First Adequate Showing of Miss
Emily McMillan's Pictures.
Her Sitters Have Been Among the
Best Known People— Mrs. Van
Cleve** Gracious Llkenesn.
Aii art event of importance and interest
was the exhibition of portraits by Miss Emily
McMillan yesterday at the residence of Mr.
and Mrs. Charles J. Martin on Tenth street
S. There were about twenty canvases shown
and they exhibited the artist's work quite
fully, both in its various stages of develop
ment and in the variety of subjects and treat
Miss McMillan belongs to one of the old
families of Minneapolis which is very weil
known. Her art training was received in
New York and Paris, where she studied un
der George De Forrest Brush, Kenyon Cox,
James McNeil Whistler and otijers. yuite re
cently Miss McMillan has had some criticisms
from William Chase which were very com
plimentary. She has spent much time in
study under masters and by herself and has
enjoyed exceptional opportunities in training.
Thes>> she has used conscientiously, diligently
and intelligently. As a result she has ac
quired a firmness and finish of workmanship
that is admirable. Her portraits are full of
character, which is expressed in many subtle
ways, as in the treatment of color and th.?
pose as well as in the drawing of the features
and the expression of the face. Generally
epeaking, her portraits are simple and direct,
without many or striking accessories or con
spicuous costuming. She has expended her
whole arc upon seeking to express the charac
ter of the sitter aud suboidinating everything
else to that. She has a delicate sense of
color and her pictures are harmonious and
attractive, with delightful and effective con
trasts that are never harsh or theatrical.
Mis 3 McMillan has had among her sitters
some of the best-known people of the city,
and nearly all of th© faces looking out from
the canvases were familiar ones to the guests
invited to see them to-day. This is unfortu
nate in one way, for It emphasizes unduly
the question of the likeness, and this is not to
be lightly decided upon a casual view. The
picture that at first has an element of unfa
miliarity to those who knew the sitter well
may express the strongest characteristic of
the Individual. However, this may never
have Impressed the observation of the aver
age friend, and It takes an acquaintance with
the picture to bring the truth of the portrlat
within his recognition.
Miss McMillan has usually caught the like
ness so fully and genuinely that there is no
disappointment on this score, and her por
traits bear the harder test of frequent obser
vation by those having the most intimate
knowledge of the sitters. She has combined
well satisfactory technique, the likeness, and
the finer qualities of artistic interpretation of
individuality. It is noticeable that her great
est success has been in the portrayal of the
strong, intellectual face rather than the beau
tiful one, and her portraits of people to whom
life has brought much experience are on the
whole more interesting than her children's
Among her more recent pictures are the
wrtraits of Mrs. Martin, Mrs. E, J. Phelps
and J. T. Wyman. The contrast of these with
her earlier work is interesting and encoura
ging, for they reveal noticeable gains -in
drawing, color and thought. Mra. Martin is
represented in a standing three-quarters
length picture of dignified pose and careful
drawing. The plain pink gown hangs in
simple folds and is softened by a lace bertha
about the shoulders with long enda in front.
Mra. Phelps' picture shows a seated figure
enveloped in a large, loose black satin ooat.
whose soft gray fur collar and lining partly
frame the face becomingly. Th« color scheme
is very subdued but attractive.

the '.'istorical portraits which the society is
collecting, and his attention was directed to
this portrait, for no more appropriate place
than this collection could be found to house
It, as Mrs. Van Cleve is pre-eminent In the
historical annals of the state.
In the judgment of many, the portraits of
Professor and Mrs. Folwell mark the highest
attainment in Miss McMillan's art, and it is
quite certain that more characteristic and
satisfactory portraits could hardly be hoped
for. They are similar in treatment and color
scheme, which is dark and rich, and almost
wholly without accessories. A portrait of Mr.
Goodhue is very natural and easy. In, the
portraits of Mrs. Sage and Mr. Culbertson
white hair is made a crowning glory and
brings out much pleasing color in the faces.
There is an interesting group of young
women, each of which has a special charm,
although these are more uneven in quality
thau those mentioned. They are iv higher
color keys, the costuming being light and
youthful. This group includes a portrait of
Mrs. Semple which has been treated in the
typical English manner with a rich drapery
and landscape background, and portraits of
Miss Northrop, Miss Margaret McMillan, Mrs.
Frances Henry and Mrs. L. K. Hull. The
latter is a paste! and is especially pleasing in
color. The group of children includes por-

The exhibition had its social side, and the
guests were received by Mrs, Martin and
Miss McMillan. The house was decorated
simply with cut flowers in tall vases and
jars, white and green being used chiefly. In
the dining-room Russian tea and punch were
served at email tables by Misses Margaret
McMillan and Elsie Hardenburgh in the aft
ernoon and by Misses Hastings, Moukon a:id
Phelps in the evening.
The pictures were hung in all of the ma*n
rooms down stairs, which had been fitte-.i
with special electric lights for the purpose
of showing them suitably. It seems a great
pity that the exhibition could not have Been
more general than is possible In a privai"
house, as it is one which would Interest *nd
gratify all interested in art.
