Student-Owned Art Exhibited at Museum
Undergraduate-owned art from a Javanese shadow puppet to Picasso etchings have been gathered for public view at the Germanic Museum. The purpose of the exhibition, which was originated by Dr. Benjamin Rowland Jr. and carried out by three of his tutees, was to make a "psychological study of student taste."
Early in the 1930's, there was a small group of undergraduates who had the money and desire to purchase works of Titian and Renoir. That rich era of student collectors is now past, and most of the works in the present exhibition are small objects which are enthusiasts have saved up for.
