The Chromo-Xylographs of Henri Riviere

foreground and contrast to the complex outline
of the Acropolis and its buildings; and no less
valuable to the composition is the suave line of
the blue mountain (Hymettus) above. Our
second reproduction of a water-colour drawing
has for its subject the Temple of Athene in the
island of ^gina, from which are derived the
famous pedimental sculptures, restored by Thor-
waldsen, and now the most precious of the great
collections of works of art in Munich. Of the

BRETON LANDSCAPE. "GATHERING PINE-NEEDLES " FROM A CHROMO-XYLOGRAPH BY H. RIVIERE

THE ART OF M. HENRI
RIVIERE. AS EXPRESSED
IN HIS CHROMO-XYLO-
GRAPHS. BY GABRIEL
MOUREY.

In striking contrast to those noisy artists who
are for ever striving to get themselves and their
works talked about, by dint of all the incoherent
eccentricities and so-called audacities with which
we have become familiar in France during the

the temple eleven appear in the drawing. The two
columns of the "pronaos" with their entablature
are also seen in front of the eastern facade, towards
which we are looking. The columns—some of
them monoliths—are of limestone, only the roof
and the sculptured decoration having been of
marble. Our reproduction suffers from the
absence of colour in the splendid stretch of blue
sea which appears in the drawing between the
columns and binds the whole design together. It
is hoped, however, that the illustrations to this
paper may give some idea of the interest of Mr.
Fulleylove's new work, so far as it is possible to do
so without the help of colour.

past fifteen years, is M. Henri Riviere, an artistic
personality whom it is a real pleasure to meet, an
artist of genuine merit and striking originality.
In this age of shams and puffery—in art, as in
literature and in politics—M. Riviere stands out
worthy not only of our admiration, but better
still, perhaps, of our esteem. Even admitting that
the exigencies of the struggle for fame may some-
times excuse the overweening ambition and the
frantic longing for success common among the ma-
jority, our homage is none the less due to those who
are able to make their mark on their own merits, by
dint of honest effort'towards the development of
their talents. And of such is M. Henri Riviere.
