Work of 35 artists shown in Macbeth-Milch exhibit at Dayton Art Institute

One of the most important art exhibits of the year opened Wednesday at the Dayton Art Institute when members of the organization joined for a first view of the Macbeth-Milch circuit exhibition of contemporary American paintings which is here in charge of Louis Bliss Gillet of New York.

Such names as Bruce Crane, Gifford Beal, Charles H. Davis, Max Bohm, Willard Metcalf and Emil Carlson [sic] are on the list of 35 artists responsible for the 39 paintings which make up the show. Mr. Davis is represented by winter, spring and summer landscapes. Carl Lawless has two pictures in the exhibit, as has Chauncey F. Ryder who is happily known in Dayton through the landscape piece carrying his signature in the Art Institute’s permanent collection.

Landscape, marine views, street scenes, heads and figure pieces, architectural compositions, still life are all included in subject matter of the paintings. It is a tribute to the transcendent skill and insight of the late Emil Carlsen [Carlsen was not dead but it is unclear why the author thought he was] that his group of a black bottle, a copper kettle and three sprigs of garlic, backed by profound shadow, attracted more admiration at the Wednesday opening than did any other of the 39 pieces shown.

Neither of the Ryder paintings seemed to those at the Wednesday opening to compare in charm with the composition of green meadow and Lombardy poplars by this painter which the institute owns. Nor did Ivan Olinsky’s Rose of Sharon excite the admiration which has been given to the Dayton-owned Leonore in a Russian Blouse by this Americanized Russian.

Gifford Beal’s May-Day, Central Park and Max Bohm’s Ancient Seaport took second and third place in the favor of competent observers when the first view opened. An informal Sunday afternoon talk by Mr. Gillet on the subject of the exhibition will be open to all interested persons and will begin at 3:30 o’clock at the Art Institute.”
