Let the object- not the artist -do the teaching

S GC (3)SEIATS OPEN

By NVANDA IPANATIELA
In ail odd s'ort of way, often
the very talent of an artist does
an injustice to his creation. For
upon leaving air exhibit it is
often the spirit of the artist,
and an admiration for his talent
that is remembered-.-not an ad-
miration for the painting itself'.
Quite the opposite case is
true with "Connoisseur's Col-
lection." currently on display at
the University's Art Museum.
The collection, is taken from
over 1300 works in the estate
of the late Paul L. Grigaut, who
was an associate director of the
museum and professor in the
art history department. Anid to
say that the collection stands
as a tribute to one man's stu-
died knowledge would be to
misunderstand the intent of the
exhibit. Rather, it reflects an
appreciation by one man for the'
works themselves, their form,
their delicacy.
There is no one "school" or
period, no one medium or favor-
ed artists, that guided Mr. Gri-
guat's selection. Rather, it seems
Mr. Grigaut sought to find ob-
jects which had the< power to
stimulate a curiousity a b o u t
themselves--apart from their
tine, creator, or ideas.
While the collection contains
a wide variety of mediums---
painting, ceramics, lithographs
and etchings-amassed from al-
most all times-early China,
19th century Arherica and 14th
century Europe-there are mark -
ed similarities which character-

ize the exhibition. Few of the
objects explode with a life that
goes beyond the canvas. All re-
flect a preoccuptio~n with things
controlled and things delicate--
whether it be a portion of a
Biblical manuscript or a satirical
etching of Voltaire.
In this view, the extensive
display of 17th and 18th cen-
utry etchings and engravings,
best express this fascination.
Not only is each painistaking
in detail, but the subjects chosen
-the majestic delicacy of lace
and wigs-exploit the possibili-
ties of this medium. Possibly the
most entertaining is Jean Hubers
"Etchings of Voltaire." In muted
tones, over twenty faces of Vol-
taire are drawnI and redrawn,
each a bit different: one face
a bit mad, another a little
whimsical, some sublime, some
satirical.
Johann Gerog Pintz's "View
of Palana Interior" is almost
maddening in its precision.
Each line, each cure, each twist
of an ornate Baroque drawing
room is intensifier) by its ac-
curate ireproduction,
In an almost surprising con-
trast to the muted tones and
tight detail of the collection are
the expansive lithographs and
serigraphs of Maholy-Nagy, Paul
Klee, and Ferdinand Leger.
While surprisingly bright and
spacious they in essence, sum-
marize the whole exhibit. For'
in a sense, they are merely
blow-ups of portions of the pre-
cise etchings. And they extract
the linear balance and symmetry
is squeezed into every line of
the etchings.
