all eager to praise her little daughter's
,work. Mrs. Johnson states that Nancy
is independent about her work and
will take no suggestions from her.1
I "If she wants leaves blue she makes

Johnson, herself a painter of several
accepted pictures, regrets that the
judges did not hang Nancy's "Night"

Critics and artists alike concede
the sketch "Water" to be a marvel of
impressionistic art. Several older ar-
tists who were present at the exhibi-
ton have praised the skill displayed
" by so young and talented a child.
Clyde E. Burroughs, curator of the
>Arts Institute, classifies "Water" as al-
most post-impressionistic.'
"How did she do it?" exclaims onej
gray-haired , maturer artist. The
critics at the -Arts exhibit were un-
animous in acclaiming little Nancy's
work, and predicting great things for
the future of her art.
Critics agree that "Water" is al-
most perfection in balance and color-
ing, "The sketch is perfectly balanced
from every angle," says one artist,
"You could turn it upside down or
sideways and it would still be balanc-
ed. What will be the limit to her
achievment at the age of 40?" An-
other critic stated that Nancy John-
son was the 'Jeanne d'Arc' of the mod-
ern world of art, introducing a new.
era of impr'essionism.
