AN INTEKESTIVd DISPLAY OV l'IC
TUKES AT TIIK COSMOS CtUIl.
THE SUNDAY HERALD, SUNDAY MAY 4. 1S90.
How Lost! How Regained,
Tho Number of Exhibits Not ns r.nrgo as
at Iiit Voar's Exhibition, But tho Aver
ago yuallty Hotter Few Sales Tho
Tho exhibition by Washington artists, hold
through tho kiuilncss of tho Cosmos Club, has
been very successful 60 far as interest and at
tendance aro concerned, though few sales wero
made. Tho exhibition, as compared with that
of last year, had less of quantity and more of
quality, considering tho fact that four or five of
our best men did not send anything. Still,
there was much that was very satisfactory.
Tho general effect of tho arraugement of tho
pictures and sculptures was good. On entering
the first thing that caught tho eye among tho
maze of pictures was a group of sculpture,
which tho majority only glanced at, their eyes
being immediately drawn to what is commonly
more interesting to tho general admirer of tho
lino arts tho warm-toned paintings which cov
ered tho walls. In going tho rounds the first
striking picturo was a head by E. L. Major,
an unusual scheme of color, but a very effective
and strong bit of work. Immediately above it
was a head by Mrs. Doublcday that attracted
much notice and deserved commendation. Mr.
E. F. Andrews contributed largely to the visi
tor's pleasure In the careful handling and
weet, soft tones of hib "Portrait of a Child."
This was very much admired. Next was a well
drawn head of Hon. Hugh McCulloch, by Mrs.A.
Lea Merritt. Tho head that attracted tho
most attention was a strongly painted portrait
of S. Jerome Uhl, by Mr. II. L. Macdonald. It
is full of life and vigor, and roveals the jovial
disposition of n strong and hearty enthusiast,
such as Mr. Uhl is known to be. Ed. Sicbert, a
Washington artist, now in New York, has a
very charming bit of landscape, a portrait of
Max "Weyl, and a head, "Flora," all illustrating
tho versatile talent and strength he is steadily
developing. A. G. Ileaton was well represented
by three portraits. A very pretty piece of col
oring is his "Portrait of a Young Lady," while
"Nelson Page" is very good. Max Weyl has
five landscapes, two of which are gems, while
all have an abundance of merit and plearc the
differinc tastes of many admirers. Ho had also
a very pretty "Portrait of a Child," which shows
that he does not confine his brush exclusively
to landscapes. Clara Wilson had a very good
"still life" in her "Bell, Book, and Candle."
E. L. Major had also three interesting studies,
entitled "Repose," "Girl Reading," and
"Leonl," carefully drawn and good in color.
H. Ulke had a very striking portrait of ex
Attorney General Garland. William McLeod,
retired curator of the Corcoran Gallery of Art,
had an interesting bit of historical landscape.
Parker Mann had four, the best of which is
"Nantucket Cliff." Two very delicate and
effective bits of nature wero those by Miss
Helen Nlcolay, "The Turn of the Tide" and
"A Quiet Home." G. B. Matthews's "Tho Po
tomac at Alexandria" is a very strong reminder
of a trip down the river on a misty day.
Others worthy of mention aro C. A. Harkness,
Eleanor Richards, J. Mooney, Annie E. Hoyle,
and J. II. Moser's "Head of an Old-time
The water-color gallery was well filled, the
principal exhibitors being W. II. Holmes, II.
Hobert Nichols, Miss Tiers, Miss Perrie, J. H.
Moser, Miss May Chapman, Mrs. Harrison, W.
G. Newton, P. Toft, Mrs. J. Mindeleff, Victor
Mlndeleff, Paul Putzki, and others. Mr.
nolmes's "Long Island Coast," "Bass Rock,"
"Light and Shade," "Castlemare," "Wet Day,"
"Jersey Coast," "Sunset on Meridian Hill,"
"New England Lane," and "Apple Orchard"
were geuerally admired. Mr. Nichols's land
scapes received a good share of attention. De
lancey Gill had only one on exhibition, but that
was very pleasing. Miss TIers's "still life"
was, as usual, much praised, as al60 were the
"heads." Miss E. Richards had a head on
pastel that was full of character and displayed
talent that ought to bo developed and encour
aged. P. Toft had some interesting historical
subjects, 6uch as "Bamborough Castle," "Tau
tulbu Castle," and "Stoke Pogis Church,"
(GrayV'Elegy,") all of whichare very good. Mr.
Mindelcft's apple blossoms were artistically
handled, and Mrs. Mindeleff 's portraits aro very
finely and beautifully finished. Miss Chap
man's character sketches of negro life aro very
spirited and clever, especially "The Sonata."
There were many others that space will not ad
mit of mention, but that aro of unusual merit.
There wap a dearth of sculpture, thero being
but two contributors, Mica Heldemau's group
called "Rescued," in plaster, and some portrait
busts by U. S. J. Dunbar. In au exalted posi
tion over tho mantel near tho entrance was a
bust of Thomas A. Hendricks, which is tho
model by which Mr. Dunbar is going to cut In
marblo a bust for the Senate. Then a group of
busts show some variety, the Chief Justice
AValte in plaster, a study head in terra cotta,
and a small ideal head In clay, unfinished,
which was especially admired, as was all tho
worl; of this young artist.
Tho Secret of a Ijoiijj Life.
You sometimes see a woman whoso old ago
Is as exquisite as was tho perfect bloom of her
youth. Sho seems condensed sweetness and
grace. You wonder how this has corno about;
you wonder how It is her life has been a long
and happy one. Hero aro some of tho reasons:
Sho knew how to forget disagreeable things.
Sho understood tho art of enjoyment.
She kept her nerves well in hand, and in
flicted them on no one.
Sho bolieved In tho goodness of her own
daughters and in that of her neighbors.
Sho cultivated a good digestion by tho aid of
Cook's Balm of Life.
Sho mastered the art of saying pleasant
Sho did not oxpecttoo much of her friends.
Sho made whatever work camo to hor con
genial. Sho retained her illusions, and did not believe
that all tho world was wicked and unkind.
She rollovcd tho miserable, and sympathized
with tho sorrowful.
Sho retained au eveu disposition, and made
tho bust of everything.
Sho did whatever camo to her cheerfully and
Sho uover forgot that kiud words and a smile
cost nothing, but aro priceless treasures to tho
Sho did unto others as sho would bo done by,
and now that old ago has come to her, and
thero is a halo of white hair about her head, sho
is loved and considered.
But tho real secret of her life was that for
twenty years she used Cook's Balm of Lifo for
all her ills. ,.
