The Medici Series of reproductions of colors
after the old masters, published in this country by
Foster Brothers, Boston, and in use at the Metro-
politan Museum, the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston,
and in other institutions, are worthy of attention
whenever reproductions in color are in question.

The series as announced aims primarily at giving
to subscribers at moderate cost a collection of per-
fect colored reproductions after the old Italian mas-
ters, by modern methods of photographic collotype
(heliotipie, fototipia) in colors. The subjects will
be chosen for their artistic value and beauty. Rare
and valuable frescoes and paintings in danger of
destruction will be particularly cared for. Paint-
ings of other schools than the Italian will be repro-
duced but not in the annual Medici Series.

The Medici Prints are produced by a perfected
method of photocollotype, without screen, and
printed upon pure linen paper, without a chalk sur-
face or other glazing, in permanent colors.

The January issue of Art and Progress, the
monthly periodical issued by the American Federa-
tion of Arts, contains articles by Elisabeth Luther
Cary on Mr. Blashfield's decoration for the United
States Court House at Cleveland, Ohio; by D. E.
Roberts on the National Print Collection; by A. W.
Frohne on The New Theater, and by John W.
Beatty on International Exhibitions. Dr. Beatty
believes that the international exhibitions at Pitts-
burgh, " by affording a means of international com-
parison, have excited a mighty influence. They have
demonstrated to the most obtuse, directly and
through many various avenues, that our American
art is equal in quality and spirit to the very best
modern art of the world, so that there now exists a
greater demand for American works than at any
previous time in the history of our country."
