The Urns are among those produced y the distinguished art histor- an, England's Sir Kenneth :lark.

His greatest acclaim to fame came from combining all the arts, music, architecture, painting and sculpture in his world fa mous "Civilisation" series. ARTIST Artists presented in the n c w series are Manet. Cezanne Monet. Seurat, Rosseau and Munch.

It was largely through a bequest from the Joy Pratt Markham Foundation two years ago that the University Development Program headed by E. Donaubauer, acquired that series.
