The Views of an Art Student of
ORIGINALITY OF AMERICANS

Travel and Study Will
Norfolk, Va., February 13, 19U.".
Editor Norfolk Virgiuian:
It is often asked why so many
students go abroad to study art ami
what are the real advantage* abroad
as compared with those at home.
The student who prepares to au
ewer these questions for himself by
going to l'nris to study art, iu tin
lirst pluco tiuds himself free, to a
degree he hud scarcely hoped for, ti
devoto his time exclusively to art.
lie discovers that haven tor artists
known as tho Latin Quarter, inhab
fled nearly altogether by art aed
college students absorbed iu their
work. There the artists have social
life among themselves or not, just us
they choose, coming and gotug as
they will, maybe living iu the shab
biest apartments, practicing th
strictest economy, but with their |i
sitiou unaffected thereby, und tue
phrase "keeping up appearanees"
altogether without a meaning. He

the 8tddi Of music and art
is only lately being introduced into
the public Bohools iu this country,
where every child can study theui.
the countries of Southern Europe
hnvo centuries of art culture behind
them until it has become a part of
their very motitul atmosphere; a
culture acquired not only iu the
Bchools, but taught by masterpieces
iu every street nud pnblio building.
Eveu tho uneducated, us wo under?
stand that word, are excellent
judges of art. An Ita iau boy
a bettor art critic than the average
ihuu of culture in America.
The civilizing and enlightening
intlueueee of this universal urt edo
cation very quiokly impress them?
selves upon tlie American; ho 60ou
understands what bis French art
teacher meant by his unqualified
otntenieut that tho Americans won
barbarians. True, bo only needs to
look at another side of French life to
return thu compliment und regain
his self-satisfaction. Americans
membering their wonderful history
and aware of how far
in organization, government and in?
vention; in religion ami morality
Burpass thoss of tho Treueu, are
likely to take it for grunted thut
tuey nre altogether a superior peo?
ple; that their country has the whole
advantage of France. The; seldom
reflect that educators have shown
three lines of development for the
humun race, und have left it no
eettled whether one line is more ini
portant than tne others?the put suit
of knowledge scientifically, best
illustrated iu the Hermans; of con?
duct on the side of righteousness,
Been iu tho English, nud tho cultiva?
tion of the sense of beauty aud fit?
ness, particularly as it alTeotfl
social bio aud manners, best illus
trated by whot the Trench have
achieved in their civilization. Ob
nerving how far they have advanced
ou this last lino of development, tho
American artist understands how hie
country could over have been called
barbarous aud grasps the full mean
ing of "art atmosphere." This, to?
gether with the perfect freedom in
oisposing of his time which could
not be gotten at home even iu Now
\'ork, aro the advantages of study
ing art abroad. On the other hand
the advantages of studying art at
borne aro niuuy aud important.
in the ART BOHOOLS IN PARIS,
often a touoher give3 uo more
thou an hour to Bixty pupils, und
that uo ofteuer thau twice a week.
He very, very rarely takes the
truth or charcoal iu his hand, but
merely lingers a monn nt and his
terribly discouraging criticisms are
hie most frequent, lie ib more than
ftikfily to transfix tho student with
?oute remark like, "Eraee and look
at your model; you arc drawing
from imagination;" or "you will
never do anything at art; yon bad
better go to ploughing." Aud bin
highest praise is "not bad,pas mal."
Again, the student at ttio Beaux
Arts is not infrequently inter?
rupted by a suspension of biB wbolo
olass. for its much as three weeks at
a time, iu punishment tor amiio in?
credible prnuk. The one played oil
Little Billee in Trilby is a true aud
unexaggerated example. The na?
tive Btudeots, who expect to devote
all their livos to the study of art,
do not so much mind such u suspen?
sion, but conditions are very ditl'er
ont with tho American student and
in no sense doos be feel that ho can
afford it. It is of tue greuiest im
portonce that students Htiould get a
thorough training iu tho rudiments
of art before going abroad. If they
are wise they will
Htjay all the foundations herb
aud study just as far as possible
They cau do this, for tho best artists
uiTeo that just as good instruction
is to bo had iu America as in France,
Another reason for lou^ and thor?
ough study iu the United Statos be?
fore going abroad has its priuciplu
iu the old truism, "Imitation is
suicide," It was demonstrated at
tho World's Fair that Americau art
has a llavor?a quality of its own ?
as surely as American literature. It
is very important that this quality
should bo retaiued and oultivat
ed, if tho American artist would
achieve high success. If be goes too
early and ^ivo too absolute a wor
ship to foreign art tins quality uiuy
lie lost und replaced by something
never really his own, aud henoe
having uo Kreut aud original power,
lie bus to leurn not to decry Amen
cau art, us it is necessarily his own,
and any other, however beautiful, is
..nly borrowed aud oxotic so far us
ho is concerned.

THE SCHOOL BOOK QOESTION
Gov. O'Ferralland Attorney General
Scott Again Reply to the Pilot.
"The Virginia School Book Ques?
tion" is tho titlo of a pamphlet just
frotu the profs. It contuins tho re?
plies of Gov. O'Ferrall and Attorney
Gouerul Scott to tho charges made
by tho Norfolk Pilot that tho public
school book list for 1894 was adopt?
ed by the Board of Education with
"indecent aud unseemly baste."
Tho tirst reply wus made Docem
ber 27, 1894. Tho maiu object of
this pap<r was to provo that no
changes wero made iu tho school
book list, because the superinten?
dents or tho various counties aud
cities of the State were practically
uuanimous in their reports that the
oxuting list was satisfactory und no
changes wer? desired.
Tho pamphlet contains, also, a
second reply, under tho date of
February 1 -itb, ls;*fj, which gives
the result of an examination to as?
certain whether tbe patrons of Vir?
ginia schools are paying uioro for
books than tho patrons of the
schools iu other States. They pro
sent a schedule of prices iu tho va?
rious States nud Territories with
which the American Book Company
and tho University Publishing Com
pany have coutraets. This hat only
shows three books which reach tho
children at lower prices thau in Vir
giuia?two in Maryland und ono in
West Virginia?and of these thoy
gave a bountiful explanation.
Inclosing, the reply says: "We
have made to you a full nud com
plete statement, withholding noth?
ing, The facts demonstrate that it
is not trito that 'Virginia has been
outrageously defrauded,' nud that
her coutraets for school books are
'so iniquitous, nnd ttie disorimioa
tion against her ho obvious und out
rogeous as to hear upon their faces
tho badges of fraud and corruption,'
as has been charged. Iu our investi?
gation wo have found no discrimina?
