Tlie cublstlc paintings by Max Weber
that Iloger Fry- of the Jurllsplon Jfnjo-
tine ndmlred an much In London last
nprlng nre now to be seen In the Ehrlch
Onllerles. Mr. Fry Is himself a cublirt.
nnd although ho and his numerous Lon
don following have not ytt received the
pmet of Paris recognition, nevertheless
his generous and outspoken tribute of
praise to our Max Weber It auro to
awaken echoes here.
Mr. Fry lauded Mr. Webera akin in
design: a writer in tne ljniion 7imes
praised his sons of abstract beauty, nnd
tho London IMtly Ttlroraph nays our
artist "Is ii born colorlet and altogether
a technician of great aubtlety." Prob
ably tho most bitter opponents of cubism
after seeing the present exhibition will
admit that these tributes are deserved,
while still foaming with fury at the artist
for beln a cubist. It Is Impossible to
deny that Mr, Weber's color la ulwayn
oxcellent It is Impossible to deny aim
that tha number of thoso who take pleas
ure In these "modern" pictures Is In
Mr. Weber has exhibited In New TorX
before find some of the pictures now
nhirtvn were seen here. It la a retrospec.
tlve show. Mr. Weber'a admirers will
easily agree that the latest canvases are
the mast Impressive.
5omr Serious Things lo May
In the precocious enrly work the boy
artist was frankly experimenting with
technical problems, getting the famous
"rhythm" that nil cubists Insist upon,
putting colors together prettily nnd mnk.
Itw the des gns "carry" Now that the
artist lins arrived nt rnnn's estate he has
found. In spite of hlirself, some serious
things to say
Tho "Imiglnatlve Portrait of n.
Woman" Is a cubist's Melancholia, a
stern, sad, warning creature, that not
even an opponent to modernism would
be Inclined to laugh at, The woman's
eyes are duplicated nt one, side of her
head as In a succession of mirrors, but
there can be no question of the dignity
of the work.
A picture calleil the "ItaMier" nlso has
a quality so Intense us to 1m almost relig
ious. The line' are quite disintegrated
ird sometimes they nre reiterated, but
tho hplrlt of the painting Is the spirit that
moved Mantegna when drawing a St.
John. To mention so great a name as
Mantegna'a In this connection will sound
flippant to the opponents of the new
KChool, but to the "advanced guard" It
will be Insufficient praise; no wide apart
are now these warrmg factions.
Mr. Weber's finest flight, however, Is
his "Woman and Tents." a subtle and
wholly delightful nrrangement In colors
and line. It Is almost clear enough In
meaning to convert those who are always
insisting that they wish to "understand."
The tents can actually be distinguished
as tents. The face of the woman shows
nn orler.tnl strain; she Is a Persian or
perhaps n Chinese; there Is hint of re
freshment upon a table; there Is, In short,
a general play throughout the picture of
tha Ideas suggested by the tltlo of It.
