Admission—Saturdays and Sundays free, other days 25 cents. Children and teachers are free. By KATHLEEN McKEE. The long cool galleries of the John Herron Art Institute afford a refuge ; from the scorching sun of August days. The delicate lines of the Chinese and r Oriental paintings belonging to Mrs. C. .1. Blair of New York City afford the sum mer visitor outlet for admiration. These, with the group of' works by American artists which have been lent to the institute by George C. Calvert of 1 this city, and the paintings by old mas ters, the property of William Dudley Foulke of Richmond, Ind., will remain on exhibition until the end of the month. A choice collection of rare antique china belonging to Mrs. J. H. Weaver will nlso be on display until the fall exhibi tion opens. There are a number of interesting “summery” pieces of carved ivories in the collection of Mrs. Kate McGowan. GROUP OF FANS EXCITES INTEREST. A group of fans from all parts of the world, some of many decades past, wlil excite the visitor's interest. We can not but wonder as we gaze at the elaborate handpainting and carved ivory work what stories of olden epurt lie behind. One shows a complex painting of de votional figures, another delightfully painted flowers. One little fan merely bears a scroll design of blue forget-me-nots. Then there is a diminutive doll on which is painted a cunning bit of scen ery. There are some which are evidently of the 1500-1600 period. One shows numerous figures in con trasting postures, with a mother-of-pearl handle exquisitely carved. The delicate scroll work so popular In that period is also prominent in the fan paintings. One of exceptional value shows a rose with each tiny petal done in gold scroll. Then there are ivories, touched with the yellow of age. Examples of beautiful carying are shown in the two rosaries inlaid with mother-of-pearl. A small caning of a woman folds back to reveal a myriad of tiny carved figures in devotional attitudes. Two Ivories eggllke in shape hye interior carvings of multitudinous re ligious figures. The delicacy of these figures, which are almost too tiny to handle, is the remarkable feature. Snuff boxes whose paintings and carv ings tell the visitor the era are quits a tractive. A number of quaint portrait minia tures are also included In Mrs. Mc- Gowan's collections. INDIAN, MEXICAN BASKETRT SHOWN. Wicker and basketry will always in duce a feeling of coolness in the spec tator. and a group of Indian, Mexican and South American basketry in Mrs. McGowan's loan make a pleasing addi tion to her other antiques. The closeness with which the material is woven forms a strong contrast to the loseiy woven basketry of the present day. It was possible to carry water a great distance in these baskets, and wait* might be boiled In them by using hot stones. •*®i They are doubly valuable since the art of weaving has died with their makers. The unintelligible figures are even more than artistic. Although the baskets are mostly com binations of light and dark brown, they are not monotonous. Occasionally there is a touch of red and green where the weaver desired a variety. In comparison with our modern baskets these primitive ones seem made of cast iron. Delft and Dresden cups and saucers, luster pitchers and old English glasses are more than attractive. In fact, the rare specimens of china and glassware in the west room of the institute are drawing more visitors than the paintings AMUSEMENTS. MURAT Last 3 Times ■LAST MAT.
