November Burlington, In
soms extremely Interesting
reminiscences of his dead friend Derail,
goes to the length of saying that the
painter was Impeccably polite, though
ho admits In another place that the
chief characteristic was "a bearlike
sense of fun." Ho says:
"Or brusquerles that were bon en
fant hints, by a man of Impeccable po
liteness, was the famous 'Kst-ce que
nous vous dernngeons?' 'Beaucoup.' If
the greatest painter of the age, who
happens not to keep a footman, may
not, In broad daylight, Hay that ho is
occupied, when, In CIoiTh name, la It
proposed that ho should paint?"
"Much useless Ink has been spilt by
journalists on the subject of Dcgas's
bruquer!o. In nil the years I knew
him I have known of two Instances
only of severity In his conduct to'
friends. In the one cose a writer had
mentioned In print an net of generosity
on the part of Degas, which Inevitably
conveyed a reflection upon a third per
son. Degas considered this a public
betrayal of his private affairs, outside
the function of u critic, and refused to
sec the writer again. It seems difficult
to sco where tho hardship In this de
cision lay, since Degas, by condonltu:
tho Indiscretion, would have become v
party to It."
"In the other case Degas had sat fo
his portrait on the understanding that
the portrait was not to 'be exhibited or
published during his lifetime. The
painter was free to accept or decline
the condition. He accepted It and
there was a leakage, a reproduction
was published In a magazine. Degas
held the painter responsible and re
fused to see him any more. If friend
ship Is a form of communication, It is
difficult to see how it can be continued
after a discovery that both parties are
not using the same code. Decision in
matters of this kind is rather salutary
than otherwise."
Mr. Slckert's defence of his great
friend's memory Is charmingly loyal,
but there remains In the mind of the
reader of his article a suspicion that
Mr. Slckert has not wholly succeeded
In disproving the charge. Indeed, lie
recites anecdotes himself to which the
word brusquo might be attached by
the thoughtless. Once a word like that
links itself to a great man it is almost
Impossible to make tho vast, stupid
public relinquish It. In the case of
Degas we may be thankful it Is no
worsa a word. Brusquerle Is not a
crime, not really a in.
Call It "bearlike fun" er brusquerle,
it appears that Mr. Slckert and the
other Degas friends liked it, and It re
mains tolerably clear that Degos's ene
mies Clia not HKft It. If rtmlnri nnn nf I
that famous expletive of our Western '
cowboys, which If said "with a smile" !
is taken as a token of affection, but If i
jsuiu eenousiy in answered Willi a hill-
let. Brusquerle Is so clearly the nun
Ishment fitted for tho chastisement of
bores that It is a wonder that more
of our great men are not brusque. And
as to that, "brusque" was the word
that Degas's own brother once used in
describing the artist to me, although
BicKert can dispose of that to his own
satisfaction by haying that both of us
were journalists.
"Degas." writes Slckert. "had the
good nature and hlch spirits that at
tend a sen so of groat power exercised
In the right channel, and therefore
profoundly satisfied. The sensntion
that seemed to me to be perpetual with
him was comparable to the IrrepressI
hlo laugh of the boxer who gets In
blow after blow exactly ns ho Intended.
Ho earned his living largely. His In
tellectual vitality, assimilative and
creative, was so intense and so ab
sorbing that it seemed ho could not
be bothered with any of the expensive
apparatus of vanity and pleasure
which to less generously endowed na
tures seems a necessary compensation.
There was his work, nnd when his eyes
were tired there was conversation,
there were endless rambles through
the streets of Paris nnd long rides in
and on omnibuses. Mo u'alme pas les
fiacres, mol. On peut rcgarder les
gens. On est fait pour se rcgarder les
uns les autres, quol?' And to what
good effect ho did so we all know."
"Dagas, whose perpetual character
istic was a rollicking and somewhat
bear like sense of fun, half regarded,
and half affected to regard me, er
roneously I, fear, ns the typical and
undiluted Englishman much as Ciav
nrnl always addressed hl friend Ward
ns L'Anglais.'
"I had the privilege of seeing con
stantly on terms of affectionate Inti
macy this truly great man. 'J'al
beaucoup change' ho had said, and
whatever draught of grief was to he
mine at his dissolution I drank to 'the
dregs on that day ns I passed down
the Rue Victor Masse nnd saw the
demolished walls of the apartment that
had been since my youth the light
house of my existence. Never again
was I to enter the little anteroom
where Foraln's last published draw
ing was lovingly laid on Its soigne pile.
A polished mahogany table was
affected solely to that use Never
again should I hear old 55oe say 'Mon
sieur Degas est en courses; II ne vn
pas tarder de rentrcr. Vous restores
a diner, n'est-ce pas?' Nor anticipate
the feast of instruction nnd nmuso
ment of which I now hold the grateful
'certainty. Fantln-Latour said to mo
once of Degas, 'C'est un personnngo
trop enselgnant,' thus noting n, defect
which was to me precisely the quality.
" 'Jo voux,' he Bald when ho was
showing us his pastels, 'rcgarder paV
le trou de la serrure.' This expression,
when promptly and duteously retailed
"The Great War,"
by me In London, wus received with
raised hands by the Knglish press.
The somewhat excusable prurience of
our Puritans could not conceive of
anything being seen through n key
hole but indecencies, ami on, the
strength of this subjective and
mathematically erroneous opinion
Degas was promptly classified as a
pomogrupher." '
That tho modern Kngllsh Puritans
can swerve from their strict principles
a easily as did their Cromwelllan
prototypes to the laxity of Charles the i
Second's Court Is well enough Illus
trated by the above citation of Mr. 1
SlckertV, for only a short while apo j
wo beheld all London adoring Synge's
explanation as to whero he got the
cadences of "The Playboy" "I lis
tened for them at keyholes." Mr.
YeaU and Mr. Synge had all the
young writers In England listening at
the Tteyhules until the war broke out
and they were all ordered off to the I
rront' '
wero walking ono morning ,
down from Montmartro to go to Du-
Kvay nannei snirt, a muffler, ami a
suit that might almost have boon
ready made. 'Co n'est pas,' 1 said,
stopping as one does on the Continent,
'Sir John MtllalH qui so preenterait
Chez Monsieur Agnew fichu coihme
vous 1'etes.' He pulled up with mock
Indignation 'Monsieur, quaml un An
glais veut ecrire unc lettre, 11 se met
dans un costume special, fait pour
ecrlro une lettre, et npros, II ho re
change. Ktre foutu ennime. quatro

again In compliment to my nationality
recite tho legend that appears to imv,.
Impressed him most at Brighton: 'Onil !

glais,' ho once said, 'no Jouo pas lo
comedio pour lo nutres, 11 so la jouo
pour litl-nieme.' '
"The wholehearted ndmlratlon of
Degas seemed," writes Mr. Slckert,
"among the moderns to be given to
Millet, to Ingres and to the earlier
Corot; and Kceno of courso he loved.
Ho hated the 'arty' and oil exaggerated

fie was rond of pointing out the
fundamental error of conception in
Zola's 'L'Oeuvre.' Zola wrecks the
Neo-Innoccnt painter, who is tho hero
of tho novel, on tho rock of a great
synthetic effort, where nrnnorlv in
characterize tho movement he should
have como to disaster on dissipation
or effort, a kind of running to seed in
sketches. Degas was also never tired !
or quoting tho force nnd concision or
Bacon's 'homo nddltus naturae,' thus
putting tho kybosb, by Implication, on
Zola'B lumbering and too often quoted,
'La nature vue-a travers un tempera
ment,' if that is tho phrase."
Mr. Slckert's remlnlscenscs are all
too short. Jlurllnpton must persuade
him to go on with his recollections.
Surely he has not told us tho hnlf.
Mr. Slckert writes with such.caso and
freedom that, his nrtlcles provide an
excellent antidote for most of the mod
ern cant-nnd humbug that pnrndes as
art criticism. And then, too, did vnu
notice the slnng? Mr. Slckert talks
.tmorirfiii much hotter than Lord
Northclllfo it must bo conceded.
Mr. Blrnbaum follows Inst year's
Dulac drawings with n collection of
water colors by Kay Nielsen,- which
are now accessible to tho public In the
Scott nnd Fowlfs Gallery. The new
artist, Nielsen, will be successful, as
was Dulao beforo him. Tho British
famo of Beardsley, Dulac nnd Rack

preface to the catalogue, though first
established, could not interfere with
tho acceptance In London of tho pres
ent candidate for favor. This Is not
surprising to those who know London.
Tho first in tho Hue (In this line
Bcurdsloy) had to knock long ut the

pecially at this season, when every one
will bo clutching at whatever they can

thero'll be a Christmas, Mr. Nielsen's
work will be found consoling. The

Pierrots, the mermaids, even the
"Ghosts Playing at Dice for Their
Souls" all seem like tho night before
This artist has the capacity for tak
ing infinite pains. He spares no
amount of toll upon his drawings, and
his colors, too. are laid on with dlssj
cretlon. Mr. ISIrnbaum's appreciation
of him Is ns follows:
"For tho many disappointments suf
fered on a trip to Copenhagen the
only compensation offered was a
memorable visit to tho brilliant Mme.
Paul Gauguln-inot Tehura of Tahiti,
but his lawful European widow, who
talked amazingly of her eccentric hus
band while puffing uway at strong

''Unlike his granduncie. Prof. Ras

and cndedi by becoming a celebrated
physician, 'the young man had given

Paris from 1904 to 1512 under -lean

soon recognized alike by masters and

"Ho was wisely advised to abandon
more ambitious and tedlus fields and
cultivate his special gifts, nnd we find
h!s originality first revealing Itself In
the charming autobiographical pen
and Ink drawings known ns "The

of us who have lived a bohemlan life
Is immediate. They breathe the senti

Notes and Activities
in the World of Art.
To tiik Editor or Tub Sunday Sun
Sir: Allow mo to fay a word to you
In regard to Mr. Henry McBrldc's com
ment on the Gorham show.
Tho American League of Young
Sculptors Is nn Incorporated organiza
tion of young artists who, with tho ex
ception of three members, oro working
lractically nil of those young fel
lows ho attacks so remorselessly have
already emerged from the period of
artistic Incubation at the sculptor's
studio. They are In tho incipient stage
of transition nnd much to natural
cause; they more or less reflect the
surroundings of their former ateliers.
Why not? Surroundings have af
fected the greatest of minds. Why
try to destroy ambitious beginnings?
Beginnings havo fooled many a critic,
and history finds a great pastime In
repeating Itself. We were conscious
of our embryonic stago when we uni
fied our efforts for an intercourse of
Ideas and Ideals, for to create a.com
petltlve power to exploit what's In us.
Uphold, at least, our 'league to tho
letter nnd -o thank Mr. McBrlde.
Anthony vb Fiuncisci, President.
"The concluding lino in the above
missive appears to hold out a hope of
first rough criticism should bo re
garded by tho League of Young Sculp
tors as merely a inilcstono in their
careers, and when they shall have
learned to forgive critics they will have
progressed far along tho road toward
professionalism. I am glnd to hear
tho young men havo left tho ateliers.
Indeed I liked all of tho letter of tho
League of Young Sculptors except
that about the Intercourse of ideals.
If you havo ideals, my friends. I
wouldn't exclmnco them for any one
else's if I were you.
In regard to tough criticisms I ought
to remind you that nobody dies of
them. After long search I havo not
found one authenticated rase of a
death from criticism. Keats did not
die or a broken heart, nil the modern
authorities now aver, nor did Chatter
ton, nor Sterne. Did you know that
even the hardy Laurence storno was
onco thought to have died from an un
kind word?
Of George A. Ileum, whose collec
tion Is to bo sold this winter 1- the
American Art Association, Willltwn
notions or London writes:

But whllo Mr, Hcarn sought rare

acteristic ardor of a man whose pas

had leu of the spirit of selfishness.
He gave and lent as freely as he

the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New

throughout the ages. It Is to the
splendid patriotism of such men as
ho that tho Metropolitan Museum of
Fine Arti now worthily ranks with
the grent European galleries, which
have been In process of slow forma
tion for centuries. But It was not
nlone to the Metropolitan Museum
that he was a benefactor, for he ex
tended his generosity to tho Brooklyn
Institute of Arts nnd Sciences and
other art Institutions, and In many
other ways his philanthropy was man
ifested. '

A highly Interesting exhibition of
early Chinese wares Is open In the
galleries of Parish, Watson A Co.. Ltd.
The collection represents tho fruit of
seventeen years intensive work on the
part of H. A. E. Jaehne of Toklo,
Japan, who has done much to bring
the beauty and bigness of the earlier
potteries and porcelains to the atten
tion of the West. To this havo been
added examples from the Adolphe
Grojean collection. The pieces shown
represent examples ot the best work
ot the Chinese potters from the Han
dynasty to the Ming dynasty.
Among the 160 pieces In the cata
logue are:
A bowl of Chun ware, "approached
in splendor of color only by a similar
bowl which was in the throne room of
the Imperial Palace at Pekln a few
years ago. Its glaze has the same
nuance of color on tho inside as on
the outside, a" glowing purply crimson,
slightly dappled with pale blue. This
pleco was undoubtedly made for Im
perial use during the early part of the
Sung dynasty (960-1271")."
A sturdy pottery dog. more than a
foot In length and height, with curled
tall, cocked ears, wide open eyes and
raised head, "no doubt put In a tomb
about 2,000 years ago to guard the
spirit of the dead and to frighten off
any evil spirits. The green glaze, de
composed from long burial, is now
Iridescent nnd shimmers llko silver."
A nine-sided sacrificial wine cup,
with a hollowed baso reticulated so
tha the hot water In which It was
placed mlcht seep through the open
ings and keep the bottom of the cup
and the wine it contained warm. "The
glaze Is a thick, unctuous, gray blue
celadon color nnd its texture would bo
compared to 'massed lard' by the Chi
nese literati."
A pillow, "In all probability mado be
tween tho ninth and twelfth centuries,
and yet. In treatment nnd decorative
quality, having a strong resemblance
to the .best so-called nrts and crafts-1
work ot to-day. It Is Interesting to
note that the square pattern on the
sides is composed of four fleurs-de-lys
drawn In the same conventional man
ner as tho llllies of France."
A gallipot vase, "a wonderful ex
ample of tho bigness, strength and re
finement of the early Chlncso wares.
It was possibly mado for some v,nr
rlor lord, ns tho decoration consists
of halbert nnd broadsword and what
appear to be trappings for harness.
The glaze Is the prototype of tho so
called 'iron rust' variety, which was so
