A Movement on Foot to Improve
Our Art Collection.
An article in last Monday's Free
Press, remarking on the deficiencies
of the University in the way of ap-
paratus for the study of art, points
out the attempts now being made by
certain members of the faculty to
supply these deficiencies. Mention
is made of Prof. D'Ooge's stereopti-
can views and of the photographs
which Prof. Kelsey is ordering for,
the Frieze Memorial Collection, and
especial attention is called to the
movement which Prof. Scott has set
on foot to collect material for the
study of the Old Masters.
To illustrate his lectures on the
philosophy of art, Prof. Scott, after
the Christmas vacation, will give his
class in esthetics a series of talks on
the painters Leonardo da Vinci and
Michael Angelo. A small sum
granted by the University has been
spent in securing reproductions of
paintings by these masters, and about
sixty photographs are now on their
way from Florence and Paris. They
will include representations of the
entire interior of the Sistine Chapel
at Rome, the decoration of whichj
forms Michael Angelo's most cele-
brated work. The large panels on
the ceiling will be represented by
photographs of the largest size, and
twenty-five smaller photographs will
afford means of studying the minuter
features. The various groups which
make up the Last Judgment are
shown in a series of pictures.
Of reproductions of Leonardo's
paintings the following are the most
important of those that have been
ordered: The Adoration of the Magi,
the Last Supper, the Anunciation,
the Portrait of himself, the Baptism
(by Veroccaio) with Leonardo's An-
gels, a Study of a Youth, and the
famous Mona Lisa. The last is a
carbon photograph from Braunt &
Co., Paris, and promises to be
extraordinarily fine.
With the aid of a complete collec-
tion of such photographs and of
reproductions by the various modern
"processes," Prof. Scott thinks it
will be possible to study the painters
of certain periods of the Renaissance
about as successfully in Ann Arbor
as in the European galleries. A very
few hundred dollars not expended
for show but laid out in a systematic

way so as to illustrate one phase of
the philosophy of art, would be
worth, for scientific study of theC
subject, almost more than the entire
contents of our present art museum.
It is Prof. Scott's purpose to make a
collection of this sort. To raise
funds he proposes to appeal to the
alumni and friends of the University
who are interested in the study of
art. Many promises of help have
already been obtained, and as the
scheme will be pushed vigorously,
there can be little doubt of the final
