MR. LANGDON WARNER.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Those who visit the exhibition of Oriental paintings at the Fogg Museum and do not already have some knowledge of Chinese and Japanese art, are apt not to appreciate the beauty and the value of the collection. The opportunity offered this afternoon to learn about the significance of these pictures from one who has given the subject attentive study should appeal to all who are interested in art or in the civilization of the East. Mr. Warner has spent much time in the East and will return next year to China, sent by the Archeological Association of America to look over the field with a view to the establishment of a School of Archaeology and Art similar to those at Rome and Athens. The course that he is to give here in the second half of this year will therefore not be offered in 1914. The exhibit and talk this afternoon should prove valuable for all who are thinking of taking this half-course; and for those who are not, they offer one of the few opportunities to gain some insight and appreciation of the significance of the art of Thibet, China, and Japan.
