T. blackheads Paintings on Exhibition That Will Bemaili Until Tuesday Next. In the rooms of the Pen end Brush Club are on exhibition canvases which picture lovers should not fall to see. Dewing Woodward and Ida Burgess aro the artists who give the exhibition, which opened on Monday afternoon to friends of the artists. It will remain on view for the public until the evening of Tues-(luy Tues-(luy Tues-(luy next. At the opening, on Tuesday last, a large number of visitors, more than the rooms could accommodate with case, were recognized. Among those were: Mrs. Phillips Comstock, Miss Ida Tar-sell, Tar-sell, Tar-sell, Mrs. Eva Carson, Miss Janet Lewis, Mrs. Hill, MIsb Device, Mr. Shotwell, Mr. Crowulnshield, Mr. Mills and Mr.- Mr.- Shaw. The four or five hundred persons who deRlod through the room were mostly enthusiastic, although one protest was heard from a gentle little old lady, who snld thnt she ""wished those babies were in the house with their clothes on!" The "babies," It appears, objected strenuously strenuously to having "their clothes on" when posing for Miss Woodward, under the pines, or among the flowers of her home in the Cntsklll, where she paints hor nudes, and where she -is -is adored by all her little friends. Ha paintings, of children children would seem to prove this, for they breathe the Joy of life. One prominent painter asked "How. Is It that all your canvases seem so Joyous?" Joyous?" To whlrh the reply waa: "I am sure I cannot tell, unless It is because T have such a perfectly beautiful time while I am painting them. I Always am certain that everything I do Is a masterpiece masterpiece so long as I am at work upon It. but when it is finished, that is another story." There Is no doubt that the four child nirtures do glow with Joy as well as with tender luminous color. One maiden maiden of 1) or so yenrs lies prono on the pine needlfs absorbed In the "Arabian Nights," kicking one slim foot In the air with delight: Rnnther Is Intent upon euttliiB paper dolls, and the artist says "sho did not know that she was poslnr," Two others are breathlessly watching the light of a dra Hon fly, while Cupid ond Psyche, the little maid on tiptoe, regard one nnother with nn expression of "Who'll wink first?" that betokens small concern for the painter and her anxieties. This last, we learn, has been purchased for SI.OiWi by on smntur, who declines to make his name known. "The South Window." n studv from the nudo, and several twlllaht effects, and one dlsrntfled "Portrait of a Lady" show versatility, and remarkable mastery nf almost academic drawlnr. although Miss Woodward's handling of color betokens a more than "modern" spirit. Miss Burgess has a larger exhibition by about a dozen in number, and shows a beautiful window, a "Portrait of Julia Marlowe," In the role of Juliet, a most excellent likeness, and a delicious color scheme. The blue of the moonlit sky Is peculiarly happy, and the brilliant, yet softly opalescent border Is a thing of Joy. A larga Tryptlch, "The Dance," Is a decoration of great beauty, the sunny landscape setting, and will probably find a home In the house of some appreciative lover of beauty before the close of the exhibit. A canvass by Dowing Woodward, entitled entitled "Golden Warblers," portraying a youth, on tiptoe, whistling to a little yellow yellow bird in a tree, all in brilliant golden tones, lias been purchased In Baltimore, where It was on exhibition In the "Collection "Collection of Contemporary American Art," which closed on Sunday last. It would find its proper setting in one of the .nuseums. a ak MR. BENJAMIN'S COLLECTION. Pictures Prom Private Gallery on Exhibition at American Art Association.
