Finding of Titian Painting May

T~n, the

AMSTERDAM- --6P)-- An art dis-
covery that would be fabulous if true
-the finding of a hitherto unknown
painting by the 16th century Vene-
tian master, Titian-may have oc-
curred in Amsterdam during the bleak
years of Nazi occupation.
The painting, carefully stored in
the bombproof vault of the Nether-
lands State Museum, has been placed
on private exhibition. The owner, a
long-time student of old masters, is
so convinced that it is authentic that
he is eager to take it personally to
New York for inspecion by experts of
the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
A "Danae"
The painting is a "Danae," a sub-
ject which Titian is known to have
painted at least four times. Three
of the known versions are in museums
in Vienna, Madrid and Leningrad.
The fourth once hung in Naples but
that masterpiece-valued at $500,0001
-is reported to have been stolen by
the Nazis.
According to Greek legend, Danae
was the daughter of the king of Argos,
who, having been warned that her
son would slay him, confined her in a
tower of brass. Zeus descended to
her in a shower of gold. Perseus was

their son and he. after various ad-
ventures including the killing of Me-
dusa, fulfilled the prophecy and caus-
ed his grandfather's death.)
Perhaps Fifth Version
The owner of the Amszerdam paint-
ing, George Scager, formerly a 'cell-
ist with the famous Concertgebouw
Orchestra, does not think his is the
painting stolen by the Nazis in Na-
ples. He is convinced that it is a
hitherto unknown fifth version, pos-
sibly the first that Titian did of the
(Although no new Titians have
been unearthed recently, officials of
the Metropolitan Museum of Art in
New York said it is by no means im-
possible that one may turn up. How-
ever, Titian has remained, more con-
stantly than most masters, a high-
priced painter down through the cen-
turies. The records are more com-
plete in his case than in most, and
new discoveries by other Italian paint-
ers would perhaps be more likely.)

'Spruce Up' at



nva ion

Within three weeks after the Unit-
ed States invaded the Philippines,
said Sgt. Donn Munson in a story
in the July issue of "She" Magazine,
personal appearance among the wo-
men improved 1,000 per cent.
Starved for clothes for nearly three
years by the domineering Japs who
burned their homes, their clothes and
other personal possessions, the wo-
men of the Islands were reduced lit-
terally to rags. Now, from the GI's,
they soon gathered material for new
dresses and smart blouses.
In a land stripped of all the com-
forts of living and of cloth in partic-
ular, the most amazing creations
poured forth from the humble palm-
thatched homes of the girls. Nearly
every fifth house contained an an-'
cient, but serviceable, manually-op-
erated sewing machine.
From the kit bags of soldiers came
needles and thread and, almost over-
night, discarded khaki trousers,
shirts, mattress covers and pieces of
discarded parachute silk were trans-
formed into striking ensembles.
Many a woman thinks she bought
a gown for a ridiculous price when
in reality she bought it for an absurd

Fashion conscious gals are quietly!
going berserk right about now tryingI
to keep up with the new trends an-,
nounced daily at the New York fa-
shion showings. Writers who de-
scribed the fall silhouette early in
the season have found themselves
out on the proverbial limb and are
now having to eat their words.
There is no fall silhouette. Instead,
there are several completely differ-
ent trends, each finding frenzied pro-
moters among the big names in
American fashion. Sticking by their
guns with the Atlas shouldered, reed
slim silhouette are Hattie Carnegie
and Uettie Rosenstein. The latter
even goes so far as to pooh pooh the
loose armholes and wing and bat
sleeves so enthusiastically applauded
by other designers. Adele Simpson
has followed basically the same pat-
tern, but her rounded or "outcurve"
shoulders replace the squared ones
of Carnegie and Rosenstein.
Exactly opposite are the styles
promoted by Herbert Sondheim. His
showings seem to have stepped fromI
Vogue's pages on post-duration Paris;
styles. The tiny doll waist is accent-
ed by intricate tummy and hip drap-
ing and the swathed bodice, complet-

ed usually by voluminous push up
sleeves (within WPB regulations).
Middle of the roaders, including
Ben Reig, Joseph Halpert and Jo
Copeland, showed more fullness in
skirts, fishtail backs and longer skirts
in general. Claire McCardell placed
herself in a class with no competition
when she surprised all with peasant-
ish styles.
Unexpected tricks in dress design
are accomplished this season with
color and fabric. Clever eye-catchers
in the high fashion category include
such things as one sleeve of spirited
color on a plain black dress, diagonal
bands of contrasting color or fabric
encircling full sleeves, and jockey
stripes of blatant color, sometimes
confined to the bodice, sometimes
swooping diagonally from neck to
hem. A Jeckyll and Hyde effect is
obtained in more formal dresses with
one shoulder completely naked and
the other swathed high and ending
in a demure cap or long loose sleeves.
The overall picture can be confined
to a few words. Watch for shoulder,
sleeve, and bodice interest, the new
figure-couture idea achieved usually
with subtle side draping, anything
resembling a high. neck
