Rarely does the Gallery depart from its
rule omitting the work of living artists.
But justly an exception should be made
in the case of Claude Monet, whose picture,
Poplars on the Banks of the Epte, is, along
with that by Paul Gauguin, a purchase of
the current year. Monet is so old that his
place in nineteenth-twentieth century art
has been long accorded him. 0 0

The last addition to the Gallery is a
charming example of feminine portrai-
ture by Sargent. This Portrait of Lady
Agnew shows an attractive young woman
in the evening dress of forty years ago
reclining flower in hand in an armchair.
The handling has all the artist's elegant
facility, and the colour scheme, lilacs and
mauves and whites, is very attractive.
The comment of a lady who saw it a few
weeks ago was " women have no figures
nowadays/' T. C. M.

and horticultural experience which were
not dreamt of a generation ago. The fact
that his personal vision and individual
convictions are not cramped by precedents
may account, to some extent, for the
healthy and vigorous progress that has
been made of late in an art which has
gained such a remarkably strong hold on
the affections of the English people. 0
This widespread cult of the garden,
especially among those who are fortunate
enough to possess a " place in the country,"
has brought about conditions favourable
