violent reds again appear, even in,
new scenes, but with continually increasing
decorative command. Vincent
Canada's and Jennings Tofel's
landscapes are also decorative. In
fact the decorative element is to the
fore throughout the rooms. Mr. Tofel
seems to gain in sureness without losing
any of his subtlety.
The sculptors are W. Lehmbruck,
Robert Laurent and Alfeo Faggi. Mr.
Faggi keeps the same qualified position
that he had. Some of his things
have real poetic promise and others
are depressing beyond words. His

his present best. The face is fine,
sensitive and poetically suggestive.
The "Dante" and the "R. E. Jones" are
pretentious and foolish. Mr. Faggl has
almost no technic to speak of and
hopes to Impress by spiritual force
alone. This is all very well, and sometimes
succeeds, but never unless the
artist be sincere. Fake spirituality is
Arthur Pope Shows
Charming Water Colors
The water colors by Arthur Pope,
now on view In the Ehrlch Galleries,
will be found agreeable by most people.
Most of them, done In a sabbatical
year's travel In Europe, Mr.
l*bpe being of the Fine Arts Division
of Harvard Unverslty. have been executed
from a purpocely restricted
palette, without, however, much restriction
to the artist's expression.
Mr. Pope Is perhaps more modest
tfcan he need be. He makes no pretentions
to bravura and shuns tricks
and ostentation. Nevertheless, he has
an eye for broad effects. Is sure In
composition, and generally he is quite
at ease. There Is at times a shade of
dryness, with crisp touches that give
almost an etching quality to the drawings
but the esthetics are sill there
And the water colors are such that
people of taste can take enduring
pleasure In them.
But New Yorkers of taste, it seems,
are not to be permitted to own them,
;?s all the collection Is to be taken back
to Boston. The attraction of the work
is Increased by the fact that Mr. Pope i
has lingered most before spots In ,
Rome and Paris that seem particularly
dear to Americans and he has
rendered them in a?well a gentle- ;
manly way. It also ought to be added
that he has a genuine feeling for the
medium of water color.
At the same time the Ehrtch Galleries
are showing a collection of
flower paintings In ells by American
artists. Among them are Interesting

Andrew Dasburg's
Cubistic Picture
TThs Absence of Edith Dale." by
Andrew Dasburg, a cublstlo picture that
caused a considerable disturbance some
years ago when It was shown with
other modem pictures In an exhibition
sit the National Arts Club, suddenly reappeared
during the last week In the
show window of Lord & Taylor's. At
the National Arts Club there were two
pictures by Mr. Dasburg, "The Presence
ht" and "The Absence of " the
'lady's real name being then used Instead
of the "Edith Dale," under which
ilhe emerges brilliantly In the new novel

'There was & ripple of amused laugh-'

them arose. Instead a rather massive I
female, utterly unknown to me, with as
many rows cf gold braid across herj
chest as a French Academician, a porter :
at the Credit Lyonnats or a soldier In |
the army of the Prince of Monaco,
stood on her feet.
"What, exactly, would you like to'
know?" she asked In a voice In which j
authority and confidence were equal'
"I'd like to know everything, but I'd
bo satisfied with anything. What, for
instance, is the meaning of that picture?"
She pointed to Andrew Dasburg's "The
Absence of Edith Dale," a cubistic contribution
to aesthetic production In several
planes and the colors of red, yellow
and blue.
The tnasslve lady began with some
hesitation. Her confidence had not deserted
her, but she seemed to be searching
for the precise words.
"Well," she said, "that picture le the
lclnd of picture that grlves pleasure to
the kind of people who like that kind
of picture. The arrangement of planes
and colors Is very satisfying. Perhaps
I could explain It to you In terms of
music. Do you understand the terminology
of music?"
"Not at all," snapped the little
woman with the eyeglasses.
The massive lady seemed gratified and
continued: "In that case, you may have
difficulty In following me, but If you

Is In the room, the artist who
painted the picture. Won't you explain
the picture, Mr. Dasburg?"
Andrew, very much amused, did not
take the trouble to rise.
"The picture Is there," he said. "You
can look at It." Then, after a pause, he
added: "Henry James says, "Woe In the
esthetic line, to any example that
requires the escort of a precept,' It Is
like a guest arriving to dine accompanied
by constables."
"Then," ?Rld the little lady solemnly,
"woe to that picture, woe to It, for It
certainly requires the escort of precept."
The entire art world, no doubt, will
feel obl'ged to talk about "Peter Whiffle*'
because of Its faithful, almost
phonographic, record of the doings at
ICdlth Dale's. The entire art world
buzzed at the time that these proceedings
were proceeding, and this record is
vivid enough to have all of the old instigation.
The book is remarkable, too,
for several other reasons, one of them
being that It marks the entrance of modern
a-t Into American literature.
The writers of the day have shown
an extraordinary fear of committing
themselves upon questions of art or
music and when they have desired to
put forward an appearance of culture
have been obliged to limit themselves
to quotations from the poets. Culture
Is not exclusively literary, however, and

Notes and Activities
In the World of Art
Th? Joseph Brummer Galleries are
given up to an exhibition ot oils water
colors and drawings of Gus Mager. Mr.
Mager has a curious talent, which is
undeniable but slow to make Its way.
For one thing Mr. Mager makes no
concessions to the public. There he Is
right. It is for th.3 puollc to coma to the
painter, not for tho painter to try propitiating

years, always In the events that had a

and has been commended
more times than not. Still, he has seldom
aroused violent (alk. This Is because,
no doubt, there la nothing violently
new or challenging in his style.

The Kraushaar Galleries are showing
tho new oils by Salvatore Anthony Guarlno.
Mr. Guarlno will be remembered
for his monotypes previously shown and

for a meeting In the moonlight,

Hayley Lever, and Malcolm Parcel!. The
first two occupy a gallery Jointly, without
too marked a clash of style. Mr.
Lever, who Is already well known here
for large paintings of tho sea as seen
| from St. Ives. England, Is proven by this
| exhibition to be better In works of small
dimensions. He likes to wield a hefty
brush, a la Vincent Van Gogh, but aU
the same ho loses himself better In the
j smaller things. The view "From West
j Gloucester" has much feeling In it and
: no empty painting at all. The "St.
' Michaels, Maryland," the "Hunter," and
tho "Lower New York" are also successful.
Mr. rrleseke'B work still remains
disturbingly reminiscent. His young
woman In a "Blue Kimono" looks at herself
in the mirror in the time-honored
way, but to make such a "worked"
theme pass there must be a prodigious
amount of virtuosity.
His studies of children are attractive;
but there again they would be more Attractive
if we had not seen previously
tho Mary Cassatta that they resemble.
Mr. Parcell is having a one-man show
for the tirst time and Is meeting with
popular appreciation. As why should
he not. since he paints satyrs swinging
nymphs, the said nymphs being draped
slightly with the fashionable gauze of
the moment?

need more industrial art schools, and1
especially need an Industrial art rnu- i
seum. If we are to meet the competi- |
. tion of other countries In the artcraft
markets of the world.

Henschol of M. Knoedler & Co. A
national characteristic of line and color

that It 1b purely Imitative of our forerunners
Is to beg the question and
