Whistlers Art Dicta and other Essays. By A. E.
Gallatin. (London: Elkin Mathews.) \(ys.
net.—The title of this little volume is somewhat
misleading, and its price out of proportion to its
value. It does not contain any unknown dicta
from the pen of the author of " The Gentle Art of
Making Enemies," but merely a few brief comments
on utterances already famous, supplemented by an
essay on the recent Memorial Exhibition at
Boston, U.S.A. With these are bound up fac-
similes of two or three unimportant letters, some
notes on certain unpublished drawings by Aubrey
Beardsley, several of which are reproduced, and an
account of an unfinished romance from his pen.
It is difficult to understand why two artists who
had so little in common should have been thus
bracketed together.
