Denio, Chairman Mr. Bragdon Mrs. Willard INTRODUCTORY THIS first loan exhibition of paintings owned by residents of Rochester is not only interesting because it is the most notable of any yet held at the Memorial Art Gallery, but because it gives tangible evidence of the catholicity and the high standard of taste that have governed the picture lovers of this city in the purchase of works of art. Unquestionably this exhibition will do much toward stimulating and increasing a more active and popular interest in painting in Rochester. It is, too, sure to create justifiable local pride at the quality of the pict- ures which are lodged here. The exhibition will e.stablish Rochester's position in the artistic world on a new plane, for an examination of this catalogue will disclose the fact that in the collection are some of the most famous names in the history of painting. The pictures hung in the Gallery cover a wide field and a period of many years. They comprise the works of American, English, French, German, Scandinavian, Dutch and Spanish artists, of international repute and several of whom, at least, are acknowledged to have been monarchs among painters. To organize such a collection has been a labor not without difficulties and the directors of the Gallery wish to express their deep appreciation of the cordial co-operation of those citizens who have generously de- prived their own walls, for the summer, of their highly prized canvases. It is grateful to record that the management, in compiling the exhibition, was surprised at the wealth of good pictures in the city; There were sufficient offered to make this summer exhibition an annual event for several years to come. The number chosen was limited by the available wall space in the Gallery, as it was the wish of the Director to hang the paintings, so far as possible, in one line in order to avoid the danger of crowding them,- thus giving greater opportunity for an arrangement which makes for harmony in the tone relation of one picture to another.

He was apprenticed to a draper, but ;^oung Corot was determined to become a painter, and, despite all his parents could do to dissuade him, he entered, in 1822, the studio of Michallon. Studied also for a time with Victor Bertin, and later went to Italy. Exhibited in the Salon of 1827, in the Paris Exposition of 1855, and in the same year received a first class medal. In the London Exhibi- tion of 1862 he was one of the artists who represented the French School. Corot was par excellence the painter of morning; like all true artists he assimilates all he sees to his inward dream, and the varied effects of nature uniformly appear to him under the same poetical vision. He could render with more felicity than anybody else the silvery light on dewy fields, and the vague foliage of trees mirrored in calm water. There was always in his work a poetical perfume, which is .his personality, and is as good as a signature. He died in 1875. 16 Dawn, Lent by Mrs. Jas. S. Watson. WILLIAM M. CHASE, N. A., New York.

He rendered with equal facility the enchantments of the landscape flooded with sunshine, and the deep forest in luminous twilight, or Nymphs with flesh of exquisite tone; and dazzled the eye with all the seductions of a grand colorist.

Died at Haarlem, 1666. Very little is known of the life of this artist, except that it was a merry one, and that he was fond of good living. It is said that Carl van Mander, the elder, was his master. His work stamps him as one of the greatest portrait painters of all time. His facility of execution was wonderful. He was much accustomed to paint laughing and grinning faces. His large pictures of archers and civic guards are to be seen at Haarlem, in the Hotel de Ville; they are spirited, energetic, rich in color, and happy in individualism. 32 Portrait of a Man. Lent by Mr. George Eastman. 15 JEAN JACQUES HENNER. (French School.) Born at Bernwiller, in Alsace, 1829; died^ in Paris, 1905... Pupil of Ecole des Beaux-Arts, and of Drolling and Picot, Paris. He won the Prize of RomCj in 1858, with his composition "Adam and Eve Finding the Body of Abel." While in Rome, Henner began painting pictures with sombre background of foliage, with green skies and nude figures with luminous fleshtones and rather hazy outlines. He also painted numerous portraits and ideal heads' — one of his favorite models being a young girl with classic features and amber hair. He was awarded medals at the Salon of 1863, 1865, and 1866; medals of the first class at Exposition Universelle of 1878, and Medal of Honor, 1898.

Born, Newburg, N. Y., 1825. Studied under Regis Gignoux in New York. Later with A, B. Durand, and afterwards abroad. Studied in Italy for more than a year. Painted a great deal in the environs of Rome — as did Corot. He visited Europe three times for purposes of study, but returning to America he always . painted the American land- scape untrammeled by the influence of foreign scenes or foreign niethods. He was elected an Associate of the National Academy in 1853, and an Academician in 1868. He died in Scotland in 1894. Of George Inness, Richard Muther, the distinguished German art critic and historian, writes: "The life of George Inness was, like that of Corot, an incessant advance and renewal. Once, he is broad and powerful, like Rousseau; atgain tender and poetic, like Corot; here, idyllically pastoral, like Daubigny; there pathetic and brooding, like Dupre. AH his pictures are broadly painted, deeply felt, fuU-souled symphonies of tone. The histdry of art must welcome him as one of the most varied and finest landscape painters of the century." For years George Inness was recognized as the head of the American landscape school, and as one of the greatest landscape painters of our time. 36 Evening Glow. Lent by Mr. Frank G. Newell. JOSEPH ISRAELS. (Dutch School.) Born at Groningen, 1824; died at The Hague, 1911. He was one of the leading exponents of the modern Dutch School.

ITALIAN SCHOOL. (Unknown artist.) 37 Portrait of a Nobleman. Lent by Mrs. Arthur C. Smith. CHARLES EMILE JACQUE. Born at Paris, 1813; died, 1894. Animal and landscape painter, en- graver and etcher. When seventeen years old, he studied with a geographical engraver, but later on enlisted as a soldier and remained seven years in the army. He then resumed his engraving, and worked two years in England as a draughtsman on wood. He may be char- acterized as a rustic artist. He paints farmyard scenes with vigor, and excels in accurate knowledge of sheep and poultry, of which he is a fancier. By his truthful pictures of pigs he has earned the sobriquet of Le Raphael des Parceaux. Medals, third class, 1861, 1863; medal, 1864; Legion of Honor, 1867. 38 Sheep in a Barn. Lent by Mrs. J. W.

A painter df landscape, mostly of the Vosges district, where he was born. In the earlier works of Mon- chablon there is a subtle delicacy of treatment and a completeness of finish in which realism is carried to its extremest point, but in his more recent productions he retains his deep feeling for nature, and aims at a broader technique, a more intense coloring, and a striving to attain those qualities which give to the pictures of the old Dutch masters their peculiar charm. 40 Jardines a Chatillon.

(French School.) Born at Greville, near Cherbourg, 1815. His parents were peasants and being unable to afford to give their son an art educatiion, the authorities of Greville furnished him with means to go to Paris, and enter the studio of Paul Delaroche. Young Millet, however, showed no aptitude for historic painting, and after a short stay in the Delaroche studio, he left that master and went direct to nature fSr study. He married, and settled at Barbizon, near the Forest of 20 Fontainebleau, and there from the fields and woods, and from the peasants he took the subjects for his- works. His first contribution to the Salon was in 1844; to the Paris Exhibition of 1855 he sent "Peasant Grafting a Tree." In the London Exhibition of 1862, as also in the Paris Exhibition of 1867, he was represented. The Louvre and many other public galleries count his work among their most valued possessions. He was not a prolific painter — executing only about 80 pictures in oil, and a few hundred pastels, lithographs, drawings, etc. — but gave much thought to his work; he retained his canvases in his studio, and returned. to them from time to time, in order to give them exactly the sentiment he wished them to express.
