“Twenty-second international, just ended, success.
Good exhibits are planned
By Penelope Redd.
The successful twenty-second international exhibition just closed completes one of the most interesting years in the history of Carnegie Institute. Commencing with the Garden exhibition, which was shown a year ago, the department of fine arts has shown collections of high standard to a greater number than in any single year since the foundation of the institute.
The Garden show brought about the pooling of the resources of the various departments, fine arts, museum and library, and the result was an exhibition, beautiful, instructive and stimulating.
The impetus given by the Garden show was sustained by the subsequent exhibition arranged for the autumn. On reviewing the exhibition activities of the department of fine arts, one discovers that 18 exhibitions were held under the auspices of the department, three by outside organizations and one in co-operation with the museum.
These exhibitions ranged from the special exhibition of George Bellows to engravings of the fifteenth century. Two distinguished memorial exhibitions were held—those of Robert Blum and William Chase. The precedent of the exhibition of paintings by painters of a particular city, established the previous year by the Boston group, was continued by the showing of works by artists resident in Philadelphia. The idea will probably be used again this season. The study show where sketches were exhibited was invaluable to the students in the city, since the first thoughts in pant of representative artists are rarely accessible to the public. Another departure was the Pittsburgh and contemporary artists’ collection, which will probably be repeated this season by the selection of a group of paintings from the exhibition of the Associated Artists and showing them with an equal number of American paintings by well-known men. The stained glass exhibit was one of the most ambitious of its kind ever shown in the country.
All of these exhibitions led up to the climax of the international with its sympathetically modern supplementary shows, the English wood cuts and the foreign drawings and etchings.
While the institute will not begin its active exhibition season until autumn, it plans at least two splendid exhibitions in those of Emil Carlsen and Winslow Homer, the dates of which will be announced later.”
