PREFATORY NOTE

As a means of col ecting material for this book I have sent to many artists in Great Britain and in various countries of Europe, as wel as in the United States, a circular, asking where their studies were made, what honors they have received, the titles of their principal works, etc.

I take this opportunity to thank those who have cordial y replied to my questions, many of whom have given me ful er information than I should have presumed to ask; thus assuring correctness in my statements, which newspaper and magazine notices of artists and their works sometimes fail to do.

I wish especially to acknowledge the courtesy of those who have given me photographs of their pictures and sculpture, to be used as illustrations.
