Collections of photographs are almost daily being added to the large number already in the Fogg Art Museum. In a few departments the collections are not quite complete and these deficiencies are rapidly being filled. Among the latest acquisitions are three hundred and fifty photographs of French Renaissance architecture and sculpture, and about one thousand illustrating the Venetian school of painting. The model of one corner of the Parthenon, which was constructed by Professor H. L. Warren, of the architectural department, has been set up in the large down stairs room. This model is made so as to show the construction of the Parthenon, and can be taken apart with ease.
Many new acquisitions are now on the road for the museum, chief among which is a cast of Michael Angelo's famous "Madonna and Child," in the Church of S. Lorenzo in Florence. Among other things which are expected is a collection of between one thousand and fifteen hundred photographs, illustrating architecture and sculpture in Southern Italy and Sicily. A collection of photographs illustrating the Dutch school of painting is also on the way.
