There are severnl uncfimiiioii fentures
about the collection of paintings nnd
drawings belonging to the lalo Tndamasa
llay.ishl of Toklo Just placed on view at
liu- American Art Ualleilcs, together with
the largo assortment of historical china
and oilier rarities collected by tho late
My. liailss.i W Samson of West Med
ford Mass., prefatory to sale next week.
The lla.wishl plctuies, which Include
examples by Degas, Claude Monet. Pis-
sarin, Slsley, tietioir anu oilier memueis
of tho Flench Impressionist group, were
t biougbt together by u man of Oriental

The handsome Illustrated catalogue of
the turning sale was engraved and printed,
except for tho descriptive text, In Japan.
The pictures represent the taste, In art
' woik not of Ids own race, of ono or tho
most distinguished Japanese connoisseurs
In tho ait of tho Orient, who was desig
nated by his (kivertiuient to be director of
the Japancso art exhibit at the Pari ax
position In 11)00. a showing that will not
easily bo fot gotten by thoso fortunate
enough to have seen It.
As tho several Introductory chapters In
tho rntalogue tell, the maker of this col
lection was one of tho earliest mission
aries In l'urope for the art of his own
people. This was when Hayashl was con
cerned In sbowint Japanese achievements
it the Paris world's fair In 1878, nnd
then It was that he met the French Im
pressionists and other painters and sculp
tois. with whose work In turn he became
enthusiastically acquainted. So It hap
pened that Hayashl nnd Degas and Monet
and the rest exchanged Kuropean palnt-
1 logs for Japanese pottery and lacquer,
and tho Oriental, who lieeame a dealer in
Pal Is for Eastern nrt, also added to his
private collection by purchase.
Pel Imps no better opportunity wltl be
vouchsafed for years to oome to study
the extent to which a man of one rce
can enter Into the fiellngs of another that
Is wholly alien In blood nnd tradition.
Hayashl hnd not only an expert and
eiisltlvn acquaintance with the art of his
own country and of China before be came
Into iimtact with that of tho West, but
he had this further advantage, that he
(was personally In touch with tho leaders
I of tho French art of his day: ho was their

seems to have appreciated Joyously the
Ideas und the methods of Degas und
Monet, but he nl mi put Into his collection
a lot of pictures that fall far below these

There are, for example, eighteen pic
tures by C Rossnno, of whom It would
probably not be easy to find biographical
data, which seem curiously to contradict
tho standard het up In Hayashl'a really
knowing and admirable group of eleven
drawings und paintings by Degas. There
are thirteen pictures by Ylctor Vlollet
Le Due, which are so unimportant and so
wanting In personality that one cannot
easily understand hew a man could have
treasured them who could see the beauty
:n the Moniis, the PIssarroa, tho Renolra,
that now adorns the walls of the Ameri
can Art CJallerles.
On the other hand there are In the
Hayashl collection four paintings, thor
oughly French in character, and done In
no uncertain way, by a Japanese artist In
Paris, Selkl Kuroda, which denote a
wholly unexpected powr of assimilation
of Occidental vision and Interpretation by

that their author was extraordinarily

There Is something uncanny In this
sssumptlon of so remote and unlikely a

of them, such ns the following:

The collection has some old Dngllsh
demijohns, rlpn In color and stout and

pewter nro good, without being remark

there Is nrtlstlo beauty.
