PERSONALITY IN PAINTING

A well-known industrialist and penologist shows another side of his personality in his understanding and appreciation of art. Not an exhaustive study, but an impressionistic picture of the personalities who have given expression to beauty, serenity, tragedy, joy in art. Delightful sketches of Renoir, Cezanne, Van Gogh, Dogas, Pleasso, Ryder, Diego Rivera and others. Some charming essays on art and its appreciation. Lewisohn says: -- ""A painting must hold together. There must be a balance of different parts. The color, light and shade, the rhythms, must all be appropriate, one to the other. The shadows should be suited to the mood. It is just as in life."" Though loosely assembled, the book somehow ""holds together.
