RECEPTION ROOM IN GREY MAPLE DESIGNED BY KARL WITZMANN

EXECUTED BY AD. RIEDEL

young sculptor has himself often ex-
perienced. Many of the interiors offered
scope for designs in which to combine
the artistic and the practical. A dining-
room by Georg Winkler is of elm, so
stained as to have the appearance of
palisander. It fulfils all the modern
requirements, and is very pleasing to
the eye, two very requisite things in the
art of to-day. Another interior by the
same artist is a bedroom, in which he
has utilised a scarcity of room by placing
the bed between two cupboards and
building a third one above the washing-
stand. The coverlet and towels were
designed and executed by Fraulein
Unterkreuter, of Villach; while a boudoir
stained outwardly pale pink and inwardly
with green, thereby forming an agreeable
contrast, is very effective. Another in-
terior, a reception room by Karl Witz-
mann, is of grey maple, and shows that
the artist is a rigid disciple of the modern
school. There is a great demand for
such interiors as these, and in giving art
of this kind to the country a high pur-
pose has been served. The young artists
are kept very busy, so that the material
advantage to themselves as well as the
artistic result is very satisfactory.

opened at the Galleries,
Eastern Hill, by Mr.
Deakin, on July 9. On
the whole, the Society is to
be congratulated on the
high standard of the work
exhibited. For this high
standard many reasons tend
to contribute. Australians
who migrated to London
and Paris some years ago to
enlarge their local training,
are in many instances re-
turning; and they now in
their turn, both by example
