Art Club.

Volume 13, 1902, pg. 471

This Club is open to any readers of the Review, either lady or gentleman. The terms are 6s. for six months. All work marked for exhibition is criticised by Mr. David Murray, A.R.A., on the yearly "Pupils' Show Day," in Miss Stewart Wood's studio, Vine Court Studio, Holland Street, Kensington. All particulars of the Club can be obtained from Miss A. Y. Davidson, Secretary, 41, Bessborough Gardens, London, S.W.

Miss Stewart Wood's "At home," on Friday, May 9th.

Mr. David Murray, A.R.A., criticised the work of our members at length, singling out one or two of the contributors, although of the greater number he observed that the sketches were not carried far enough to be worthy of much criticism. He praised the sense of colour in most of the contributions, but was emphatic as to the necessity of drawing in the subject perfectly, so that the drawing might assert itself in spite of indifferent painting. Mr. Philip Cust, Miss Tudor Pole and Miss Douglas' work was especially praised.

Subjects for June.

I.--Flowers of the Field. This may be an open study, with the flowers treated simply in masses, taking care to paint a few in the foregournd, so as to show that you understand what the form really is.
II.--Study of a Tree Stem Do not attempt the whole stem. Draw about a foot of a birch, oak or beech tree. Go close up to it; find out exactly of what it is composed, and then imitate every bit as nearly as you can. Go away from your painting, and see if it looks like the tree at a distance; then place the two side by side, and compare the: you will soon see your own faults.
