MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE MARCH 18 1931 ART DEPARTMENT HEARS TALK BY LITTLE GALLERY HEAD Appreciation of Art Topic of L e c t u r e Theresa Bernstein Pictures Shown in Library Assembly. Edward Rowan of the Cedar Rapids Little Gallery addressed .the ' members of the art department of the Woman's club Tuesday afternoon in the library assembly speaking on "Ah Approach to the Appreciation of Beauty" and commenting on the exhibit of Thresa Bernstein pictures which had been sent from the Little Gallery. "The quality of greatness may be ' found in a work of art regardless of its mode of expression," Mr. Rowan said. "What we like depends .on , what we.have seen, what our education has been arid our individuality. Much, -of beauty has been lost because of the individual. "Too many judge art by the technique displayed. The expression of the artist's,personality is the quality which makes his work /great. Van Gogh, a mad . Dutch painter, : had a great and passionate personality whichihe expressed in "his works. Sometimes he was so eager to express the idea which ne had that he squeezed the paints out of the tubes on the canvas · without waiting to use a brush and because of this lack of regard for academic methods he was criticized greatly. Look, For Personality. "Too-many feel that realism is the only quality to look for in art. The camera gives us i exact photographic reproductions and the only Young Wife Happy Now "Before my little daughter was born I took Lydia E. Pink- lam's Vegetable .Compound regularly; I was able to do my, usual work and take pleasure in doing it. We were so happy when a wonderfully fine baby girl arrived to bless our home. I have enjoyed better c health since the baby's birth than ever before. I am sure that I owe it all to your medicine and. I heartily recommend it to all women who are weak or ailing."--Mrs. Chester Decker, R. R. #r, Wheatland, Indiana. lydia E, Pinkiiam s P.nLham Me j. CD . I nn. Ma thing left for the artist is to give his emotional reaction to his subject matter. People should look deeper than the subject matter and should not' allow themselves to become angry over the subject or the mode of expreasion. The fine arts were created to make life more beautiful. 'The obviously beautiful which can be perceived at the first glance is often empty as a pretty face. Early Greek sculpture is an example of this. The antiquity of an object- has nothing to do' with its beauty. A Duncan Phyfe table is beautiful becausfe of its lines and design, not hecaus'e of its age. · ."An artist can improve on nature because, he can elmJnate or .add depending on his mood, He has an artists' license, much like the poet's license. Contemporary paint- era imitate the primitive in that they stress one thing at a time. Know What is Going On. "Everyone should know what'is going on in contemporary art and literature. When you go to look at a new picture, put preconceived ideas in back of you and disregard text book rules. . Mr. Rowan then showed a number of slides of Works of art, among them an ivory and gold figure from Crete, remarkable for its feeling of modernity; the head of the mother- in-law of Tut-Ank-Amen, formalized, but having enough of the personal characteristics to show how beautiful the must have been, a piece-of fifth century B." C. Greek sculpture notable for its feeling of form and compact mass, and figures from the Cathedral of Chartes. ··' "Many feel that story-telling pictures are outmoded, but some of the greatest of our art works are story-telling .ones. The difficulty is that they look like illustrations and are often pointless without the story. The' meeting of Anne and Jaochim which is part of a mural in .the Arena chapel at Padua is an example of this." Other story-telling works shown in the slides included a terra cotta by Delia Robia showing the meeting of-Mary and Elizabeth;, the anunciatlon by Simoni Martini and the Ludovici stone, and Orpheus leading Eurydice from the underworld, v , · ' Slides Are Varied. · The slides included the terra cotta head of a Roman patrician of about 100 A. D.. the painting of Captain Boro by Mazo, the son of Valesquez, a Michael Angelo figure and the "Creation of Adam" from the Sis- tin'e chapel; a nymph, done by Georgoni against a background by Titian; "Pallas Minerva and the Centaur," by Botacelli;. "Man With the Glove" by Titian; ?'The Young Sculptor" by Andrea · Del Sartox, 14 probably a self portrait? two orien- 11 tal paintings and a. group of con-: I | temporary prize winners including works of Alexander Brook, Louis Rltman, Picasso, Grant : Wood, Lowell Hauser and James * Chapm. The works of Miss Bernstein which included "Madonna," "Buddy With. Fruit and Flowers," "The Chess Players," "The Harbor," "Negroes," "New York," '"Ceelle," "Mme. Swan Hennessy,' "New England " "Beach Scene," "Mme. Bestra Radeff," "Still Life, 1 ' "Flower Arrangement," "The Pond," "Study," 'Quaint Hands," and "Immigrants." "Miss Bernstein's works resemble first sketches," Mr. Rowan said. They have a loose quality of design and richness of color. There is a very fine expression in the eyes. The Chess Players' attracted a great deal of attention when it was shown in New York." · ' Mr. Rowan had also brot a number of pieces of sculpture among them one of Ted Shawn in his eagle dance done by Frederick Williams, "Diana" by' Janet Scudder, "The Night Hawker" by Solon BorgV»-- s and a figure of Ruth St. Denis. /e"ra9/ mart " WHEN ITS A QUESTION OF .STOCKINGS . . choose from the striking new Paris -approved Spring shades in Hosiery 'As You Like h/ and there will be no question about it: Your stockings will be definitely in the model . . .
