A new easel has recently been put on the market
by Messrs Bird Bros., of Crouch Hill. It is called
the “English Easelette,” and combines a number of
qualifications which commend it to the artist, and
especially to the out-door sketcher. It can be
readily placed at any angle, and, moreover, is
perfectly rigid when set up. It is well finished
throughout, and, being compact as well as con-
venient, it is sure to come into favour.
Among the illustrations accompanying an article
on “Montmartre, Past and Present,” which appeared
in the June number of The Studio, were three
(pages 25, 26, and 27) which should have been
described as from photographs by Mr. R. L.
Sleeth, Jun., of Wilkinsburg, Pa., U.S.A., instead
of to the writer of the article, to whom they were
ascribed through a misunderstanding.
