much in his unobtrusive way to elevate the love
of art here, and if he has achieved nothing more,
he has certainly helped many others to become
members of the fraternity.

Of his methods very little need be said. I
really think Tebbitt has invented his own
technique, believing in the fact that, whether a
painting be effected by the use of brush, thumb,
palette knife or otherwise, so long as the result is
the result of his method, not the fortune of
chance, which so many water-colour artists depend
on, he has gained his aim. He uses pure colour
without any addition of Chinese white or body

My intimate knowledge is that of a man who
has a positive dislike to praise, and is always con-
tent to rely on his own efforts to convince. A
more genial friend it would be hard to find, and I
thoroughly believe he is one of the few remaining
“ Bohemians.” The man lives for his work, and
his work after him will live for him. W. A.

LONDON.—Mr. Gilbert Bayes, the sculptor,
has been asked to execute the design for
the new “ Great Seal ” of England. This
is one of the important commissions
which fall to artists as a sequence of the demise
of the Crown. The Great Seal is affixed to all
weighty documents of State, and its safe custody
is one of the functions of the Lord High Chancellor.

The autumn exhibition of the Royal Society of
British Artists contains many vigorously painted
and accomplished canvases, and the number
of smaller panels is greater than usual on this
occasion. Pictures that are characteristic of the
best elements in this season’s show are Near
Worthing and Noon's Sapphire, by Mr. D. Murray
Smith; Purple and Silver., by Mr. W. Graham
Robertson; The Barn, a sketch, and Wellington
Grove, Granada, by Mr. A. H. Elphenstone;
Valley of the Torridge, by Mr. A. Carruthers-
Gould; The Glade, a decorative landscape.
