Two crisp portraits by Ober-
hardt deserve special mention. A
charcoal so simple in use and yet
so effective is inspiring. Each char--
acter is vivid and concise. Each
stroke tells a part of the story.
In water color there is more va-
riety. Raleigh and Gruger are, as
is expected, outstanding in bril-
liance of expression. Henry Ral-
eigh could very easily Ie the guid-
ing star of young talent in the
field. His types are superb, his hu-
mour subtle, and his use of media
1 superb. In the one illustration al-j
lowed us he chooses to work with
dry brush and water color. The
forms round and sway under his
brush and the secret of success in
illustrating in brush distinctly
shows in his silhouetting. F. R.
Gruger refuses to let action inter-
fere with the pale determination
and gentility of his characters.
That unity of character is perhaps
the greatest criticism of his work.
The one water color and pencil
technique is a star for young archi-
tects to set their technical eyes I
upon.
Sincere unforced simplicity sets
one of Haitland's advertisements,
a scene with a rhapsodic young
lady at the piano. Benda goes flat
characteristically with a charcoal
t and color treatment. Somehow it 1
seems to me that a Hopi snake
dance should carry more than a
long-eyed stylistic emotion. For the
Javenese dance it is in good form.
George Illian can be geometric and
dynamic with impunity because of
his care in choosing the subjects
and his habit of doing them in sub-
dued washes of clear color. Gar-
ret Price is represented with a very
typical cover for Life. In pen andM
ink they run to humour and cari-
cature. Ralph Barton of the New
Yorker, and whatever, paints a
knockout caricature of the potent
American woman in his Machinal.
Gluyas Williams is side splitting in
his subtle Benchley humour; while I
the Levy caricature of Alexander
Woolcott is mildly ridiculous. Ho-
ward Willard showing a forceful
play of line and form with his able
pen is in direct contrast to florid
Charles Dana Gibson whom you
may like. He is insipidly moral,
dotingly stolid, and unconvincingly 1
flashy..
Naturally there is much that is
i bad in this show; we have simply
disregarded that minority. But we
do hold a brief for the support of
American illustration. The very
exigencies of the profession pre-
vent the- illustrator from wander- j
ing into the bogs of abstract in-
