American paintings coming to eugene

Fund guarantees display of works of art

Announcement was made yesterday by Allen Eaton that the collection of famous paintings to bring which to Eugene he has been raised to warrant the exhibition here.

“Through the valuable co-operation of the Register, with the interest and industry of a number of people,” announced Mr. Eaton, “we have been able to raise money to bring to Eugene the collection of oil paintings by 16 American artists that have been sent to some of the largest cities in the western part of the United States. I think our people have done very well in this undertaking but not quite well enough. We have raised enough money to bring the pictures here for a matter of only two or three days.

“To those who may not have seen a former announcement I want to explain that this is a collection of paintings made by the American Federation of Arts consisting of one each of 16 of our best living American painters. The purpose of it is entirely educational, that is to bring to the attention of Americans the work that is being done by American artists. If it were not for the organization and philanthropy of the American Federation of Arts it would be impossible to secure such an exhibition of picture for Eugene at a cost of less than $1000. The pictures include landscapes, marines, still life and portraits, and the list of painters is headed by John W. Alexander, whose picture Primrose valued at $5000, is well worth going a long way to see. The other artists represented are Frank W. Benson, Emil Carlsen, William Chase, Colin Campbell Cooper, Louise Cox, Bruce Crane, Charles Warren Eaton, Ben Foster, Childe Hassam, Leonard Ochtman, Edward W. Redfield, Gardner Simons, Robert Vonnoh, J. Alden Weir, Frederick Ballard Williams. The collection is valued at approximately $27,000. It is the best opportunity that we have ever had or probably will have for many years to study the work of leading American painters.””
