence and Twi 
light” was recently purchased by Mr. R 

W.. Brixey, and “French-Canadian Gar 

dens” was bought by Mr. T. Gordon 
Greenway. She is now painting a full

Lovers of antiques of the near Orient 
will find several good pieces included in 
an exhibition at the art rooms of Mr. K. 
\haronian, No. 24 West 32 St. There 

‘is also a collection of 16th century Per- 

sian miniatures, and one of Sultanabad 

Of especial interest are several small 
Greek figures. L. D. Yacobian has also 
on exhibition in the same rooms, several 
of his paintings. The artist is a gradu- 
ate of the Yale School of Fine Arts and 
was awarded the Wm. Wirt Winchester 
Fellowship in 1906 for his “The Musi-

evidence that so many pictures had

iratively limited hanging space in the 

L'nited States Pavilion at Rome, and

incline towards the Jury system. 

The Commissioner presumably found 
himself confronted by a dilemma and 
only careful study of the list of artists

artists and art lovers to decide whether 
he has impaled himself on either horn 
of said dilemma. Whether or not, in

| Aschitectural Leas Exhibition. 

The twenty-sixth annual exhibition of 
‘the Architectural League of New York 
| opened to the public in the Fine Arts 
(Galleries, No. 215 West 57 Street, on 
Sunday last, Jan. 29, and will continue 
‘there through Feb, 18. The press view 
'was held on Friday, Jan. 27, the annual 
‘dinner in the Vanderbilt Gallery, which 
~~ this vear unusually good in every 
|way amd especially in the few and brief 
| speeches notably those of Mr. Charles 
ik. Miller, Congressman Sladen and Bor- 
Lough President McAneny, the same even- 
ing, and the private view on Saturday 

Phrough regrettable and unexplain- 
able carelessness of management, there 
were no catalogues ready for the art 
writers, and the few supplied on Satur- 
day were soon exhausted, so that this 

notice is necessarily written from hasty 
and hurried notes, while no photographs 
of any of the interesting exhibits could 
be procured for reproduction in the Art 

will be rectified another year. 

The Allied Arts are all adequately rep- 
resented in this year’s display, which with 
the subordination, almost elimination, of 
ithe erstwhile overpowering and dispro- 
| portionate showing of architectural plans 
and elevations, will be found most inter- 
lesting and attractive by the art public. 
| Among the 835 exhibits are many beau- 
tiful mural paintings and decorations, 
some good sculptures and a rarely good 

display of drawings, many in color, and 

cartoons. ‘Lhe prizes were awarded as 
follows : 

The Henry ©. Avery $300 prize for 
the best design for a mural fountain to 
be placed on the wall of a building at 
the intersection of two streets to Law- 
rence M. Loeb architect ; Henry 
Krueger, painter, and George Lober, 
sculptor. Mention was made of the de- 
signs resulting from the collaboration of 
H. Van Buren Magonigle, architect; E. 
\l. Magonigle, painter, and Leo Len- 
itelli, sculptor, and of that bearing the 
names of Charles W. Foster, architect; 
| Robert K. Ryland, painter, and Edmund 
| Ouatroechi, sculptor. 

The sculpture prize was given to A. 
Phimister Proctor for the two tigers of 

Vews. ‘It is to be he yped that these defects |

and honorable mention for painting to 
Barry Faulkner, recently from the Amer- 
ican Academy in Rome, for his mural 
“Heroes of Antiquity,” for Mrs. E. H. 
Harriman’s country house at Arden, 
XN. Y. No prize for architecture was 

awarded, the committee reporting that no | 
one exhibit was considered sufficiently 

worthy, a strange decision with the dig- 
nified and beautiful designs for the new 

West Point buildings by Cram Goodhue | 

and Ferguson, those for the new Penna. 

Station in New York by McKim Mead | 

and White, and of the William Rice In- 
stitute at Houston, Texas, recalling the 
Taj Mahal, by Cram, Goodhue and Fer- 
guson, all on the walls. 

The murals which will attract the most 
attention and study are Barry Faulk- 
ners “Heroes of Antiquity,” above 
noted, with stiffly posed figures and awk- 
ward composition, but aglow with color, 
and having a certain striking effect, re-| 
vealing close study of Pinturicchio; W. 
De L. Dodge's large and theatrical alle-| 
gorical composition, 
pheus” too much like scene painting, but

In his opening address at the annual 
dinner, President Boring urged the es- 
tablishment of a State Art Commission, 
which should work against the accept- 
ance of inferior art works, and for the 
erection and artistic adornment of pub- 
lic buildings.

Academy of Design Defended. 
Editor American Art News. 

Recent criticisms of the National Acade1 

f Design by those honestly ignorant of 
shia or purposely ignoring them, may ha 
led some of the unthinking public to 
lieve the Academy was a close corporati 
as charged, and only local in its charact 
There is no use going into a long argume 
ito the contrary, nor do | care to enter int 
any controversy, for we are bound to he 
; the same from time to time, as some art 
|}imagines his art not appreciated, or sor 
knocker at the door is unwelcome. 

The first of these charges ts easily r 
futed by referring to any of the recent cat 
llogues of the Academy Exhibitions wher 
it can be plainly seen that the non-membe 
greatly exceeded the members in the numb 
|of works exhibited. I might also state, f 
the information of those who are réally ho 
est in this criticism, that many works 
| members—even those by members of th 
| jury—are rejected at each exhibition. Th 
charge that there is nothing national abou 
ithe Academy is absurd. What makes a 
| body national if it is not that all parts of 
the nation are represented, and what body 
in the United States can boast of this as can 
| the Academy? An artist making a repu 
tation, or striving for one, does not usually 
remain in a state where there is little en 
|couragement for art, but goes abroad, or 
|comes to New York, the art centre of this 
country. Thus, the Academy is, not only 
| national, but really international, as_ its 
| members have come from the following 
States and foreign countries: 

Ala., Cal., Conn., Del., Ill, Kansas, Ind., 
Ky., Maine, Mass., Md., Mich. Mo., N. H., 

N. J., N. Y., O., Pa. R. I, S. Tenn., Va., 
Vt., Wash., D. C., and Wie: also Austria, 
Brazil, Denmark, England, France, Ger- 
many, Hungary, Holland, Ireland, Italy, 
Sweden and Uruguay. 

It might as well be said that our Congress 
was only a local affair. 

We are also informed by our critics that 
our exhibitions are inferior to those held in 
Washington, Pittsburg, Chicago or Philadel 
phia. This charge is, as far as the number 
of exhibits go, unfortunately true, for we 
have not the building in which to exhibit 
and cannot force a quart into a pint meas- 
ure. But the time is coming when we will 
have what we are striving for, and this will 

| be hastened if the gentlemen who are try- 
jing so hard to find faults (which if exist, 
lcan easily be remedied) will turn their at- 
| tention to the fact that art in this country is 
fast becoming the best in the world, and the 
|} Academy is, and will continue to be, the 
motherhead, with its splendid traditions of 
| sents hinety years and its unrivaled mem- 
bership. If the works of Academicians and 
\ssociates were withdrawn from the ex- 
hibitions in the above-mentioned cities, 
what would be left? Practically nothing! 

Now for one last word. When the Acad- 
emy has its permanent home it will, we 
hope, also be the home of the Architectural 
League, the National Sculpture Society, the 
Water Color Societies, the Mural Painters 
and other bodies, each under its own name 
and management as at present, but exhibit- 
ing in one great annual exhibition that will 
be the art event of the year. And mark 
this, it is coming—right here in New York, 
and the National Academy of Design will 
“make good.” 

Harry W. Watrous. 
New York, Feb. 1, 1911. 


\ cable to the Sun from Paris says that 
the Count de Choiseul, brother of the 
Duke de Choiseul-Praslin, who married 
\Irs. Hamilton Paine, and recently fig- 
ured with his wife in the D’Aulby case, 
exchanged five pictures, claimed examples 
f Van Dyck, Hals, Rubens, Ten Eyck 
and Lely, which he had bought from the 

|dealer Van der Perre in the Rue Georges, 

for $4,200, for a pearl necklace, with a 
M. Walter, a jeweler, for $18,000. The 
Count claimed that the pictures belonged 
|to the de Choiseul galleries but Mr. Wal- 
iter learned that the house where he saw 
them belonged to Mme. Serrano. He 
also learned that the Count had sold the 
necklace for $8,200. As he was not paid 
on April 15 last, the date set, for his neck- 
lace nor since, he has lodged a complaint 
against the Count, a go-between named 
Pfister, and Van der Perre. 




London, Jan. 25, 1911. 

A picture on view at the Mendoza 
sallery, in New Bond St., “There is 
o Death,” by Italo Sabartini, is at- 
racting great attention. It emphasizes 
‘ith force the reality of a continued 
ersonal existence. 

\ recent exhibition at the gallery of 
ir. W. B. Paterson (5, Old Bond 
street), says The Connoisseur, showed 
he late Sir Francis Seymour liaden 
n the guise of an artist in watercolor 
ind charcoal. The bulk-of the water- 
olors were early work anterior to his 
success as an etcher. They were all 
listinguished by‘ vigor; but, as com- 
vared with the master’s etchings, dis- 
lisplayed promise rather than perform- 
ince. Some were curiously reminiscent 
§ the works of the older school of 
vatercolor painters, and were not dis- 
inguished by any marked originality 
f outlook, The charcoal drawings be- 
longed to a later period, several of 
them, all those dated bearing the dates 
1878-9. These were broad and atmos- 
pheric, a litthe sombre in treatment, 
but, as a rule, finely composed and 
marked by a fine conception of tonal 
values, That they were as original or 
as great as his etchings, however, could 
not be said. 

Warwick Goble’s watercolors illus- 
trating “Japanese fairy legends,” shown 
at the galleries of the Fine Art Society, 
inevitably invited comparison with Ar- 
thur Rackham’s more robust drawings, 
especially in the examples in which the 
coloring was reinforced by pen work, 
vet there is this essential difference be- 
tween the methods of the two illustrat- 
ors, that while Mr. Rackham uses color 
only as an adjunct of his line, with Mr. 
Goble, pen work is of little vital im- 
portance, and he is quite as happy when 
he dispenses with it altogether. The 
watercolors at the same gallery | 

|.adv Louisa Charteris were those of a} 

clever amateur, a little undecided in 

texture, but bright, pleasing, and nat- | 


Recent information is to the effect 
that the British Museum may not get 
1e collection of Egyptian and Assyrian 
treasures left to it by the late Lady 
Meux. A clause in her will requires 

the collection to be kept together, while |“ 

a rule of the Museum stipulates that 

all valuable collections shall be scien-' 

tifically classified and arranged. As a 
vay out of the difficulty it has been 
suggested that the bequest would make 
an excellent exhibition for some large 
ity in the British empire. 
The controversy over the famous 
Vax Bust continues. Dr. Bode still 
ypes to change the verdict of a major- 
ty of German artistic opinion which 
is been passed against his Flora bust, 
nd in the recent issue of the official 
eports of the Berlin Museum, he cites 
rther evidence to support his view 

at, if the bust did not come from the| 

udio of Leonardo, it is certainly the 
duct of the Italian school. Among 
her experts, he mentions M. Edouard 
uuet, the Parisian expert and restorer 
the technique of sculptures in clay, 
ry, and wax, who has written a let- 
to Dr. Bode in which he says in 
rt: “I am convinced that this bust 
nnot be the work of Lucas. The 
hole style points to its being the pro- 
iction of a great master. The appear- 
of the material, the tone of the 
ix, the patina, all are identical with 
imerous works in wax of the XVI 
d XVII centuries, which I have had 
repair. I have had some practice in 
stinguishing between what is genu- 
and what is counterfeit, and I am 
ivinced that the Flora bust is an old 
a of the Italian school.” 


For the 93 pictures, 
which formed the stock of Mr. 
Oehme, the veteran dealer, 
retired from business, Mr. Thomas E. 
Kirby obtained an announced total 
$56,595, at Mendelssohn Hall, Friday 
evening, Jan. 27. This was a disap- 
pointing result, as it had been hoped 
that Mr. Oehme, for whom 
sympathy in his illness and consequent 
forced retirement is felt and expressed, 

Julius | 

would realize more from the dispersal | « 

f his good stock, which is said to have 
cost him about $100,000. 

But the season is not a good one for 
picture auctions, and some of Mr. 
Oehme’s stock had become old fash- 
ioned, as for example the examples of 

Kaemnrerer and Kowalski, The Bar-| 

bizons and Dutch pictures in the sale 
were not well supported by the dealers, 
jand some went at almost bargain 
prices. The excellent Diaz, which sold 
for $4,600 and which was secured by 
|Mr. P. J. Goodhart, is said to have cost 
| Mr. Oehme some $11,000, 

The dealers were out in force and 
among those present were Messrs. 
Schauss, Reinhardt, Vose, Glucksman, 
Durand-Ruel, Knoedler, Scott and 
Fowles, Fay, MacDonald, Schultheis and 
Thompson. There were comparatively 
few private buyers, but among tthese 
were Messrs. Hugo Reisinger, who se- 
cured a good Pissarro for $1,075, A. A. 

Bock for the low price of $210, P. J. 
Goodhart, and M. M. Lehman.

A total of $55,967 for 124 oils from 
the collection of Mr. John D. Crimmins 
‘and the Blakeslee Galleries, was the an- 
nounced result of the sale of said pic- 
tures at auction at the Clarke Art 
Rooms, No. 5 West 44 St., on the even- 
ings of Jan, 25-20, 

The collection was not a harmonious 
one as Mr, Crimmins’ pictures were 
chiefly moderns, and the Blakeslee of- 
ferings were old historical portraits. 
Among the moderns which attracted 
the most attention Firmin Girard’s 
“Flower Seller’ brought $1,500, and 
Munkacsy’s “Feeding the Favorite,” 
$2,750. Two cabinet Corots of good 
quality, brought $1,900 and $1,600 re«

Secretary MacVeagh has issued new 
customs rules to govern the importation 
of art objects. Art works not less than 
20 years old, in future, include tapestries, 
paperhangings, glass windows, clocks for 
ornament, or household furniture. All 
such articles must pay duty. Bronzes, 
paintings and furniture, more than 100 
years old, will continue to come in free, 

liberal interpretation of that term. 


Arrangements are being made by 
Charles Owsley with the Pennsylvania 
Academy to exhibit 100 pictures here, 
next month. Among the artists whose 
works will be on view are: Thomas P. 
\nschutz, Charles Grafly, Alice Barber 
Stevens, Hugh H. Breckenridge, Mary 
Butler and Nicola d’Ascenzo. 


The case against the firm of Duveen 
Brothers on indictments charging un- 
dervaluation was called in the U. S. Cir- 
cuit Court last Monday. Neither of the 

'defendants, Messrs. Henry J., and Ben- 

'jamin Duveen was present, and the case 
was set for trial March 6. 

| The painting of the “Virgin and In- 
ifant Christ,” attributed to Quentin 
|Matsys, has been stolen from a private 
house in Antwerp. It is valued at 

Paris, Jan. 25, 1911. 

Manuel Barthold has returned to his 
Paris studio, after spending some 
months in Zeeland, Holland, where he 
laid the foundation for his two Salon 
pictures, on which he is now working. 
In addition to studies of Dutch peas- 
ants, he has painted many landscapes, 
which he intends to use in future im- 
portant work, It will be remembered 
that this American painter was awarded 
a silver medal for his “Holland Girls,” 
a large canvas exhibited in the Inter- 
national section of last year’s 
tional Exposition at 

Buenos Aires. 
“Femme a la Poule,” and “Le Livre 
Neuf” are two of his pictures bought 
by Madariaga, who placed them in his 
special Salle in the Buenos Aires Mu- 

The exhibition of pastels by Arthur 
Wardle at the Tooth Galleries is. one 

of animal life studies and show strong 
\draughtsmanship, action, play in line 
| character and color. “Tigre buvant,’ 
jhas a beautiful scheme of color ; “Sauvé, 
iL ionne et Lionceaux” is strong in ac- 
tion; “Seigneurs du Nord—Ours Po- 

,- )laires” has every quality of a water- 

color in the transparency of its deep 
blue sea; its color scheme being blue 
and white. “Surprise” has strong beau- 
tiful color, with intense nervous inter- 
est. “L’Alerte—Pumas” is a strong sil- 
houette in grays, 

The Little Salon of the Cercle Vol- 

ney, which recently opened, contains 
as usual a number of interesting works, 
including a bust portrait by Bonnat of 
a young woman in blue, a bust portrait 
of a man by M. Cormon and two pr 
traits by Gabriel Ferrier, on 
onel and another of a mem» 
Institute, both in uniform. 
also two portraits of huntsm« 
M. Dawant and Marcel Basciret re- 
spectiv ely; two portraits “in the lit- 
tle,” by M. Weerts, a delicious present- 
ment of a child in ball costume, in the 
manner of Velasquez, by Raymond 
Woog, and also a portrait of a little 
girl by Paul Chabas. 

It is to be regretted that the two fine 
portraits sent by Jules Cayron should 
be so badly hung, as they deserve a 
better place. The same remark applies 
to the portraits shown by Richard Hall. 
Other good portraits are shown by Par- 
era, a Saint-Pierre, Muller, Guil- 
lemet, Georges Claude, Boisselier, de 
|Cool, Fournier, and one of M. Porel by 

but must be bona fide works of art under | Jean Sala. 

| In landscapes Aston Knight shows an 

admirable work, and there are striking 
canvases by Gosselin, Gueldry, Bou- 
choc, Brugairolles, Cachoud, Chigot, 
Waidmann, Girardet, Guignard, Iwill, 
Nozal, Regamey, Remond, and Le 

The sculptures include two busts by 
Denys Puech, a bust of Velasquez by 
Stanislas Lami, and one of M. Leonce 
Benedite by Paul Paulin. 

“Les Quelques,” an association of 
twenty-five women artists, is holding its 
annual exhibition at the Chaine and Si- 
monson galleries in the Rue Caumar- 
tin. The display is an interesting one, 
and has several superior canvases. 
Among those best represented are 
Mmes. Cazin, Desbordes Jonas, Galtier 
Boissiére, Duranton, Devolve Carriére, 
Paule Séailles, Stettler, and de Boznan- 
ska and Mlles. Beatrice How, Florence

Loeb Memorial Display. 


the late Louis Loeb closes at the Lotos 
Club this evening. The display was in 
teresting and a deserved tribute to the 

dead artist, too soon called away, but| 
~ “*4 » “ee ino 7 . at | , . . 
contained really nothing of note that | eling and expression an alluring work, 
has not been seen and noticed before. | 

The exhibition, as did previous ones, 
evidenced how the dead painter had ad- 
vanced from his earlier and somewhat 
saccharine landscapes, to the production 
of figure work and portraits, character- 
ised by dignity and seriousness of feel 
ing and treatment, and rich color qual 
ity. The “Jessica,” loaned by Mr. 
Smithers, the “Miranda” from Mrs. 
Bonner, and the “Byblis” of Dr. Hum 
phreys, it was a delight especially to 
see again. 

Portraits by Harrington Mann. 

\fter Francois Flameng’s hard, if 
brilliant fashion plates, it is a pleasure 
of contrast, to see and study at the 
Knoedler Gallery, No. 355 Fifth Ave., 
this week, 14 portraits by Harrington 
Mann, the English artist who paints 
with sincerity, skill and true artistic 
feeling. There are no staring, over- 
coiffed and dressed women in Mr. 
Mann’s canvases. He paints his sitters 
more as they are than as they might 
perhaps sometimes like to appear, but 

natural expression that 
makes them creatures of flesh and 
blood, with “like passions to ourselves” 
and does not, like MM. Flameng, Kop- 
pay, and other foreign portraitists who 
come to New York, make them dress 
maker’s and milliner’s puppets. 

The presentments of Mrs. C. D. Bar 
ney, Mrs. Horace Harding and the 
Countess de la Greze are excellent, and 
good likenesses. He has painted Miss 
\larie ‘| en pest a she 1S, f; uithfi illy and 
effectively, but his presentment of Miss 

he Ives the 

Grace George is marred by a hard back 
ground, which tones too much with 
the figure, to make the latter stand out 
although the portrait isa g 

Mr. Mann’s groups of Mothers and 

” 1 one, 

Children, suggestive of Gainsborough 
in composition aid coloring are most 
effective. He is a_ thoroughly well 
equipped and able po rtraitist. 

In the same gallery are some minia 
tures by Miss Alice Riddle Foster, un 

}usually good in drawing and color, but 

none of them inspired, while faithful in 
likeness for the most part, and no doubt 
satisfactory to their owners. 

Miss McLane’s Portraits. 

Miss M. Jean McLane (Mrs. Johan 
sen), is Showing at the Folsom Galler 
ies, No. 396 Fifth Ave., through Feb 
11, 24 portraits, mostly of mothers and 
children. The artist, whose strong 
work has been commended before in 
these columns, reveals herself in this 
attractive little display, as sympathetic 
a student and painter of motherhood 

!and childhood as Miss Cassatt and Miss 

Lydia Emmet. Sympathy and feeling, 
in fact, are the characteristics of her 
work and with good knowledge of fig 
ure drawing and an unusual colorist, 
she translates the varying moods and 
expressions of mothers with their chil 
dren, and of the latter, both truthfully 
antl convincingly. 

The “Girl in Green,” seen before, re 
mains one of her best achievements, 
finely drawn and posed, excellent in 
good in color, ‘The 
Hilltop” is also an unusually good 
group, well composed and instinet with 
\life and movement. \n unusually 
strong show for a woman painter. 

Early Italian Pictures. 

\t the E. Gimpel and Wildenstein 

(jalleries, No, 636 Fifth Ave., there are 
on exhibition through Feb. 18, seven 
A memorial exhibition of the works Of | care fully 

chosen examples of famous 
early Italian painters, which make up 

}an unusual and rarely beautiful little 

display. There is a bust portrait by 
\ndrea del Sarto, in color quality, mod 

a little bust portrait of Alde Manuzio 
by G. Bellini, which might be called an 
“Italian Holbein,” a superb bust por 
trait of a daughter of Cosmo de Medi 
cis by Bronzino, exquisite in quality 
and detail, a quaint “Adoration of the 
Magi” by Folchetto and a triptych, a 
fine example bv Don Lorenzo. 

One need not quarrel with the attri 
butions of these early works. They 

speak for themselves in quality and| 


Wiggins at Katz's. 

\n exhibition of fifteen canvases by 
Guy C. Wiggins opened at the Katz 
(jalleries, 103 West 74 St. on Monday 
to continue until Feb. 11. 

The display, which includes shore pic 
tures, landscapes and street scenes, is 
uniform in quality and shows the artist 
at his best. At the end of the gallery 
an important canvas, “Lincoln Square 
Winter,” is placed. It represents that 
locality during a snowstorm, and is 

realistic, while possessing charm of!

\ll the canvases show a truth of pet 
ception, keen observation and are «

shown by this artist. 
Will J. Quinlan, whose 
or work is familiar to all art lovers, 1s 
wlding an exhibition of etchings also at 


these galleries. These are original in 
composition, with remarkable qualities of 
light and shade. The display includes 

typical American subjects such as New 
York street scenes, beach scenes, marines, 
and landscapes. 

Union League Display. 

The first exhibition under the auspices 
of the new Art Committee of the Union 
League Club will open Thursday next, 
Keb. g. It will be made up of a group 

of works by leading American marine | 

and landscape painters. The exhibitors 
will be Henry W. Ranger, Cullen Yates, 
Louis Paul Dessar, Albert L. Groll, Paul 
Dougherty, Frank DeHaven, Edward 
Potthast, Gifford Beal, F. Ballard Wil-

Kmile Carlsen, and George H. Bogert. 
Two unusual examples of Blakelock will 
also be shown. The purpose of the Art 
Committee is to give five or six exhibi- 
tions during the season. The next one 
which will take place in March will 
clude the works of American landscape 
and figure painters.
