New Works in Fogg Museum

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

The Fogg Art Museum has recently received from Mr. Edward P. Warren '83, of Lewes, England, an exceedingly beautiful fragment of a Greek head of the 4th century B. C., in the style of Scopas. The head is particularly interesting because of its resemblance to the famous Moleager now in the Fogg Museum, which is in the same style, being an early Greek copy of a lost original by Scopas.

A loan has recently been received of an important early Italian primitive attributed to Agnolo Gaddi, one of the painters who followed the tradition of Giotto. This is a superb example of 14th century Italian painting. The Annunciation, the Nativity, the Crucifixion, and the Entombment are represented on this one panel with great delicacy of finish and in rich, glowing colors.
