shown its full dimensions, will suddenly become
one of the first order. Complete durability ! It
is a revolution of happy augury."

But how will one be able to distinguish between
an oil-painting and an oil-pastel ? "

" By the character of the work. ... In short, it
will be the same thing. Both will be oil paintings ;
but when the work has the character of a drawing it
may be termed an oil-pastel, and when the work is in
the nature of a painting it will be an oil-painting."

"But in the exhibitions where will they place
these new works ? "

" Whatever be their nature, all these works
should be put with the oil-paintings. Paintings have
always been divided in the exhibitions according
to the medium employed by the artist—oil-paintings
or water-colours—and as all these paintings will be
in oils, they must inevitably be classed with the
oil-paintings."

" Do you think that hereby a new School is
being formed ? "

"Not at all. A new method, yes; but that
does not mean a new School. I have no preten-
sion to become the head of a new School by means
of this discovery. Each of us maintains his own
position in the striving after beauty."

" And is your method spreading abroad ? "

" Certainly, and with astonishing rapidity. I
hear .of it from all sides, and it will be seen in the
exhibitions about to be held, after Paris, in London,
Munich, Diisseldorf, Berlin, and Venice; and
centres are being formed in towns of the most
diverse description—Warsaw, the Hague, Rome,
St. Petersburg, and New York "

" You are very lucky in having associated your
name with such a renaissance of oil-painting."

" I have no wish to flatter myself on a discovery
which is beautiful only in its results—over which I
have no control. So here I stay quietly at my
easel, looking on with pleasure certainly, but
calmly and unaffectedly."

And the artist takes his colours between his
fingers again, to trace on his canvas the long
shadows projected on the green fields by the last
rays of the sun setting behind the hills.

THE ARTS AND CRAFTS
EXHIBITION AT THE
NEW GALLERY. FIRST
NOTICE.

A fairly large and intelligent 'section
of the sight-seeing public has now come
to regard the Arts and Crafts Exhibitions at
the New* Gallery as a kind of triennial
festival of decorative art, serving at once as
a standard of taste and a record of progress
in English workmanship and design. Th:s
view, no doubt, is quite as inadequate as
that which accepts the Royal Academy as
the sum total of a year's achievements in
painting. That the sight-seeing element,
challenged by the display of miscel-
laneous works of art in a place they were
