Rosa Bonheur 's Life
Anna Klumpke, Formerly of San Francisco,
Publishes Fine Tribute in Beautiful Volume
[Special Correspondence of The Call]
PARIS, Feb. 13. — "The Life and
Works of Rosa Bonheur?" .compiled and
edited by : Ann a Klumpke, formerly of
San Francisco, which has just been
published here, is not alone a beautiful
tribute to the memory of that wonder-,
ful artist, unquestionably brie of the
geniuses of the age. but a book that
affords onedeliglu in its perusal. It
is an edition d«J luxe, the engravings
and entire workmanship being of the
highest order. The preface, in which
Miss Klumpke speaks of her meeting
" and subsequent life with Rosa Bonheur.
is touching in its simplicity and evident
deep feeling of regret for the loss of
so great a light and true a friend.
When Rosa Bonheur died she left her
estate to Miss Kluxnpke.
Anna Klumplce is the third of that
remarkable family of sisters that San
Franoiseo is proud to claim as its own.
The eldest Miss Klumpke is now one
. of the foremost women physicians of
Paris, esteemed alike for her skill and
her many charities. The second is well
"known In the astronomical world.
• Anna, the third. Is a recognized artist
here, while the fourth sister is an ex
cellent vfollnist. All four. are charming,
\u25a0unaffected and simple women, deVoted
io their several callings. Miss Anna
Klumpke spends most of her time in
the suburbs of Paris, where she occu
pies the studio which was formerly
• " Rosa Bonhfur's, coming:, to Paris for
a short time each winter. •-

changes of the modes one thing remains

turn to it as to our sartorial lodestar.

This is the time for renovation, when
we «re anxious not to buy anything
which might not be fashionable a few
weeks hence, but such fears are purely
; imaginary. The good houses are in
possession of the new models, and if

the general pubJic they take good care
that their, customers do not get dresses
..which are not thoroughly up to date.
A plain tailor made coat can be
.freshened up with waistcoat, buttons

L.arg<? hats are being irfade for the
Riviera, which leads us to the belief
that-large heribboned and beplumed
picture hats will not be extinct this J
summer season. The hat of the mo
ment! is a black, affair. . and is most |

time, in fact, , a black hat is indispen
sable to the smart woman, but it must
all be black, we have done with
black hats that are trlmmed.with col
ored feathers. An exception Is made In
favor of white wings or the military

'Many of the curious .specimens now
seen have but a 'short lease of life,
quite evidently. Milliners have Ho feel

Jet .is once more -extremely fashion
able. In fact, a black jetted evening
gown is as indispensable as a black
ha\ to the woman who would be well
dressed, for it Is always- dressy and
elegant and seems suitable for any oc
casion. The revival of jet fringe and
passementeries began with the large
cabuehons of hollow jet> beads as- hat

embroideries of flat tubes of jet on

princess 'gowns is seen.

The wedding of two well known San
Franciscans was that of City Appraiser
Elmer McKean and Miss Grace Rogers
last Sunday afternoon at the residence
of the bride, 851 Treat avenue.
The ceremony was performed by Rev !
G. A. Hough.
The wedding was marked by the
daintiest simplicity as of necessity only,
a home wedding can be. The appoint
ments, however, were carried out with
exquisite taste. The • parlor. In which
the ceremony took place, was profusely
decorated with lilies of the valley and
brido roses. The dining, room, where
supper was served at 7 o'clock, was fa
color scheme in green and white, lilies
of the valley and white hyacinths with
maiden hair fern forming the decora
tions. The hall and stairway were fes
tooned with yellow daffodil*? and jon
quils, while large vases of American
beauty roses were placed In odd nooks
and added a touch of color.
The bride, a beautiful brunette, is the
daughter of N. J. Rogers of this city.
Her wedding gown was .an imported
light pearl gray broadcloth 'dlrectolre.
She carried a shower bouquet of • bride
roses. She was attended bj% the groom's
sister. Miss Ora McKean, as' maid of
honor who was attired In'a/directoire
gown .of an exquisite shade of pink
- The contrast between the; bride and
her. attendant, who is a .strikingly
handsome blonde, formed a : most
charming picture. The groom was at
tended by Charles McKean as best man.
Immediately after the supper the
bride and groom stole a march on their
relatives and friends by slipping away
from the house; unnoticed, escaping fthe
rice and old .slippers which -were : to
have been showered upon them.'
The couple "left for "Los Angeles,
where they will spend a brief
moon. ' Mr. McKean is but 23. years of
jtge and his, bride has just reached her
nineteenth - birthday. -
THE SA^ST FRANCISCO CALL, SUXDA Y, FEBRUARY 14, 1909;
In the Art World
THAT sculpture in small dimensions
is again attracting the eye of '.the
collector Is evidenced by) the num
ber of. examples now being produced
in Europe and in this , country by ar
tists who have returned to this fragile
srnd difficult, art" with a vital joy in
its beauty. Vierthaler in Munich is
producing sm?ill bronzes and achieving
deserved recognition; In. New York-a
young American sculptor. Miss Clara
Hill, is working along: similar '. lines
Rnd has a number of v.-eir modeled sta
tuettes, several quaint and fanciful
conceits in bronze door- knockers and
half a dozen unique figures .in fired
clay, examples of a painstaking, art,
to show 'to those interested in : such
matters during her recent' visit here.
These photographs show Miss Hill's
work to possess original and distinc
tive characteristics. Especially rich in
these qualities is. the charming; sta
tuette of a^llghtly poised dancing girl
on a bronze pedestal with, floating
drapery encircling" her. graceful limbs
and a transparent scarf ;in her hands
flung gayly in.a half circle above her
small and finely modeled head. The
long, sinuous lines of. the slender fig
ure are well proportioned and the ex
traordinary grace, buoyancy and vital
ity of the subject emphasize a sense
of elasticity and movement.
Tlxe artist's work in the figure of a
young lad risen - ; to full height hold
ing'in his outstretched hand a winged
bat which lie scrutinizes with, a mix
ture of uncertainty and curiosity is
modeling at once vivacious and sin
cere. Undeveloped strength is shown
in the photographic reproduction in
which the lines of the figure stand out
boldly, rendered with the utmost sim^
plicity and nicety of elimination.
Miss Hill's most important work thus
far, however, is the bust of Lincoln
wrought in Paris at the time of the
exposition under* the guidance, of St.
Gaudens, her personal friend. ' This
life size bust was" purchased by the
American commission for the purpose
of placing it in the American building
and was afterward reproduced by Tif
fany, who**expressed a preference for
this bust above all others. A special
arrangement has been made by the ar
tist with the United States government
by which the bust may be reproduced
in smaller form as a Lincoln cen
tenary memorial. This reproduction
is made by an entirely new process
which greatly reduces the cost. The
bust is first cast solid in Florentine
stone and then by electrolysis covered
with a heavy bronze patina, the result
being an exact reproduction of the
original, as durable as marble and as
beautiful as bronze. ; The Lincoln his
tory society of New York intends open
ing' negotiations to have the bust
placed in all of the public schools.
Since her arrival in this city Miss
"Hill has been sit work upon a number
of commissions, principally a figure re
lief in bronze in monumental form for
Mrs. Frederick Sharon; a bust of little
Frederick Bruce Pelham, son of the
architect of the Palace hotel, and sev
eral decorative figures and door knock
ers intended for the country home of
a capitalist here. Still another design
is that of a sphere of quizal glass on a
bronze stand of classic shape and de
sign. Miss Hill states that she is as
yet only a student, but the reproduc
tions of her work seen here show that
she has'at least taken the first steps. on
the road to fame.
'.-Excellent atmospheric effects>are Mrs.
Menton's specialty andln;her studio in
Presidio avenue may be 'seen an exam
ple of these in the form of a huge red
wood,* the- 'largest in the California
basin near Santa Cruz. The peculiar
bluish haze characteristic of that part
of the redwood domain envelops tree,
foliage and accessory objects like a
misty veil, penetrating the interstices
of the branches and filling the hollows
of. the 'canyon with blue light. Mrs.
Menton's fine color sense is displayed
in the softened coloring of the redwood
bark which shows none of the disa
greeable violent brick color too often
seen in these redwood pictures, and this
delicately soft effect is still further
increased by the background of fresh
green which grows fainter and fainter
as the eye reaches toward the horizon.
The distance effects in this picture
are singularly satisfying, as they. are
in the second and smaller painting of
a redwood on ' the banks of Waddell
creek near what is known as the gov
ernor's house. In this the warm red
coloring is more In the shade, the sec
ondary light striking the trees on the
opposite side of. the creek, breaking the
continuity of color,, while the foliage Is
so thick. that but little light penetrates
the heavy screen. The slow- flowing
creek is a rich green, owing to the In
tense, reflection of the massed trees,
though the surface light of the sky is
seen in faint. streaks of intermingling
blue in the water. 'i *•
Mrs. Menton thinks she has been the
first artist to sketch: in this particular
grove: Immediately after, the fire she
worked there for two weeks, bringing
back some 'eight or ten studies -of red
woods, water and mountains, the last
of which declares to be of^ almost
inimitable loveliness by reason* of the
wonderful violet and. la vender coloring
of their summits.
A third composition of Mrs. Menton's
is that of Sf»n Miguel r mission. This
picture was painted from memory, and
the deep rich coloring of the old mis
sion, be/ore its recent coat of white
-wash, is given in all its beauty of mel
low yellowish pink. As in the redwood
pictures there is the feeling of air, light
and amplitude of spacing, though per
haps in: comparison with the forest
work a slight touc hof dryness maj* be
apparent. Both, this painting and an
other giving the mission patio, with, a
Franciscan brother standing like la
shadow against the wall, are fullVQf
sentiment and bestow the feeling of the
peace and calm of these quiet retreats
of early .Spanish days; >
The classes in the studio building

man. Gotta rdo Piazzoni: and .Maurice
Del Miie are of interest both to, the
student arid visitor. /Drawing, painting;
illustrating and etching are taught, and'

A rare exhibition of mezzotint en
gravings, comprising translations of the
portrait work of Sir Joshua Reynolds
and prints from the" famous Diberstu
dlprum of Turner^ formed the chief at
traction at Vickery's tlris week. : The
beautiful, art of mezzotint engraving
was fortunate, in reaching its technical
culmination •;-! at the time when j Sir
Joshua Reynolds and the group of won
derful portraitists of his time had just
given to theworld a series of the most
beautiful portraits, of women that- has
over been painted/ The process of
mezzotint with its subtle renderings of
light and shade was peculiarly suited to
translate this portrait art, this group
of lovely women in their equally, lovely
landscape settings; and' before fine
proofs of these transactions | the world
of art- has been moved to wonder
whether the; glory th»at has been a-dded
to Sir Joshua's name through, their
means is not sufficient to balance the
prestige which his name and fame gave
to the school of engravers thus growing
up under his influence and inspira
