To Be Put On Display
Today In Alumni Hall,
By SYLVIA MOORE #
Modern art, to the layman, is a
at unfathomed enigma, shrouded
the veil of mystery and enveloped
a cloud of ignorance. It is to dis-
1 this feeling y that a Daily re-
'ter with the assistance of iMss
elaide Adams of the fine arts de-
timent, has undertaken to trace the
elopment of the style, form and
hnique of the masters from the
iod when the art of tainting was
its infancy to the present days.
en dada, surrealism and other
antasmagoria leave one bewildered
i lost.
n connection with this series, Miss
a-s and Miss Helen B. Hall, fine
s librarian, have offered to ar-
ge an exhibit each week illustrat-
the current article. Today and
torrow in Room A, Alumni Mem-
il Hall, several paintings of the
rentine period will be on display.
'he beginnings of modern art may
found in the paintings of the
rentine artists. The painter of
14th century had to be a jack-of-
trades. The great Florentine ar-
was a thinker; often he was a1

i fresco, one mis-stroke meant

day's work with a single mistake.
iderful effects were achieved
augh this careful planning.

and apprentice
Giotto began to find himself as an
artist around 1300. He broadened and
refined his art at Rome, changing
his early method of rambling nar-
rative for a concise and massive
style showing the influence of an-
tiquity.
Giotto's best work is grouped in
three cycles: The St. Francis panels
in Assisi; the Life of the Virgin and
Christ in the Arena Chapel at Padua;
and the St. Francis panels in the
church of St. Croce, Florence.
The frist group shows the early de-
velopment of the artist. He realized
that to suggest space emphasis must
.be laid upon mass. This principle is'
applied in the Life of the Virgin and
Christ. Having achieved this, Giotto
was not quite so strenuous in the
third group, and made his figures a
little less short and squat than those
at Padua.
Perhaps the climax of his work was
his design for the flower-like bell
tower beside the Church of Our Lady
of the Flower in Florence. The tow-
er still stands uncomipleted, for
death overtook the great artist before
he could finish the task.
This man had made Italian paint-
ing almost single-handed. He had
given life and warmth to the cold re-
form of the Roman painters. His
wonderful power pushes the expres-
sion of every emotion to the utmost
and stops there. He forecast and led
the way into every manner of real-
istic figure painting.
