LEAVES FROM
THE SKETCH-BOOK
OF MORTIMER MENPES

In the recently completed
series of oil portraits and
pencil drawings represent-
ing Mrs. Brown Potter in
many characters that she
has played on the stage,
Mr. Mortimer Menpes’
work lacks none of those
qualities of colour and
technical resource to which
he has so often attained
before. Fortunate in his
model, he is also happy in
his interpretation of an
extremely picturesque per-
sonality, and altogether the

✓ ’ O

collection is as persuasive
an account of its artistic
merit as it is fascinating by
its novelty. The accom-
panying drawings are re-
produced from Mr. Menpes’
preliminary sketches made
in connection with the
above-mentioned series.
