“THE WINTER EXHIBITION OF THE NATIONAL ACADEMY OF DESIGN : IN THE FINE ARTS BUILDING, NEW YORK CITY.
A brief historical sketch of the Academy, with reproductions from a number of paintings in the Exhibition just held, accompanied by commentary note.
The National Academy is the oldest and strongest Art Association in America, and was founded in November, 1825, when a body of artists and students decided to establish a Drawing Association. They selected fifteen artists from their number who were instructed to choose fifteen others, and these thirty men founded The New Society, which in January, 1826, became known as the National Academy of Design.
Among the original thirty names are those of S. F. B- Morse, the inventor of the telegraph, but who at that time was a painter and sculptor, and who was the first president; Henry Inman, Rembrandt Peale, John Vanderlyn, Thomas Cole, and the last survivor, Thomas S. Cummings, who died in 1894.
During the 82 years since the Academy was founded, nearly all the eminent artists of America have been in some wise connected with it, either as students or as associates, in spite of the fact that in 1877 a very serious disruption…”
“…dramatic story of the sea, done with a bigness and directness and a marine flavor that no other living marine painter quite equals. The Carnegie prize of $500 for the best oil painting in the exhibition by an American artist was awarded to Ben Foster for his Misty Night, and the Proctor Prize for the best portrait went to Wm. T. Smedley for his Dorothy D, Portrait, by Irving R. Wiles, is an extremely happy example of this eminent portraitist’s art. The pose is easy and full of “style” while the handling is superb. Vis-i-vis, by George Barse, Jr., is a beautiful color harmony in blues and lavenders. Most of the charm in the portrait by Childe Hassam is lost in our reproduction owing to its great dependence on color, and only the map of the design remains. Mr. Hassam’s strength lies in his wonderful knowledge of color vibrations, in which he has no superior. His style is what was called the “impressionist school” at one time, but what now is spoken of as the “modern spirit.” and it is a spirit which will assuredly dominate our coming great American School of Painting.
George de Forest Brush showed a Mother and Child such as only he can paint. Little Miss M, by Mrs. Kenyon Cox. is a lovely little doll of a girl very beautifully painted. Albert Sterner showed a fine portrait of a boy and dog. Emil Carlsen was represented by one of his inimitable still life studies. The Cotillion, by H. M. Walcott, is one of his exquisite studies of child life. Tree Group, by Gustave Cimiotti, Jr. is not a representative canvas of this artist, who is one of our strongest painters among the younger men. Robert Henri is represented by several of his boldly painted canvases of Spanish flavor.”
