Will Aid Fine Arts Students
Directors of Fogg Museum stated yesterday that "In honor of Professor Tinker's presence, and in appreciation of his great contribution, there could be no more satisfactory culmination to this interesting course than an exhibit of important examples illustrating these lectures. Effort has been made to include as many important examples of the work of each of these artists as it is possible to gather together and there will be shown not only paintings in oil, but water colors and pencil and wash drawings, as well as engravings and mezzotints which pertain to the works shown.
Among the museums which have contributed to the show are the Metropolitan Museum the Duncan Phillips Memorial Gallery, the Chicago Art Institute and the Cincinnati Art Museum. From the last mentioned institution an especially fine Raeburn has been received, a painting entitled. "The Elfenstone Children." Paintings have also been donated by the School of Fine Arts at Yale, and also the Elizabethan
Club in New Haven.

Vose Galleries, the Howard Young Galleries. Knoedler and Company, and Sir Joseph Devine.
