REPORT 



THIRTY-EIGHTH ANNUAL REPORT OF THE 

TRUSTEES 

FOR THE YEAR ENDING 

DECEMBER 31, 1907 

The increasing interest of the pubHc in the Museum has 
been manifested during the past year by increase in its member- 
ship, by increase in the number of gifts received, and by 
increased attendance both of visitors and students. 

The new members number two hundred and seventy-eight, 
classified as follows : 

Fellows in Perpetuity 15 

Fellows for Life ^ 8 

Fellowship Members, contributing $100 per annum. . 12 
Sustaining Members, contributing $25 per annum. . . 41 
Annual Members, contributing $10 per annum 202 

During the year the Museum has received gifts from 
sources oth^r than the Egypt Exploration Fund of 3,153 
objects, from seventy-seven different persons. Of these gifts, 
thirty-five were paintings and ten sculptures. 

The attendance during the year was 800,763, and the 
number of students' permits to copy was 1,006. This is the 
largest attendance in any single year since the foundation of 
the Museum, except in 1903, when the Fifth Avenue wing was 
first opened to the public and the attendance was about 2,000 
more. 

The accessions during the year number 4,842 objects of 
art. Of these 3,153 were by gift, and 1,689 by purchase. Of 
these accessions fifty-four were paintings and thirty-nine 
sculptures. A full list is contained at page 43 and the follow- 
ing pages.

^^^r ANNUAL REPORT, 1907 

^ Relations With the City. 

In view of the greater interest evidenced by the city 
authorities in Museum affairs, it was deemed expedient to 
make the Mayor ex-oMcio a member of our Board of Trustees, 
as well as the Comptroller and President of the Department of 
Parks, who have always been members of the Board. Our 
constitution was amended in this particular early in the year, 
and the Museum, for the first time in its history, has been 
favored with the active participation of all these city officers in 
the meetings of its Trustees. 

Attention was called in our last annual report to the 
recommendation of Mayor McClellan in his Annual Message 
that the proposed additions to the Museum building be com- 
pleted, and that money for the work at the rate of $750,000 a 
year be provided by the issue of corporate stock. A law was 
enacted pursuant to this recommendation, giving the neces- 
sary power to the city authorities, and the City's annual appro- 
priation for maintenance was increased from $150,000 to 
$160,000. The Mayor's continued interest in the Museum is 
further manifested by the following extract from his Annual 
Message for the year 1908: 

During the year just ended the Metropolitan Museum of Art has 
made gratifying progress in the work it has accomplished, in the 
number and importance of its acquisitions, and in its power to attract 
the public. The recorded number of visitors during the year has been 
close upon 800,000. Its educational opportunities have been placed at 
the disposal of the public lo a greater extent than ever before; and 
teachers and pupils, both of tbe public schools and of private :' 
and colleges, have been quick to take advantage of them. 

During the summer there were unavoidable delays in thi 
tion of the extension of the building on Fifth Avenue, but good progress 
has been made in the last months, and there is now a prospect that 
it will be completed in the early summer. Work is also well under 
way on the new wing which is to be erected back of this extension. 
This new wing is intended primarily to contain the great Hoentschel 
Collection of objects illustrating the decorative arts of the Gothic period 
and the eighteenth century in France, which the Museum owes to the 
generosity of its President, Mr. J. Pierpont Morgan. As was 
announced last spring, Mr. Morgan has presented the eighteenth 
century section of this collection to the Museum, and has deposited the 
Gothic section as an indefinite loan. To the latter he has already made 
most important additions in the famous groups of the Entombment and 
the Pieta from the Chateau de Biron. All these treasures and many 
more are stored in the basement of the building awaiting proper space 
for their exhibition. Mr. Morgan's other gifts during the year include 



^H tne t 
B for tl 



REPORT QF THE TRUSTEES 

a unique set of early Burgundian tapestries, and he has made valu- 
able loans of paintings and sculptures, as well as numerous additions 
to his collection of Chinese porcelains. A gratifjring indication of the 
willingness of private collectors of the Gty to allow the public to 
share the enjoyment of their artistic possessions is the number of 
important loans of paintings and other works of art. 

As to the needs of the Museum, and especially to those which can 
be met by the City, what is most urgently required at present is 
an increase in its maintenance fund. Last year the City made an appro- 
priation of $160,000 towards its support, which sum has been renewed 
for the current year. The actual cost of maintaining the Museum is 
now about $100,000 in excess of this amount, and has always been con- 
siderably in excess of the City appropriation. The deficiency is partially 
made up by the annual subscriptions of members, by admissions on pay 
days, and by the sale of catalogues and other publications; but it is 
perhaps not generally •known that beyond these resources there is an 
annual deficit which has been regularly supplied hitherto by large sub- 
scriptions from individual Trustees. 

Another need of the Museum is a well equipped library of works 
relating to the history and theory of the Fine Arts for the use of 
students of the subject as a supplement to its collections. The Trustees 
are doing their share towards the development of this by a liberal 
annual appropriation for the purchase of books, but the present quarters 
of the library are wholly inadequate and unworthy of a great institution 
such as the Metropolitan Museum has become. 

The Museum Staff. 

Dr. Wilhelm R. Valentiner of Berlin has been appointed 
Curator of Decorative Arts. Dr. Valentiner is now the private 
assistant of Wilhelm Bode, the Director General of the Royal 
Museums of Berlin, as well as official assistant in the Kaiser 
Friedrich Museum. He was especially recommended to the 
Trustees of the Metropolitan Museum by Dr. Bode himself, 
whose recommendation was warmly seconded by Julius Les- 
sing. Director of the Kunstgewerbe Museum in Berlin. Under 
both of these men. Dr. Valentiner has had thorough training in 
various branches of museum work, which has given him 
exceptional preparation for the duties of his new position here. 
His university degree was obtained at Heidelberg, where 
besides being a student he was for a year and a half the 
assistant of Henry Thode, the writer on the painters of the 
Renaissance. After leaving Heidelberg he went to Holland, 
where he worked under de Groot and Bredius, and became an 
assistant of the latter in the gallery of The Hague. In 1905 
he was summoned by Dr. Bode to Berlin, and for the last two 
years has been working under him in various branches of the 

19

ANNUAL REPORT,- 1907 

Berlin collections, dividing his time between the Kaiser Frie- 
drich Museum and the Kunstgewerbe Museum, Dr. Valentiner 
has published several important works, his first being a mono- 
graph on the restoration of the Castle of Heidelberg, followed 
by a book on Rembrandt and a catalogue of the Hispano- 
Moresque pottery in the Alfred Beit collection in London. He 
has also made special studies of the pottery of the Netherlands 
and of Italian majolica, and during the last year has been 
occupied with the collection of Moslem arts in the Kaiser 
Friedrich Museum. 

Mr. Garrett Chatfield Pier has been appointed a General 
Assistant. Mr. Pier is a graduate of Columbia University, and 
has done post-graduate work in the University of Chicago. 
He has studied also in the Museums of Europe, and has spent 
four seasons in Egypt studying Egyptian, Coptic and Arabic 
glass, pottery and textiles. 

Mr. Roger E. Fry, Curator of Paintings, found himself 
unable to remain in the United States for as long a period of 
time as he originally anticipated when he accepted this Cura- 
torship. He has consequently resigned, and has been appointed 
European Adviser to the Department of Paintings, in which 
position he will be able more effectively to represent the 
Museum abroad. 

Mr. Bryson Burroughs, First Assistant Curator of Paint- 
ings, has been appointed Acting Curator of Paintings. 

The Museum Employees' Association. 
In February. 1905, the employees of the Museum organized 
a benefit association, the objects of wliich, as stated in its con- 
stitution, are as follows: "To promote a spirit of comrade- 
ship among al! persons who are in the regular employment of 
The Metropolitan Museum of Art ; to offer aid to the families 
of deceased or disabled employees and to provide a benefit for 
those who are retired from the service of the Museum for old 
age or disability after long and faithful performance of their 
duties." 

This Association now includes practically every person in 
the service of the Museum. It already has a fund sufficient to 



REPORT OF THE TRUSTEES 

enable it to pay one hundred dollars to any member who is 
honorably retired from the employment of the Museum after a 
service of twenty years, and to pay one hundred dollars to the 
heirs and assigns of any member who dies in the service of the 
Museum. At their meeting in April last the Trustees expressed 
their recognition of this effort of those in their service to provide 
a benefit fund by voting to duplicate the g^ft thus made to any 
member honorably retired after twenty years' service, and also 
to the family of any deceased member who had been in the 
service of the Museum at least three years. 

Progress in the Arrangement of our Collections. 

Here should be mentioned the entire redecoration and re- 
arrangement of the Edward C. Moore Collection, through the 
generosity of his family ; the installation of a new bronze room 
in which the Greek, Etruscan and Roman Bronzes have been 
assembled; the grouping together in separate rooms of the 
" Primitive " pictures of all schools ; of the Dutch and Flemish 
schools, and of the English pictures. 

Many changes have been effected in the exhibits, some of 
them permanent, some tentative, looking towards the solution 
of questions of effective display, color-schemes, lighting, 
mounting, etc., as well as toward a better general arrangement 
of the collections in their relations to each other and to the 
whole. 

Evening Opening and Pay Days. 

Since the sixteenth of March, the Museum has been 
opened on- Saturday continuously from lo A. M. to lo P. M., 
instead of being open for two evenings in the week between 
8 P. M.. and lo P. M. as heretofore. This change was made 
because of the very small and decreasing attendance on Mon- 
day and Friday evenings, and in the expectation that a larger 
number of people would be convenienced by opening on Satur- 
day evening, an expectation which has been realized. The 
average attendance on Saturday evening has been higher by 
half than the average attendance on either other evening. 

21 



L 



ANNUAL REPORT, 1907 

Mondays and Fridays have been continued as pay days, 
not so much by reason of the revenue involved, though that is 
considerable, but because in no other way short of absolute 
exclusion could the Museum prolong under favorable con- 
ditions its increasing use for educational purposes. The attend- 
ance on free days is ordinarily too great to permit of the 
advantageous use of the Museum by students and copyists. 

Extensions to the Museum. 

The part of the new North Wing now in course of con- 
struction nears completion. This portion includes an ample 
lecture room, the need of which has been much felt. 

Work has also been commenced on another wing, ex- 
tending in the rear of the present wing, which* is intended 
when complete to house the Hoentschel Collection and other 
objects of decorative art. 

The bids received for the construction of the new wing 
for the accommodation of the library, which was mentioned 
in last year's report, were not satisfactory and this work has 
not been started. It is expected that it will be placed under 
contract in the early spring. 

Numerous changes in the nature of alterations and im- 
provements have been made in the present building during the 
year. Some of these were minor changes, such as the con- 
struction of three offices for members of the Staff in the attic 
over the Fifth Avenue Entrance, the remodeling of two offices, 
of the rooms used by the Photographer, and of a room in the 
basement for use as a class room. Others were more exten- 
sive, such as the alterations in the domes and roof over the 
Fifth Avenue Entrance hall to gain more light and a better 
distribution of it in the room beneath, and the reconstruction 
and redecoration of the coves and skylights in the gallery con- 
taining the Morgan Collection of Chinese Porcelains. 

Increased Cooperation with the Public Schools. 
The Museum has recently arranged for more active co- 
operation with the public schools of New York City by means 
of which its collections may be made of greater practical use 



REPORT OF THE TRUSTEES 

in the teaching of art, history and literature as covered in the 
public school curricula. This work on the part of the Museum 
is in charge of its Assistant Secretary, Mr. Henry W. Kent. 

In addition to the general facilities which the Metropoli- 
tan Museum, in common with other institutions of the kind, 
affords for study, by means of its arrangement of exhibits, its 
" information desks," its guides and other printed material, 
special written information will be given at any time to teachers 
who will designate in advance the work which they wish to 
illustrate. A class room, with seating capacity of about one 
hundred and fifty to two hundred and containing apparatus for 
stereoptican exhibition, has been set aside for the use of teach- 
ers with pupils and may be secured at any time during Museum 
hours, notice being given in advance in order to prevent con- 
flicting visits. When the visits of teachers or pupils fall on 
"pay days," provision is made for their admission without 
charge. Photographs and lantern slides from the collections of 
the Museum are sent to the class room when desired, and 
assistance in selecting those which will be of use in the ground 
to be covered by the teacher's lecture is gladly g^ven. Direct 
intercourse between the Museum and the teachers is had from 
time to time, and lectures on special subjects are being given 
by members of the Museum staff. 

For individual study, the reference library of the Museum 
is open during regular hours. The material here comprises 
about 14,000 volumes of works on art and archaeology ; from 
14,000 to 15,000 photographs illustrating the history of paint- 
ing, sculpture, architecture, the industrial arts, etc. ; and over 
two hundred lantern slides illustrating foreign paintings and 
other objects of art as well as those belonging to the Museum. 

For use in the schoolroom, photographs of Museum 
objects can be secured at a price of from five cents upward. 
These range in size from 4 x 5 to 19 x 28 inches, and include all 
objects received since April, 1906, and a large number of those 
of earlier accession. Half-tone engravings and post cards rep- 
resenting certain paintings in the Museum are also on sale at a 
rate of two for five cents. 

In addition to the regular catalogues, a little printed circu- 

33 



I 

I 



ANNUAL REPORT, 1907 ^H 

lar of recent issue is of special use to teachers. This circun^ 
gives an index to the collections, a mention of points of unusual 
interest in the collections, and a brief account of the matters in 
which visiting students are generally interested. 

The Museum holds itself ready at all times to confer with 
teachers and to assist as far as it may in their work, and it is 
hoped that in the future they will find it possible to take more 
advantage of the benefits which the institution can give than 
the demands of the school system have seemed to permit in 
the past. 

Publications. 

The Museum Bulletin has resisted all temptation to in- 
crease its length in spite of the large amount of interesting 
matter that has been offered for publication. If it yielded to 
these temptations, it could easily become more of a magazine 
and less of a bulletin. While in this form it must necessarily 
exclude long articles, it is believed that its purpose is best 
served by continuing to chronicle in brief and readable form 
the Museum events which will interest our members and keep 
them closely in touch with our progress. 

Three catalogues have been issued, two of them in con- 
tinuation of the catalogue of Musical Instruments, the other a 
catalogue of the Morgan Collection of Chinese Porcelains. 
written by Mr. William M. Laffan and Dr. Stephen W. 
Bushell, which will take its place as the most important con- 
tribution to the subject that has yet appeared. The latter work 
is an enlarged and improved edition of a privately printed work 
issued by Mr. Morgan in 1904, the right to reprint and sell be- 
ing now given to the Museum by him. Catalogues of the Col- 
lection of Watches lent by Mrs. Hearn. and the Collection of 
Paintings given by Mr. Heam, are, through the generosity of 
Mr. Heam, sold in the same way as the catalogues of Museum 
collections. 

Several leaflets and folders dealing with special subjects 
and useful as a means of giving information about the Museum 
and its activities have been printed, as well as a careful index 
to the Annual Reports of the Trustees from 1871-1902, 



HSi. 



REPORT OF THE TRUSTEES 

Photograph Department. 

Reference was made in the Annual Report of 1906 to the 
reorganization of this Department. The success attending 
this reorganization has more than satisfied all reasonable 
expectation, and the facilities now accorded to visitors and 
students to readily purchase at the Museum photographs of 
different sizes and by different processes are believed to be 
greater and more available than those of any other museum at 
home or abroad. That these facilities are appreciated by the 
public is evidenced by the fact that the amount realized from 
the sale of prints at the Museum during the year was $2,068.99, 
an increase of nearly $1,500 over the amount realized in 1906. 
It is not, however, chiefly as a source of revenue that this 
department should be considered, but rather as a means of 
education. 

The production of photographs for sale is only an inci- 
dental part of the functions of our Photographic Department. 
Every object of art acquired by the Museum is now photo- 
gfraphed for its own records. 

During 1907, the Detroit Publishing Company were 
granted a second concession to complete their already large 
number of negatives for genuine carbon prints, the sizes rang- 
ing from 10 X 13 to 18 X 22 inches. Many of these prints are 
colored by their process which makes them works of art in the 
photographic sense. The most important of the new conces- 
sions granted this year to photograph in the Museum was 
issued to the New York State Education Department for a 
large number of subjects from the paintings and sculpture for 
lantern-slide use in connection with educational purposes. By 
this means of popularizing good art the Museum is constantly 
called to the attention of the pupils of free educational insti- 
tutions in districts where little that is art ever enters, and the 
Museum's treasures are visually brought and explained to 
them for their education and cultivation of good taste. 

Post cards, showing views of the Museum and important 
exhibits, have been made by the Detroit Publishing Company, 
and are on sale at the Museum catalogue stands. The num- 

35 



L 



ANNUAL REPORT, 1907 

ber of subjects is being increased, and will eventually be very 
representative. 

The LiBHAKY. 

The number of books in the Library on December 31, 
1907, was 14,657. 

The additions during the past year have been 1,901. 
By purchase from the income of the Jacob S. Rogers 

Fund 1,502 

By Purchase from income of Museum funds 250 

By gift 149 

The number of photographs added to the collection last 
year, chiefly by purchase, was about 3,411, making now a total 
of over 14,000. About 11,000 of these prints have been 
mounted and arranged and are now available to the public. 

As was staled in last year's report, it is not the desire of 
the Museum in the development of its library to compete with 
or duplicate the popularizing work of the New York Public 
Library, but to provide a place where the officials of the 
Museum, and students generally, may pursue their literary 
investigations in subjects connected with the arts represented 
in its collections, and where they may find the materials which 
will aid them in determining doubtful points in regard to the 
history or significance of any Museum object in which they 
are interested. 

Bequests of Money. 

During the year the following bequests of money have 
been received: 

Amelia B. Lazarus $20,000 

Benjamin F. Davis SO-OOO 

Margarette A. Jones 25.000 

James H. Mergentime 1,000 

The More Import.^nt Accessions Duhing the Year, 
By far the most important acquisition of the year is the 
gift of the celebrated Hoentschel Collection from our President, 



REPORT OF THE TRUSTEES 

Mr. J. Pierpont Morgan. This collection was described in the 
June number of the Bulletin. It cannot be placed on exhibition 
until the completion of the North Central Wing, now being 
built to contain it. By its possession the Museum easily be- 
comes hors concours in its collection of French eighteenth 
century decorative art. It includes boiseries of every size and 
description characteristic of the reigns of Louis XV and 
Louis XVI, many with their original colors and gilding still 
fresh upon them. Among the specimens of woodwork are not 
only the garlands, festoons and other individual ornaments 
which were attached to walls, but brackets, frames, screens, 
pedestals, balustrades, newel-posts, chairs, tables, cabinets, 
doors, over-doors, and panels. Many of these wood carvings 
have an added interest from the fact that they come from 
historical buildings. Another important and possible unique 
feature of the collection is a large quantity of ormolu deco- 
rations, such as were affixed to furniture, which are known to 
have been made by the most famous designers of the period. 
For ornament upon a small scale they will offer designers an 
inexhaustible supply of suggestion and inspiration. 

The Gothic section of the collection is equally illustrative 
of the decorative art of its period, but in conformity with the 
character of that period it is much more serious in spirit, and 
ecclesiastical work has a large share in it. There are several 
fine sets of beautifully carved choir stalls, eight pairs of stone 
columns, a large carved stone mantelpiece, furniture — domes- 
tic as well as ecclesiastical — panels, and other details. There 
are also many pieces of sculpture and tapestry. This collection 
was purchased by Mr. Morgan in the spring of 1906. Soon 
afterwards he formally presented to the Museum all the objects 
in the eighteenth century section, as described above, and 
announced that he would deposit the entire Gothic section in 
the Museum as a loan. 

Another important acquisition is a suite of Gothic tapes- 
tries (Burgundian), of Arras, Bruges or Tournai workman- 
ship of the fifteenth century, probably made for Philip the 
Good, also a gift from our President, Mr. J. Pierpont Morgan. 

Other gifts which should be specially mentioned are

ANNUAL REPORT, 1907 



eighteen paintings of different schools received from the 
estate of the late Col. Thomas P. Salter, and a collection of 
ecclesiastical objects in silver, received from the widow of the 
late Charles W. Woolsey, 

In connection with the welcome establishment by the 
children of Samuel Putnam Avery of a purchase fund of 
$25,000 in his memory, the Museum availed itself of the oppor- 
tunity to acquire the well known Gibbs-Channing- Avery por- 
trait of Washington, by Gilbert Stuart, a full description of 
which was contained in the July Bulletin. 

The Egyptian Department of the Museum has been greatly 
enriched during the year by the work of its Curator, Mr. Albert 
M. Lythgoe, in Egypt. This work has been of a twofold 
nature; first, the excavations which he has conducted on behalf 
of the Museum, with the financial support of a benefactor who 
wishes his name withheld, and second, the purchase of Egyptian 
antiquities of various epochs for the purpose of developing our 
collection of Egyptian art in a systematic manner. The objects 
already received from these two sources now occupy an entire 
room on the first floor, and some of the most important of 
those unearthed in Mr. Lythgoe's excavations last season are 
yet to arrive. Mr. Lythgoe is now in Egypt continuing both 
kinds of the work which was thus auspiciously begun. 

The accessions in the Department of Classical Art during 
the year have been botK numerous and of a most important 
character, and have amply justified the policy adopted in 1906, 
of purchasing objects of this kind with expert assistance, in the 
principal markets of Europe. The year's purchases of original 
works of Greek and Roman art made in this manner number 
one hundred and twenty-seven, divided as follows : ten marbles, 
forty-five vases, twenty-eight bronzes, thirty-one terra-cotta 
statuettes, and thirteen miscellaneous objects, such as gems, 
jewelry, etc. Visitors to the Museum who have seen these 
since their temporary installation in a room by themselves will 
agree that they are all of exceptionally fine quality, and that 
they will be of great value in enabling us to illustrate the 
principles of classic art. 



REPORT OF THE TRUSTEES 

Collections of American Art. 

Twenty-one pictures and twenty-two bronzes or marbles 
by American painters or sculptors have been acquired during 
the year. Among the more important paintings are the 
following: the Gibbs-Channing- Avery portrait of Washington, 
by Gilbert Stuart, already mentioned; two other portraits by 
Stuart, and from the income of the Heam Fund, paintings by 
Bunce, Murphy and Reid. " The Falling Gladiator," by Dr. 
William Rimmer, obtained through the Rimmer Memorial 
Committee, is the most noteworthy piece of sculpture acquired. 

The tentative lists of some of the best known American 
painters and sculptors who either are not at all or are not 
adequately represented in our collections have been corrected 
to date and are included in an appendix to this report. 

Conclusion. 

The chief events of the year have been the increasing 
interest and cooperation of our city authorities in the Museum 
as one of the Public Institutions of the City, the gifts of the 
City and the gift of the Hoentschel Collection. More notable 
still is our steady and orderly progress in every line of 
Museum development, and particularly along those that fulfill 
our educational functions.

DESIDERATA 
IN AMERICAN PAINTINGS AND SCULPTURE 

The following list is reprinted from the Annual Report for 
1905 and 1906 with changes made necessary by recent addi- 
tions. It was prepared by Mr. George H. Story in consultation 
with the following Trustees : Frederick Dielman, President of 
the National Academy of Design, Daniel Chester French and 
Robert W. de Forest, Secretary. 

It contains the names of some of the best known deceased 
American artists, who either are not at all or are not adequately 
represented in the Museum collections. It is believed that the 
Museum should have in its galleries at least one or two dis- 
tinctly characteristic pictures of those artists who represent 
historically the development of American painting. There are 
included in the list those artists who are now represented, it 
may be, by several pictures, but of whom the Museum would 
be glad to have one or more works which may be distinctly 
classed as masterpieces. What the Museum desires is quality 
rather than quantity. This list is tentative and not inclusive. 
The more important names are indicated with an asterisk.

REPORT 



THIRTY-NINTH ANNUAL REPORT OF THE 

TRUSTEES OF THE MUSEUM 

FOR THE YEAR ENDING 

DECEMBER 31, 1908 



THE salient points in the history of the Museum during 
the past year are : the largest attendance in its entire 
history, the largest number of accessions and the inaug- 
uration of a policy of special exhibitions, beginning with that of 
the works of the late Augustus Saint-Gaudens, followed by one 
of contemporary German art. 

The attendance was 817,809. That of 1907 was 800,763. 
The largest previous annual attendance was 802,900, which 
occurred in 1903, when the Fifth Avenue extension was first 
opened. Permits to copy have been issued to 1,215 students, as 
compared with 1,006 for the year 1907. 

The accessions numbered 5,686 objects of art. Of these 
1,983 were gifts or bequests, and 3,703 were purchases. Of the 
accessions by gift or bequest thirty-nine were paintings and 
eleven sculptures; of the accessions by purchase fourteen were 
paintings and thirty-two sculptures. 

The Members added during the year number 112, as follows : 

Fellows in Perpetuity 19 

Fellows for Life 6 

Fellowship Members, contributing $100 per annum. . . 4 

Sustaining Members, contributing $25 per annum 24 

Annual Members, contributing $10 per annum 59 

Like other institutions the Museum was affected by the late 
financial depression; the loss of members by death or'resigna- 
tion was 130, making a net loss of eighteen, which occurred en-

arkrymliA'iUnsnX seems ajTpiopnate. 

EXKEKSES OF AdMIXISTKATIOK AND MAINTENANCE 

7'be expenditure for administration and maintenance during 
the year has amounted to $260,396.33. The City contributed 
$i6o/x>o toward the payment of this amoimt, and the balance 
w^ received from membership dues, already referred to, sub- 
«/:rJ|Hir/nA from the Trustees and other sources, and $7,114.25 
from entrance fees. 

The Museum Staff 

No cliangc has taken place in the official staff of the Museum, 
v%ijt*\i\. that Mr. Bryson Burroughs, who has hitherto been Act- 

18 



REPORT OF THE TRUSTEES 

ing Curator of Paintings, has been appointed full Curator. 
Dr. W. R. Valentiner, who was appointed Curator of Deco- 
rative Arts in 1907, entered upon his duties in April. 

The More Important Accessions of the Year 

Although the number of gifts has been very large, no single 
gift of such importance as the Hoentschel Collection of French 
Eighteenth century furniture and woodwork, chronicled last 
year, has been received. The extensive collection of laces, num- 
bering 967 pieces, given by Mrs. Magdalena Nuttall, should 
receive special attention. 

The bequest of Mteen modem paintings from Mrs. Martha 
T. Fiske Collord ; the Miss Jane Hunt legacy of the " Girl at the 
Foimtain," painted by William Morris Hunt ; the gift of the por- 
trait of Augustus Saint-Gaudens, by Kenyon Cox, from a group 
of the sculptor's friends and admirers through A. F. Jaccacci, are 
the most important additions of the kind to the Department of 
Paintings. 

Two important additions to the collection of sculpture have 
been received from Mr. Edward D. Adams," La Main de Dieu," 
a marble by Rodin, and "Die Mutter," a marble group by 
Lewin-Funke. 

Development and Arrangement of Our Collections 

It is in this direction that the advance in the administration of 
the Museum has been most marked, and as these changes have 
occupied the attention of the entire staff to an unusual degree, 
they should be given a prominent place in this report. 

Egyptian Art. Results of Exploration and Excavation. 

Purchases 

The work of the Museum's Egyptian Expedition at Lisht 
during the season of 1907-1908 began in November, 1907, at the 
Northern Pyramid, that of Amenemhat I, and continued there 
until the end of March, 1908. It was then transferred to the 
Southern Pyramid, that of Usertesen I, where it continued until 
June. The number of men employed varied from one hundred 
to three hundred, according to need. 

The work at the Northern Pyramid consisted of a further 
clearing of the temple causeway on the east, which resulted in the 

19

^ruling of sev^al relfef aaJptmrs, foundadoa depoats and a 
number of interesrfng objects of the Ail Dynastr. The excava- 
tion was prosecuted on the north skie, in order to dear the en- 
trance to the pyramid itsetf, and to lay bare the endosore walL 
Later remains found here indicate that as early as the XXII 
Dynasty this side of the pyramid was the site of a fiourishing 
village, and that the work of its destruction was far advanced. 
Operations inside of the pyramid have been necessarily post- 
poned until the tomb chamber can be freed from water. Some 
of the objects found in these excavaticMis were placed on tempo- 
rary exhibition in the Museum in December, 190S. 

At the Southern Pyramid the woiiL was prosecuted on the 
east, with a view to clearing the temple causeway. It resulted, 
among other things, in uncovering a notable headless Osiride 
figure of Usertesen I. On the southerly side remnants of the 
enclosure wall were found, indicating that its original height had 
been about five meters. The remainder of the woiiL lay in the exca- 
vation of private tombs, by which the pjrramid was surrounded. 

The Egyptian Expedition has pursued, also, its operations on 
the site of its other concession in the Oasis of Kharga — the 
"Great Oasis" — situated about one hundred and twenty miles 
west of Luxor, in the Libyan Desert. This work was b^un in 
February, 1908, and continued into May. After an examination 
to determine the chief points of historical and archeological inter- 
est attention was directed toward a Christian cemetery known as 
El Bagawat, where there are some two hundred tomb chapels 
and innumerable pit burials. The chapels, arranged partly in 
regular rows and partly haphazard, are of mud brick, some cov- 
ered with a white stucco decorated with Biblical or other scenes, 
and others quite plain. The pit burials are placed in the inter- 
vening ground. In May, attention was turned to a mound called 
Ain cl-Turba, which proved to contain the mud brick foundations 
and lower walls of Roman houses dating from about the Fourth 
century A.D. In general, the work at the Oasis consisted of 
three kinds— photographing and classifying the types of chapel 
tombs, clearing and recording some of the best of them, and ex- 
cavating a section of the cemetery containing pit burials. 

Purchases from the Egyptian government residted in the 

30 



REPORT OF THE TRUSTEES 

acquisition of two offering chambers from Mastaba tombs, da- 
ting from the V D)masty. They originally stood near the well- 
known tombs of Ti and Ptah-hotep at Sakkarah. Both have 
characteristic reliefs, depicting various scenes from the life of the 
Egyptian landowner. One of these chambers, measuring 8 by 
14 feet and 9 feet high, that of a man named Ra-em-ka, is deco- 
rated on all of its walls in delicate low reliefs, which are unques- 
tionably the finest specimens of Egyptian sculpture ever brought 
to America. The other is more rudely done ; its figiures, how- 
ever, are not only in relief, but are colored, also. It belonged to 
a man named Sekhem-hathor. Only one wall, 17 feet long by 
8 feet high, was inscribed, the work having been left incomplete 
originally. Both of these chambers were constructed of lime- 
stone. 

Another tomb was also acquired. It was found at Razigat, 
and was presented to the Museum on condition of the payment 
of the cost of removal. It is constructed of large blocks of sand- 
stone, with incised figures and hieroglyphs. 

These three chambers required 209 boxes for their transpor- 
tation to this country. 

Classical Art 

In the Department of Classical Art the special work accom- 
plished during the year has been the rearrangement of the terra- 
cottas, including those in the Cesnola Collection, in a room de- 
voted originally to them, following the principle previously 
adopted with the vases and bronzes ; the installation of a room of 
Prehistoric (Jreek Art, containing reproductions of objects found 
in Crete, Mykenae and other sites, as well as the original Cretan 
antiquities presented by the American Exploration Society, of 
Philadelphia, through Mrs. Harriet Boyd Hawes ; the rearrange- 
ment of a considerable part of the collection of casts, especially 
the large hall in which the sculptures from the Temple of Zeus at 
Olympia and the Nike of Samothrake are now effectively dis- 
played, and the publication of a catalogue as part of the catalogue 
of the entire collection of casts which was issued in the autumn. 
Of the routine work of the department the most important has 
been the accessioning and preparing for exhibition of the original 
objects acquired by purchase during the year 1907, and the con-

catalogue of the plaster casts, both sculptural and architectur^ail, 
including those of the Willard, CuUum, John Taylor Johnslc^n 
and Marquand collections. A third catalogue, embracing tM^e 
collection of modem sculpture, has been printed, but has not y*( 
been offered for sale, owing to the temporary dispersal of the col- 
lection incident to the use of the hall for the Saint-Gaudens Ex- 
hibition. 

A second edition of the Catalogue of The Collection of Spoom, 
made by Mrs. S. P. Avery, 1867-1890, 1899, has also been 
printed. 

The Catalogue of Paintings is under constant revision and 
enlargement, and will be replaced by an entirely new edition in 
the near future. 

The catalogues of the collections now number eighteen. Ar- 
rangements have recently been made with Mr, Bernard Quaritch, 
of London, authorizing him to act as European agent for the sale 
of our publications. 

Among the most important of our publications, by reason of 
their educational use, the satisfaction they give and the impor- 
tant part they play in general administration, are the photographs 
to which we refer under the head of the " Photograph Depart- 
ment." 

The series of leaflets of information used for free distribution 
in connection with the various branches of the Museum work 
now numbers eleven. 

Another publication in which the Museum has joined with 
five other like City institutions is a poster to be displayed in rail- 
road stations, hotels and other public places, giving suitable 
directions to visitors to the city for reaching these points of 
interest. 

Photograph Department 

An account of the organization of the Photograph Depart- 
ment was given in the last year's report. The work has gone 
steadily forward and is now of importance in our system of ad- 
ministration. All accessions are registered photographically, 
and departmental records are kept by meansof thephotographic 
print. Our sales stall has been thoroughly equipped with prints 
of large size for inspection by purchasers, and a full set of photo- 




REPORT OF THE TRUSTEES 

graphs of objects in our collections may be studied in the Li- 
brary. The making of carbon prints, blue prints of draughts- 
man's drawings, mounting, etc., work formerly sent out, is now 
done in the Museum. 

The amount of work done by this Department is illustrated 
"by the following figures : The total number of photographs made 
and distributed during the year was 21,192, of which 11,400 were 
xnade for official records and departmental use, and 9,702 were 
<ielivered to the sales department. 4,935 photographs and half- 
tones were sold during the year. Besides these, a large number 
of photographs made by outside photographers were sold in the 
Museum. 

There was received from these sales and from royalties on 
photographs made and sold outside of the Museum $3,581.09. 

Not an unimportant part of the educational function of the 
Museum is performed by facilitating this general distribution of 
its prints, and the opportunities now afiforded in this direction to 
the general public are believed to be superior both in quality and 
variety to those provided by any other art museum in Europe or 
America. 

Evening Opening and Pay Days 

The opening of the Museum on Saturdays continuously from 
10 A.M. to 10 P.M. has given increasing convenience and satisfac- 
tion to the public. The reservation of Mondays and Fridays for 
copyists and for other educational purposes, by maintaining them 
as pay days, seems to aflford sufficient facilities for special stu- 
dents without unduly interfering with the use of the Museum by 
the general public. 

The Library 

The number of books in the Library on December 31, 1908, 
was 16,700. The additions during the past year have been 
2,043 5 of these, 1,874 were purchased and 169 were gifts. 

The number of photographs added to the collection, chiefly 
by purchase, was 5,934, making a present total of nearly 20,000 
prints which are available to the public. 

As has been frequently stated, the development of the Library 
will be kept strictly within lines germane to the collection. It is 
intended for the use of its staff and for students who wish to pur-

Special Exhibitions 

The first special exhibition given by the Museum in recent 
times was a memorial exhibition of the works of the late Augus- 
tus Saint-Gaudens, which was arranged in the laige scu^ture 
haU. It was opened on March 2, with a reception and private 
view for members and their friends, and continued on view dur- 
ing the months of March, April and May. The collection num- 
bered 154 pieces of sculpture, including practically all of the 
achievements of Mr. Saint-Gaudens's art, much of which was 
represented by the originals and the rest by plaster casts, photo- 
graphs, etc. This exhibition was under the charge of a special 
committee, consisting of:

Its success was largely due to the cooperation of Mrs. Saint- 
Gaudens and her"son/Mr. Homer Saint-Gaudens, and to the 

28 



REPORT OF THE TRUSTEES 

generous cooperation of many lenders, individuals as well as 
corporations. The expenses were entirely met by private sub- 
scription and do not enter into the cost of administration or 
maintenance. 

The exhibition of Contemporary German Art, which was 
opened on January 4, 1909, and the coming Hudson-Fulton Art 
Exhibition, announcement of which has been made, fall within 
the year 1909 and will, therefore, be chronicled in the report for 
that year. They are mentioned here to illustrate the extent to 
which the Museum has already adopted the new policy of special 
exhibitions. 

Cooperation with the Schools 

Last year's report — that for 1907 — included a full statement 
of the arrangements made for increased cooperation with the 
public and other schools. Teachers and students are taking 
advantage of these opportunities in increasing numbers. The 
number of students who visited the Museum in classes, accom- 
panied by their teachers, was 5,627, an increase of 3,403 over the 
number for last year. 

With a view to further and facilitate such instruction, and 
also to meet the demand from members who wished to be shown 
over the Museum under expert guidance, the Trustees in Octo- 
ber appointed Mrs. Lucy O. Perkins to the position of Museum 
Instructor. Since October i, when this appointment practically 
became operative, 434 persons have availed themselves of her 
services. These services are given free to members and to 
teachers and pupik of the public schook. To all others a 
nominal charge of twenty-five cents per person is made, with a 
minimum of one dollar per hour. 

The Jacob H. Lazarus Scholarship 
The fifth competition for the Jacob H. Lazarus Scholarship 
for the study of mural painting was held in October, under the 
direction of the following committee : Frederic Crowninshield, 
who has for many years generously given his services as Chair- 
man, J. Carroll Beckwith, Edwin H. Blashfield, George W. 
Breck, A. D. F. Hamlin, Francis C. Jones, George W. Maynard, 
A. T. Schwartz and Edgar M. Ward. 

The successful candidate, Frank ToUes Chamberlin, will

ANNUAL REPORT, 1906 

immediately begin his studies in succession to Mr. Paul Chalfin, 
the retiring scholar. 

Conclusion 
If any thoughtful and constant visitor at the Museum were 
to look back and contrast his impressions at the b^inning and 
at the close of the year, with a view to determine wherein the 
Museum had made its greatest advance during that period, it 
would not be in any single new object of art or group of such 
objects, but in the steady and orderly progress which has been 
made in rounding out and developing its collections, notably on 
the side of industrial art, and in the improvement of their ar- 
rangement both from a scientific and an esthetic viewpoint. He 
would also note the steady increase in the extent and use of its 
educational opportimities.

DESIDERATA

AMERICAN PAINTINGS 

AND 

SCULPTURE 



DESIDERATA 
IN AMERICAN PAINTINGS AND SCULPTURE 

The following list is reprinted from the Annual Report for 1905 and 

^^^^ with changes made necessary by recent additions. It was prepared by 

^^- George H. Story in consultation with the following Trustees : Frederick 

*^ielman, President of the National Academy of Design, Daniel Chester 

^ ^ench and Robert W. de Forest, Secretary. 

It contains the names of some of the best-known deceased American 
Artists, who either are not at all or are not adequately represented in the 
^luseimi collections. It is believed that the Museum should have in its gal- 
leries at least one or two distinctly characteristic pictures of those artists who 
represent historically the development of American painting. There are 
included in the list those artists who are now represented, it may be, by 
several pictures, but of whom the Museum would be glad to have one or 
more works which may be distinctly classed as masterpieces. What the 
Museum desires is quality rather than quantity. This list is tentative and 
not inclusive. The more important names are indicated with an asterisk :

REPORT 



FORTIETH ANNUAL REPORT OF THE 

TRUSTEES OF THE MUSEUM 

FOR THE YEAR ENDING 

DECEMBER 31, 1909 

THE function of this Annual Report is to summarize the 
history of the Museum during the past year, in such form 
as to admit of ready comparison with the reports of pre- 
vious years and to place its most important events in proper 
perspective. 

Chief among these events is the loss by death of no less than 
seven of our elective Trustees, one-third of the entire number. 

This death roll includes our two Vice-Presidents, Darius 
Ogden Mills and John Stewart Kennedy; our Treasurer, John 
Crosby Brown; two members of our Executive Committee, 
Charles Stewart Smith and William Mackay LaflFan; a former 
Vice-President, Rutherfurd Stuyvesant, and our architect, 
Charles Follen McKim. All of them were active and efficient 
members of our Board and all of them endeared themselves to 
their fellow Trustees by long years of service, with a common 
purpose and in a common cause. The memorial resolutions 
adopted by the Trustees on the announcement of their deaths 
are appended to this report. 

Trustees have been elected to fill four of these vacancies; 
three* remained unfilled at the close of the year. 

The new Trustees elected are George F. Baker, George 
Blumenthal, Henry Clay Frick and Howard Mansfield. 

Howard Mansfield was elected to the post of Treasurer in 
October, and Robert W. de Forest to the Vice-Presidency left 
vacant by the death of Mr. Kennedy, in December. 

*At a meeting of the Trustees held February 21, 1909, Frank D. Millet 
was elected to fill one of these vacancies. 

19 





ANNUAL REPORT, 1909 

It is not alone among the elective Trustees that there hai 
been changes in the Board. All of the present ex-officio Tms- 
ees are new members. Frederick Dielman ceased to be a 
ber of the Board by reason of his declining reelection as Presider^^ 
of the National Academy of Design, and was succeeded by Jol 
W. Alexander, its new president. Mr. Dielman's service h( 
been in no sense perfunctory, as is often the case with ex-offici 
members of boards. He has been a regular attendant at oi 
meetings for more than ten years, and latterly he has been 
member of the Committees on Paintings and Purchases. Th- 
new city administration brings into the Board our Mayor, tb 
Hon. William J. Gaynor; our Comptroller, the Hon. WillianC^^^^^ 
A. Prendergast, and the President of our Park Board, the Hon. 
Charles B. Stover, from all of whom the Museum has evei 
reason to expect the same active cooperation which it has re- 
ceived from our city officers in recent times. 

Other events of the year which stand out prominently are the 
special Exhibition of Contemporary German Art, the Hudson- 
Fulton Exhibition, which brought to the Museum as notable 
collection of Seventeenth century Dutch art as has ever 
assembled anywhere, the completion of our new extension oi 
Fifth Avenue, in which these special exhibitions were held, and — 
the completion of the new wing for Decorative Arts, which is in. 
process of arrangement and has not yet been opened to the 
public. 

The generous legacies of Frederick C. Hewitt, of Owego, and 
of our late Vice-President, John Stewart Kennedy, from each of 
whom the Museum has already received more than a million 
dollars, should also be noted. It is illustrative that the first- 
named legacy should have come from a gentleman whose interest 
in the Museum, long standing as we now find it to be, was never 
made known to our Trustees, even by an application for mem- 
bership, and that he was led to make the Museum his residuary 
legatee by watching the interest manifested in our collections by 
the crowds of working people whom he found visiting the 
Museum on Sunday afternoons, while the last-named legacy 
came from one of our older Trustees, whose appreciation came 
through long service on our Board. 

20 




REPORT OF THE TRUSTEES 

Not the least noticeable event of the year is the great progress 
^-Xready made in the rearrangement of our collections xmder the 
^iirection of the skilled members of our staflF, which is set forth 
^^nth some detail in following pages of this report. 

STATISTICAL 
Attendance 

The attendance for the year 1909 was the largest in the his- 
tory of the Museum, partly due to the two special exhibitions 
^ahready mentioned and partly to the normal increase of students 
^md visitors^ The total was 937,833, as compared with 817,809 
during the previous year. Of this number 5,857 were students. 

Membership 

The members now number 3,322, divided as follows : 

Fellows in Perpetuity 311 

Fellows for Life 148 

Fellowship Members, contributing $100 per annum 77 
Sustaining Members, contributing $25 per annum. 261 
Annual Members, contributing $10 per annum 2,525 

After the deduction of loss through death and resignation 
there was a net increase of 200 members over the number of the 
previous year. 

From the list of our Honorary Fellows for Life we have lost 
by death Prof. Charles Eliot Norton, of Harvard University, the 
distinguished scholar who has been associated with the Museum 
since 1880, and George A. Lucas, of Paris, an eminent collector 
and generous friend, who has been a member since 1889. 

The Trustees have elected as Honorary Fellows during the 
year the following'named persons : John Shaw Billings, Hermon 
C. Bumpus, Frederick Dielman, Frederick R. Kaldenberg, Luke 
Vincent Lockwood, Gaston Maspero, William Francklyn Paris, 
Miss Mary Parsons, Charles D. Walcott. 

The following names have been added to the roll of Bene- 
factors, in recognition of the extent and value of gifts received : 
Edward D. Adams, Frederick C. Hewitt, John Stewart Ken- 
nedy, Margaret Olivia Sage (Mrs. Russell Sage).

ANNUAL REPORT, 1909 

Expenses of ADinNisxaATiON and Maintenance 
The expenditure for administration and maintenance dimng 
the year has amounted to $285,965.20. The city contributed 
$200,000 toward the payment of this amount, $11,622,50 was 
received from admissions on pay days. The balance was maxle 
up from membership dues, interest on general endowment, con- 
tributions of members and Trustees, and from other sources. 
The year closed with a small surplus. 

The amounts received from the legacies of WiUiam R. Sands 
and Emma A. Tillotson, as well as from persons who qualified 
for corporate membership, aggregating $35,422.50, have been 
carried to the general endowment fund. 

The amounts received from the legacies of Frederick C. 
Hewitt and John Stewart Kennedy have, until further action of 
the Board of Trustees, been established as memorial funds for 
the purchase of objects of art. 



The Staff 



s for I 



The only changes in the olEcial staff of the Museum have 
been the appointment of Garret Chatfield Pier and Joseph H. 
BreCk, who have heretofore been general assistants, as Assistant 
Curators of Decorative Arts and of Arthur C. Mace and Her- 
bert E. Winlock, who were associated with the Museum's 
Egyptian explorations, which have been made possible by the 
generosity of our President, as Assistant Curators of Egyptian 
Art, 

Our Director, Sir Purdon Clarke, has remained abroad dur- 
ing the latter part of the year, under the extended leave of 
absence accorded to him by our President, and our Assistant 
Director, Mr, Edward Robinson, has been Acting Director dur- 
ing his 



Accessions 
The accessions numbered 8,487 objects of art. Of these 
1,438 were by gift or bequest and 7,049 by purchase. In expla- 
nation of this large number it should be noted that they include 
two large collections of small objects — the Blackbome collection 
of laces and the Fishbach collection of textiles. 




REPORT OF THE TRUSTEES 

Of the accessions by bequest or gift, 30 were paintings and 7 
sculptures. Of the accessions by purchase, 25 were paintings 
and 26 sculptures. 

Among the more important accessions should be noted a 
magnificent Spanish altarpiece in alabaster, of the transition 
period from the Gothic to the Renaissance, the gift of our Presi- 
dent, Mr. J. Pierpont Morgan ; theBlackbome collection of laces, 
one of the best private collections, containing nearly 700 pieces, a 
gift by subscription of public spirited friends, three rich French 
tapestries of the early Fifteenth century, and a Burgundian tapes- 
try of the middle of the same century, acquired by purchase ; the 
BoUes collection of American furniture and household art, the 
gift of Mrs. Russell Sage; and, among the pictures, "The Heart 
of the Andes,'' by the late Frederic E. Church, the bequest of the 
late Mrs. David Dows; "Oxen Fording the Stream," by Von 
Ziigel, one of the notable pictures of the German Exhibition, the 
gift of Mr. Adolphus Busch, and "The Muse of Painting," by 
John La Farge, given by Mr. J. Pierpont Morgan and Mr. Henry 
Walters. 

Noteworthy, also, are three Greek marbles, and other objects 
added to our collection of Classical Art. 

Development and Arrangement of Our Collections 

The past year marks a great advance in the development and 
arrangement of our collections, and this advance should be sep- 
arately noted in connection with our different departments. 

Department of Egyptian Art 

The Department of Egyptian Art has made a considerable 
advance in the scope of its collections during the year, principally 
through the results received from the work of the Museum's 
Expedition in Egypt. The programme of excavation carried out 
by the Expedition during the season of 1908-9 was in continua- 
tion of the work of the previous year on its concessions at the 
Pyramids of Lisht and the Oasis of Kharga. 

At Lisht the work centered chiefly in the clearing of the pyra- 
mid temple of King Sesostris I, of the twelfth dynasty. The 
excavation was begun on the eastern front of the temple and 

23 



ANNUAL REPORT, 1909 

gradually carried back to the rear through large mounds of 
d^ris under which the construction lay buried. A force of 
from one hundred and fifty to two hundred and fifty men, ac- 
cording to requirements, with a double line of railway, was 
engaged continuously in the work from February i until the 
end of June, 

As is very generally the case in the excavation of Egyptian 
structures of this type, the temple was found to have been pulled 
down at some later period and a part of its material removed for 
the construction of other buildings, but it was sutficiently pre- 
served to make it possible to determine its plan and principal 
architectural features, and thus to prove its relation in type to the 
earlier pyramid temples of the fourth and fifth dynasties. A 
large amount of the painted relief sculpture from the temple 
walls was also recovered, which exhibits an unusually perfect 
preservation of color, owing to the considerable depth of clean 
sand and debris by which it had been protected. A lion's head 
of heroic size in limestone, which originally had served as an 
exterior ornament on the temple, was found in the position in 
which it had fallen. 

The total results of the season's work at Lisht form a distinct 
contribution to the history of Egyptian art during the Middle 
Empire, and the material thus added to our collection places it 
in a unique position in its representation of that period. 

At the Oasis of Kharga a force of about one hundred and 
forty workmen were employed from January until April in the 
continuation of the excavation of the Christian Necropolis and a 
.section of the ancient city of Hibis. flere the work yielded 
results illustrative of the later period of Egyptian civilizadon, 
such as a horde of bronze coins of the joint reigns of Discletian, 
Maximian and Coostandus, several types of plaster statuettes, 
small bronzes of Osiris and Harpocrates, terra-cotta lamps and 
pottery, and objects in glass and glaze. 

At Thebes a third branch of the Expedition continued the 
work, begun in 1907, of copying in color a number of the best 
preserved painted tombs at Sheikh Abd el Guma. Copies of i 
three of these, in full scale, are now nearly completed, and will be | 
reconstructed in the Museum in due course. 



^ 



REPORT OF THE TRUSTEES 

Through a plan of cooperation with the Smithsonian Institu- 
tion the Expedition had in the field this year the services of Dr. 
A. Hrdlicka, who carried on an examination of the skeletal 
material resulting from the excavations at bothLisht andKharga. 
His valuable observations are to be embodied in a report on 
the subject to be published by the Smithsonian Institution. 

Out of the income from the Rogers' Fund there has been 
purchased for the department a series of seven "Fayum" por- 
traits, painted in encaustic on wood, and a full-length portrait on 
linen. These are important examples of Romano-Egyptian art 
of the Second century, a.d. 

During the present winter of 1909-10 the Egyptian Expedi- 
tion, with five of its members, is engaged in the clearing of the 
Temple of Darius at Kharga. This has been undertaken with 
the cooperation and assistance of the Egyptian government. At 
the same time there is being carried out in the Museum a com- 
plete rearrangement of the Egyptian collection and the installa- 
tion, in the rooms on the main floor of the new Fifth Avenue 
wing, of both the older part of the collection previously exhibited 
and the new material resulting from the work of the Expedition 
during the past three years. The new arrangement will be a 
chronological one. Beginning in the present Accessions Room 
with the illustration of prehistoric and early dynastic art, the 
series will continue in chronological sequence, and after com- 
pleting the circuit of the wing, end in Gallery 6, on the west side 
of the Fifth Avenue hall, with the representation of the Graeco- 
Roman and early Christian art of Egypt. It is hoped that the 
collection may be opened for exhibition during the summer of 
1910. 

Department of Classical Art 

The Classical Department has been very fortunate in its 
acquisitions this year, especially as regards sculptures. Of the 
ten Greek and Roman marbles acquired during the year at least 
three would be regarded as of first-rate importance in any collec- 
tion, however rich. These are the statue of the "Old Market 
Woman," described in the Bulletin at the time when it was 
placed on exhibition; the remarkable, life-size figure of a 
"Crouching Lion," a Greek work of the Fifth century B.C., and 

25 



I 



ANNUAL REPORT, 1909 

a fragment of a "Crouching Venus," of about the same size as 
the famous one in the Louvre, somewhat more broken, but 
superior to it in workmanship. Scarcely less important is the 
life-size fragment of a statue of a "Seated Philosopher," signed 
by the otherwise unknown sculptor, Zeuxis. Space forbids men- 
tion in detail of the others, each of which is, however, a valuable 
addition to our small collection of ancient sculptures. In con- 
nection with these, acknowledgment should be made to Mr. 
James Loeb and an anonymous friend of the Museum, who con- 
tributed generously toward their purchase, and to Mr. Loeb, 
also, for his gift of a beautiful Greek marble head of a girL The 
other objects purchased for this department include 19 bronzes, 
counting as one item 15 small animals, etc., which evidently 
formed part of a composition representmg a farm yard ; 31 Greek 
vases, among them 19 which were found together and appar- 
ently constituted a table service; 9 Greek terra-cottas, and i 
fragment of a stucco wall decoration, with two figures in relief. 
With the exception of the "Old Market Woman" these pur- 
chases were not received at the Museum until the end of Decem- 
ber, but they are now on exhibition and will be described and 
illustrated in the BuUelln in due course. The collection is at 
present still further enriched by Mr. Morgan's loan of his mar- 
velous bronze figure of "Eros," from Boscorealc, which forms 
the central ornament of the new Boscoreale Room, and also by 
his loan of the Gr^au collection of glass, consisting of about 
2,500 pieces, which, with the Marquand-Charvet collection and 
the glass in the Cesnola and Moore collections, will enable us to 
make a display of ancient glass that is probably unequalled in any 
other museum. A special room for this will be provided during 
the coming months. 

The most important piece of work accomplished by this de- 
partment during the year has been the thorough examination, 
classification and rearrangement of the pottery and sculptures in 
the Cesnola collection of Cypriote antiquities. Appreciating the 
fact that this collection has been for many years a subject of dis- 
cussion among archa;ologists, it was Mr. Robinson's wish that it 
should be examined imder the direction of a disinterested author- 
ity, whose judgment would be accepted by scholars as final, and 



REPORT OF THE TRUSTEES 

that its rearrangement should be based upon the results of the 
most recent investigations in Cypriote archaeology. This desire 
was cordially supported by the Trustees, and they have been for- 
timate in securing the services of Prof. John L. Myres, of the 
University of Liverpool, under whose personal guidance the 
work is now nearly completed. The large gallery containing 
this part of the Cesnola collection will soon be open to the public 
in its new arrangement, by which it will be found to have gained 
immensely in interest to the lay visitor as weU as the specialist. 
Professor Myres has already published in the Bulletin some of 
his conclusions regarding the quality of the collection, and it is 
gratif}dng to note that his investigations have confirmed the 
judgment of the early Trustees in their first important purchase 
for the Museum. 

The sculptures and vases of the classical collections have also 
been rearranged this year, the former in the gallery occupied 
imtil recently by Greek vases, at the south end of the Fifth 
Avenue front, while the vases have been transferred to the south 
side of the old building, by the Central Park entrance. For- 
merly this entrance opened directly into a large exhibition room, 
without lobby or vestibule, but a lobby has now been constructed 
inside the doorway, leaving a fair-sized galley on either side, and 
in the two rooms thus formed the Greek and Etruscan vases are 
being installed, an arrangement which brings them into direct 
connection with the C)T)riote collection, where they logically 
belong. In the new sculpture room, statues, reliefs and busts 
hitherto scattered have been brought together, and the room is 
now practically full. The space needed immediately for the 
growth of the collection has been provided by changes in the 
adjoining Boscoreale Room. A small L has been built out 
into the area adjoining this room, for the accommodation of the 
cubictUum or chamber from Boscoreale, which has hitherto been 
set up in the middle of the floor, where the beauty of the frescoes 
was greatly obscured by insufficient light.. ^ In their new quarters 
they have excellent Ught from above, and with a mosaic floor 
copied from that of the original room, and the bronze "Eros" in 
the center, this cubiculum has now become one of the most 
attractive features of the Museum.

ANNUAL REPORT, 190B '^ 

The collection of reproductions of prehistoric art in Crete, ' 
MykeniE, etc., which has achieved great popularity, has been in- 
creased by a full-sized copy of the famous "Cup Bearer" from 
the palace at Knossos, and by several copies of other frescoes 
from the same site, all by the skilful hand of Mr, E. Gilli^ron, 
who is still engaged in copying for us, as well as for the Ashmo- 
lean Museum at Oxford, the more important examples of early 
Cretan art. 

Department of Paintings 

In addition to the regular routine work in the Department of 
Paintings the two special exhibitions mentioned ekewhere have 
been held^the Exhibition of Contemporary German Art, from 
January 4 to February 22, and the loan Exhibition of Dutch 
Paintings of the Seventeenth century, in connection with the 
Hudson-Fulton Celebration, from September 20 to Novem- 
ber 30. 

A temporary exhibition of some of the drawings belonging to 
the Museum was open to the public in July and August. The 
works shown were the drawings acquired in the last three years, 
together with examples chosen from the collections given by Mr. 
Cornelius Vanderbilt in 1880 and by Mr. Cephas G, Thompson 
in 1887. 

Galleries 17 and 18, in which are placed the pictures of the 
Wolfe collection, have been repainted 'and the pictures rear- 
ranged. Inasmuch as this collection has increased largely from 
purchases out of the Wolfe Fund Income since its installation in 
these galleries, and as the crowded condition prevented the pic- 
tures from being seen to advantage, it has been deemed advisable 
to space the paintings more openly. 

Progress is being accomplished in the work of grouping the 
pictures according to schools. 

Among the important acquisitions by gift during the year are 
eleven American paintings, including examples of the work of 
Blakclock, Twachtman, Ryder and Davies, from Mr. George A. 
Heam; two cassone fronts, school of Pesellino, from Mr. J. 
Pierpont Morgan ; " The Muse of Painting," by John La Farge, 
given by Mr. J. Pierpont Morgan and Mr, Henry Walters; 
Oxen Fording the Stream," by Von Zijgel, given by Mr. Adol-

phus Busch; "Portrait of Henry Clay," by S. F. B. Morse, given 
by Miss Grace H. Dodge. 

The department has been fortunate in the matter of loans, 
Mr. J. Pierpont Morgan having lent sixteen Dutch pictures of the 
seventeenth century, which formed part of the Hudson-Fulton 
Exhibition, in addition to many other interesting works. Mr. 
William A. Slater has lent his two Dutch pictures, which were 
shown in the Hudson-Fulton Exhibition. "The Dead Christ, 
with Angels," by Manet, and "The Woman with the Parrot," 
by Courbet, have been lent anonymously. 

The pictures purchased during the year include works by 
Lorenzo Monaco, Lorenzo di Credi, Montagna, Bronzino, 
Gerard David, etc. Prominent among the modem works pur- 
chased are: "The Sleep of Diana," by Corot; "Don Quixote," 
by Daumier; the sketch for "The Raft of the Medusa," by G^ri- 
cault,.and "Mother and Child," by Mary Cassatt.

Depaetment of Decorative Arts 
A new arrangement^more instructive and more esthetic — of 
the whole department has been planned, and will be finished 
within the next two or three months, which will make it easier for 
the public to find its way through the collections. Eastern Art 
will be separated from Western Art, and will occupy the larger 
part of the second floor of the Fifth Avenue side of the Museum. 
Western Art — European and American — will be placed in the 
new wing (Addition F), which has been built especially for the 
bousing of the Hoentschel collection, partly lent and partly given 
by Mr. J. Pierpont Morgan, and will contain this collection, com- 
bined with other material of a similar character. 

In the new arrangement the various materiab of one period 
are being grouped together (ceramics, furniture, metal work, tex- 
tiles, etc.) and the periods are arranged chronologically. East- 
em Art is arranged as follows : 

In coming up the mam staircase of the Museum, and turn- 
ing to the left, we find (i) Japanese Art, ceramics, lacquers, 




REPORT OF THE TRUSTEES 

bronzes, etc., corresponding to the Japanese Armor on the other 
side and (2) Chinese Art — (a) the Morgan Gallery, containing 
porcelains ; (b) on the three sides of the galleries the collections be- 
longing to the Museum, arranged chronologically, (c) the Bishop 
collection of jade. Adjoining this latter room will be found the 
Charles Stewart Smith collection of Japanese Art. The three 
rooms on the left of Addition E will contain the arts of the near 
East: (i) Saracenic Art, Syria and Asia Minor; (2) Persia; (3) 
the Moore collection, which is largely composed of the arts of the 
near East. 

Western Art is being arranged in the new Decorative Arts 
wing (Addition F). The details of arrangement will be pub- 
lished later in connection with the opening of this wing. 

A new system has been introduced for the arrangement of the 
textiles, as it is impossible to show all of the pieces in our textile 
collection, and it has been considered necessary to set apart a 
room in the basement for the purpose of study, which will be 
open for the public. In this room the textiles will be kept in 
cases and will be mounted on frames, so that they can be used at 
any time for the exhibition cases upstairs. The main exhibition 
of laces and textiles will be in the two remaining rooms on the 
east side of Addition E. The collections will be arranged chron- 
ologically as far as it is possible, and they will be displayed to 
much better advantage in the added space offered by these new 
galleries. There will be shown, also, some especially important 
pieces in the new rooms in the wing devoted to Decorative Arts 
(Addition F), which will illustrate the relation between textiles 
and other works of art of the same period. 

As medieval sculptiure is comparatively well represented, espe- 
cial attention has been given to enlarging the collection of re- 
naissance sculptures. Of the Italian sculpture of this period there 
have been added by purchase important examples of the Pisano 
School, of Verrocchio and Antonio Rossellino, and several bronze 
statuettes and plaquettes. In addition we have received as loans 
a relief by Andrea Bregno from Mr. J. Pierpont Morgan 
and a bust by Rossellino from Mr. George Blumenthal. 

The Spanish sculpture of the transition period, from the 
Gothic to the Renaissance, is now represented by a magnificent 

31 



ANNUAL REPORT, 1900 

large altar piece in alabaster, a gift of Mr. J. Pierpont Morgan, 
which will be shown in the large hall of the new wing above 
referred to. 

German Renaissance sculpture has been increased by several 
wood carvings and plaquettes (especially by Peter Floetner) by 
purchase, and a relief, "Visitation" (South German), the gift of 
Mr. George BlumenthaL 

Two important additions to the collection of decorative arts 
have been a Romanesque tabernacle, Italian, twelfth century, 
purchased, and a French Gothic window, a gift from Mr. Jai:xiues 
Seligman. 

The representation of Dutch art has been enlarged by the 
purchase of several cabinets, a bedstead, candelabra and pieces 
of glass of the twelfth century. 

For the eighteenth century art of England we have acquired 
two marble mantelpieces, one by Adam, and several pieces of 
furniture. 

The American side is most adequately represented by the 
addition of the Bolles collection of furniture, etc., seventeenth 
to early nineteenth century, the generous gift of Mrs. Russell 
Sage. 

A very important acquisition in the Textile Department has 
been the Blackbome collection of lace, one of the best private 
collections, containing nearly 700 pieces, which was acquired by 
subscription. Another valuable gift of 28 pieces has been re- 
ceived from Mrs. Philip S. Van Rensselaer, and two important 
loans, one from Mrs. James A. Stillman, should be recorded. 

The collection of tapestries has been increased by many inter- 
esting additions, the principal being three rich French tapestries 
of the early fifteenth century, and one Burgundian tapestry of 
the middle of the fifteenth century, acquired by purchase. 
Among the loans are the famous Mazarin tapestry, of Flemish 
workmanship, about 1500, lent by Mr. J. Pierpont Morgan, and 
two exceptional Flemish tapestries of the middle of the sixteenth 
century, lent by Mr. George BlumenthaL With these new ac- 
quisitions our collection may now be considered one of the finest. 
A catalogue of the textiles and one of the tapestries are being 
prepared,

REPORT OF THE TRUSTEES 

The Crosby Brown collection of Musical Instruments has 
been completely arranged and eighteen new specimens have been 
added. 

The collection of Eastern art has been increased by several 
splendid gifts from Mr. J. Pierpont Morgan, among which may 
be mentioned a Chinese screen of the K'ang-Hsi period and a 
collection of Chinese carved rhinoceros horns. Mr. Morgan has 
also added to his collection of Chinese porcelains in the Museum 
the Marsden Perry collection and numerous other specimens. 
A jade mountain, lent by Hon. Herbert N. Squires, is included 
among the year's additions to the collection of Chinese Art. 

Numerous interesting pieces of Persian and Syrian art of the 
thirteenth and fourteenth centuries have been acquired by pur- 

^ ^ ■ Collections of American Art 

The Museum has continued its policy of laying special em- 
phasis on the increase of its collections of American Art. Thirty- 
four pictures by American artists and eight sculptures by Amer- 
ican sculptors have been acquired during the year. 

The most notable addition on the American side, however, 
has been the whole of the famous collection of American furni- 
ture and allied arts brought together with rare intelligence and 
painstaking industry during the past twenty-five years by Mr. 
H. Eugene Bolles, of Boston. This collection covers the period 
extending from the earliest settlements in New England to the 
first quarter of the nineteenth century, and includes forty-two 
pieces exhibited in the Hudson-Fulton Exhibition, most of which 
are illustrated in its catalogue. It was the gift of Mrs. Russell Sage. 

The tentative lists of some of the best-known American paint- 
ers and sculptors, who either are not at all or are not adequately 
represented in our collections, have been corrected to date and 
are included in an appendix to this report as an urgent reminder 
to any of our members who can aid us in obtaining some of their 
representative works. 

Sculpture and Casts 

No separate departmental organization for Sculpture or Casts 
has been found necessary in the organization of the Museum. 
Sculpture pertaining to the Egyptian Department or the Classi-

ANNUAL REPORT, 1909 

cal Department naturally comes under the direction of the ci 
tor of each of these particular departments. That of the Gothic ' 
and Renaissance periods is for the present in charge of the 
Curator of Decorative Arts. Other sculpture and the coUectusi i 
of casts fall within the jurisdiction of the Assistant Director. 

Oriental Art 
For Oriental Art, also, no departmental organization has 
yet been made. It remains for the present under the Joint 
charge of our Director and Assistant Director and oitr Curator 
of Decorative Arts, 

Extensions to the Mosedm 

The past year witnessed the completion of the new extension 
to the building authorized February 2, 1904, after designs by 
Messrs. McKim, Mead & White, which, joining the main Fifth 
Avenue front at Eighty-third Street and stretching to the north 
138 feet, will form a connection with the north comer blocli, 
which will be the next addition. The second floor of this build- 
ing was thrown open to the public for the first time on the occa- 
sion of the opening of the Exhibition of German Paintings, and 
afterward for the Hudson-Fulton Exhibition. As explained 
elsewhere, this floor will eventually be given over to the display of 
the collections of decorative arts, except in the central room, 
which will be reserved for the temporary loan exhibitions, of 
which mention is made in another part of this report The 
first floor will be used for the Department of Egyptian Art. 

A second addition designed by Messrs. McKim, Mead & 
White, measuring 183 by 100 feet, and extending north from the 
part of the old building completed in 1892, has been turned over 
to us by the city, and will be opened to the public this spring. 
Into this extension, consisting of a lofty main hall, measuring 116 
by 42 feet, and twenty-four rooms surrounding it on two floors, 
will be brought the collection of European Decorative Arts, in- 
cluding the Hocntschel collection of French eighteenth century 
Art, presented by Mr. J. Pierpont Morgan in 1906, and the col- 
lection of Gothic Art lent by him. 

The extension built, also, after designs by Messrs. McKim, 
Mead & White, to house the Library, begun in the fall of 1908 



M 



REPORT OF THE TRUSTEES 

and completed last year, has not yet been occupied because of 
numerous delays. It is, however, hoped that it may be open for 
use this sunmier. 

A contract was awarded by the city toward the close of the 
last year for a new extension, with frontage of 212 feet to the 
north on Fifth Avenue, and of 144 feet running thence to the 
west. This wing will complete the east facade toward the north. 

Publications 

The catalogues and hand-books of the Museum collections 
number twenty-five. The sale of catalogues has been gratifying, 
12,481 copies of the various handbooks having been distributed 
in this way. The Catalogue of Arms and Armor and Volume I 
of the Catalogue of Musical Instruments are temporarily out of 
print. 

No new catalogues of Museum collections have been issued 
during the year. There are, however, several volumes now in 
active preparation, which it is hoped may be ready for publica- 
tion before the summer. Among these are a revised and en- 
larged catalogue of paintings, a catalogue of the collection 
of ceramics, except the Morgan collection, and a general 
handbook of the Cesnola collection of Cypriote antiquities, 
prepared by Prof. John L. Myres, of the University of Liver- 
pool. 

A new edition of the Constitution and By-Laws, with amend- 
ments and the Laws of the State, brought down to date, has been 
printed and is now ready for distribution. The Annual Report 
for 1908 was published in February, 1909, and the Bulletin has 
completed its fourth year. 

The official catalogue of the Hudson-Fulton Exhibition, in 
two octavo volumes, in two editions, one with and the other with- 
out illustrations, was prepared by members of the Staff. A 
catalogue de luxe of the Dutch paintings, with photogravure 
illustrations, will soon be issued by the Museum. 

The installation of a printing press last year for use in the 
printing of labels and small notices has proved of great value in 
the work of labeling old and new collections, through the great 
saving of time and expense which it affords. 

35 



ANNUAL REPORT, 1900 

The American Museum of Natural History, the Museum of 
the Brooklyn Institute, the New York Zoological Society and the 
New York Botanical Gardens have joined with the Museum in 
printing an illustrated poster, which is to be hung in public places 
like the ferry houses and the terminals of some of the railroads 
running into New York, for the convenience of those who may 
desire to visit these institutions. The poster gives a railroad map 
of the city, in colors, showing the location of these institutions, 
and, in separate panels, colored views of the museums and state- 
ments showing their location, means of access, hours of opening 
and their contents. 

Photographic Department 

An account of the organization of this department was given 
in the report for the year 1907. Its method of operation was 
described in the report for the year 1908. Its functions are dual ; 
in it all accessions are photographically reproduced as depart- 
mental records and by it our sales stall has been thoroughly 
equipped with prints of different sizes. 

The amount of work done by this department during the past 
year is illustrated by the following figures : 

The total number of photographs made and distributed was 
26,824, in addition to 2,092 made for the Hudson-Fulton Exhi- 
bition. Exclusive of the latter 13,928 were made for the oflScial 
records and departmental use, and 12,896 were delivered to the 
Sales Department. 5,877 photographs and half tones, aside 
from postal cards, were sold during the year. Besides our own 
prints a large number of photographs made by outside photo- 
graphers was sold in the Museum. 

There was received from the sale of these photographs and 
from royalties on photographs made by photographers outside 
the Museum $3,656.96. 

To meet the popular demand for postcards of recent acces- 
sions not published by the regular makers, our photographer has 
made and sold 5,854 copies of sixty-five different subjects. 

The Library 

The total number of volumes in the Library on December 31, 
was 18,394, and of photographs 27,289. Of these 1,694 volumes 

36 



REPORT OF THE TRUSTEES 

were added during the year — 121 as gifts; 6,875 photographs 
were added. 

There is a steady growth in the attendance at the Library. 
The number of readers this year has been 2,950, an increase of 
209 over the record for last year. 

It is hoped that when the Library collections]are moved from 
their present cramped quarters, where they have been housed 
since 1888, into the new building, where there will be ample 
room for books and readers alike, that its usefulness may be even 
further increased. The collection of study photographs will be 
kept in a separate room opening into the main hall of the Library, 
accessible for students and easily used in connection with the 
books. 

Special Loan ExHiBrriONS 

In the last report announcement was made of the forthcom- 
ing exhibition of German Art and of an exhibition to be held in 
cooperation with the Hudson-Fulton Celebration Commission in 
commemoration of the tercentenary of the discovery of the Hud- 
son River by Henry Hudson in 1609, and the centenary of the 
first use of steam in the navigation of the river by Robert Fulton 
in 1807. 

The exhibition of German paintings was held from Jan- 
uary 4 to February 22. In the manner of its organization as 
well as its scope, as was pointed out in the Bulletin at the time, 
this exhibition occupied a unique position among the under- 
takings of the Museum, and, indeed, among any presentations 
of foreign art which have ever been made in this country. First 
of all, the initiative did not come from the Museum itself but from 
the German government through Consul-General Biinz to the 
Trustees, asking in the name of his government, and with the 
special sanction of the Emperor, for the appropriation of space 
in our galleries for an exhibition of paintings and sculptures, 
which should be representative of the best German art of to-day. 
The exhibition was arranged without expense to the Museum, all 
the costs being met by friends of German art who were desirous 
of seeing it well represented in this country. The object of the 
exhibition was to introduce the German art of the present time 
to the people of America for the sake of gaining for it a wider 

37 




ANNUAL REPORT, 1909 

recognition and a better appreciation than it has hitherto had. 
As Professor Clemen says in his valuable Introduction to the 
Catalogue of the Exhibition. 

"It can be asserted confidently and without exaggeration that 
the living art of the Germany of lo-day is practically unknown lo 
the present-day American. ... It has been a matter of 
belief for some long time past in America that German art has 
been resting on its historic laurels and has fallen into a winter 
sleep. Scarcely any idea is entertained in America of the vigor- 
ous regeneration that has taken place in Germany during the last 
twenty years and of the strong artistic movement which, surging 
through the whole of Germany, is gaining more and more in 
depth and breadth, and which would fain engross the whole of 
public and domestic life." 

The Government Commission, under whose authority and 
with whose active cooperation the exhibition was arranged, con- 
sisted of the following members : 

Theodore Lcwald, of the Imperial Ministry of the Interior. 

Baron Hilmar von dem Bussche, of the Imperial Foreign 
Office. 

Paul Goetsch, of the Imperial Foreign Office. 

Friedrich Schmidt, Director of the Department of Art and 
Science of the Prussian Ministry of Education. 

William Bode, Director General of the Royal Museums, 
Berhn. 

Arthur Kampf, President of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts, 
Berlin. 

Karl Marr, Professor and Honorary Member of the Royal 
Academy of Fine Arts, Munich. 

Representative of the Commission in New York : Karl Biinz, 
German Consul -General, succeeded by Rudolf Franksen, 
German Consul- General. 

It was, however, to the generosity and energy of Mr. Hugo 
Reismger, upon wiiose shoulders the burden of the exhibition 
fell, that its success was mainly due. 

The total number of works of art included in the exhibition 
was 2iS, distributed as follows; Paintings in oil, 131; drawings 
and water colors, 59; sculptures, 28. 

38 



REPORT OF THE TRUSTEES 



Our part in the Hudson-Fulton Celebration is so recent and 
so well known as to hardly need recital here. The exhibition 
was arranged in cooperation with the Committee on Art Exhibits 
of the Celebration Commission, consisting of the following gen- 
tlemen : J. Pierpont Morgan, General Chairman of the Art and 
Science Committees; Robert W. de Forest, Chairman of the 
Committee on Art Exhibits; Sir C. Purdon Clarke, George A. 
Heam, George F. Kimz and Edward Robinson. The expenses 
incurred were substantially met by the Commission. The re- 
sponses from private collectors and public institutions to the 
appeals for loans of Dutch paintings, including works by Rem- 
brandt, Frans Hals, Vermeer and others, and of objects illustrat- 
ing American development in the industrial arts were cordial and 
generous in the extreme, enabling us to bring together an exhibi- 
tion which will long be remembered as one of the most important 
and significant ever held in this country. The number of paint- 
ings in the Dutch section was 143 ; of paintings by American 
artists, 53, and of other objects in the American section, 606.

The collection was opened to the public on September 20, 
and was continued on exhibition until the end of November. 
The galleries were thronged with visitors, the attendance for the 
time during which the exhibition remained open being 300,795. 

Future Loan Exhibitions 

The surprising resources of the community, as shown in the 
exhibition of Dutch paintings and the success of these endeavors 
to bring together exhibits of special character drawn from the 
rich private collections of the city and country, have confirmed the 
Trustees in their decision, announced last year, to adopt a policy 
of frequent loan exhibitions, and while the whole of the space 
which has been at their disposal since the erection of Extension E 
is no longer available, now that the plans for the arrangement of 
our own collections have been perfected, the largest room of the 
second floor of this recent addition has been set apart for the fur- 
therance of this idea. Plans are being laid for a series of small 
supplemental exhibits of more or less important character, the 
subjects of which will be announced from time to time in the 
Bidletin. 

A not inconsiderable interest was given to the opening of the 
recent loan exhibitions by the receptions or private views for the 
Trustees and members arranged in connection with them. In 
both instances these were well attended and did much to increase 
the interest in the work of the Museum.

photograplis and stereopticon lantern, has been in good use dur- 
ing the year for classes and lectures. The Museum Instructor, 
Mrs. Lucy O. Perkins, resigned her connection with the Museum 
in July, and her place was filled by the appointment of Miss 
Marion E, Fenton, a graduate of Wellesley College, a student ol 
the Art Students' League and of Teachers' College, Miss Fen- 
ton began her duties on September i. Of the 1,753 persons who 
have availed themselves of the services of the Instructor 1,473 
have been teachers and their classes in the public schools; the 
remaining 280 have been members and visitors. 

The number of permits issued to copyists working hi the gal- 
leries was 1,109, ^^^ ^^^ permits to photographers were 63. 

A series of meetings for teachers in the public schools, organ- 
ized by^the Art League of the Public Education Association, has 
been held in the Class Room, with addresses by Charles H, 
Coffin, Luke Vincent Lockwood and others, on the Hudson- 
Fulton exhibits. An illustrated lecture on "American Silver- 
smiths of the Seventeenth and Eighteenth Centuries and Their 
Work" was dchvered to the members of the Jewelers' Board of 
Trade by Mr. R, T. Haines Halsey at the Museum on the eve- 
ning of November 20. 

With the completion of a well-equipped Lecture Room, seat- 
ing four hundred, in the new Fifth Avenue extension, the 
Museum will be in a position to carry on the courses of lectures 
which, begun in 1872 and continued until 1902, were then inter- 
rupted by the lack of a proper audience hall. 

Among the lecturers in Museum courses of the past have been 
Sir F. Seymour Haden, Charles Eliot Norton, Rodolfo Lanciani, 
Alexander S. Murrayand John La Farge. As soon as plans may 
be matured it is hoped to continue this part of the Museum work, 
so long recognized by the Trustees as an important element of 
Museum influence.

■ Unusual and onerous duties have fallen upon the Registrar 

H during the year, including the receipt and return of the 218 dif- 

^m ferent objects included in the^Exhibition of Contemporary Ger- 

^1 man Art, and of the entire Hudson-Fulton Loan Exhibit. All 



REPORT OF THE TRUSTEES 

^ tiis was in addition to the usual duties of this oflSce in a period of 
'Unusual general Museum activity. So far as is now ascertained 
^liere has not been a single instance of damage orof failureon the 
I^art of lenders to receive back objects lent by them without loss 
^^r delay. 

Conclusion 

The report of last year closed with the following paragraph : 

"If any thoughtful and constant visitor at the Museum were 
'to look back and contrast his impressions at the beginning and 
the close of the year, with a view to determine wherein the 
Museum had made its greatest advance during that period, it 
would not be in any single new object or group of such objects, 
but in the steady and orderly progress which has been made in 
rounding out and developing its collections, notably on the side 
of industrial art, and in the improvement of their arrangement 
both from a scientific and an esthetic viewpoint." 

This conclusion would undoubtedly be repeated by such a 
visitor at the close of the present year with even greater emphasis, 
and perhaps with the thought that we are reaching the limit of 
our attainment. It would represent, however, only the opinion 
of the visitor looking at the Museum, so to speak, from without. 
Looked at from within, from the standpoint of the Trustees, with 
greater progress has come a higher ideal of Museum eflSciency, 
and while greater resources have opened up new opportunities 
far greater opportunities are in sight, which only greater re- 
sources can make available. 

With the increase in the number and growth of museums at 
home and abroad, without any correspondinrj increase in the 
examples of ancient art which can be secured, the opportunities 
to secure them grow fewer and the prices at which any can be 
secured grow higher. The change in our tariflF, admitting free 
paintings and sculptures more than twenty years old, and ad- 
mitting free other objects of art more than one hundred years 
old, is already bringing to America a large number of objects 
of art of the highest grade. This not only gives broader oppor- 
tunities for purchase to our museums but, more particularly, 
it encourages private purchase, which will ultimately enure to 

43 



ANNUAL REPORT, 1900 

the benefit of the public through our museums, by the generosity 
of private owners. 

The extension of our Museimi, notable as it is, does not keep 
pace with the enlargement of our collections, and with every in- 
crease of our collections and enlargement of space comes in- 
creased expense of administration. The budget for the present 
year, wherein we are opening two new wings, is necessarily over 
$300,000, and the appropriation by the city toward meeting it is 
only $200,000. American generosity seems to set no limit to the 
growth of our collections, even with the radical suppression of 
what is inferior, and the exhibition of only that which is distinctly 
superior, which is the policy of our Museum. The limitations 
which give us most anxiety are those of exhibition space and 
increased cost of administration.

MEMORIAL RESOLUTIONS 

T the meeting of the Board of Trustees held October 
i8, 1909, the following resolutions were adopted : 



IN MEMORIAM 

RUTHERFUED StUYVESANT 

TRUSTEE OF THE METROPOLITAN MUSEUM OF ART 1870-I909 

The death of Rutherfurd Stuyvesant in Paris, France, oh 
July 4, 1909, removed from its Board of Trustees the last but one 
of the Founders of The Metropolitan Museum of Art. This 
signifies a service to this institution on Mr. Stuyvesant's part of 
nearly forty years' duration. From 1875 ^^ 1884 he was a mem- 
ber of its Executive Committee, and for a number of years served 
as Chairman of the Committee on Paintings and Sculpture, but 
his taste, it appears, inclined more especially to arms and armor, 
of which he was one of the earliest collectors in this country. 
That he was a careful and judicious one is shown by the many 
choice, rare and valuable pieces he gathered about him in his 
beautiful home at Tranquillity Farms, near Hackettstown, N. J. 
(the ancestral home of his family). Following this bent of his 
mind he was, naturally, first and foremost among the Trustees in 
endeavoring to secure examples of this branch of industrial art 
for the Museum, and was largely instrumental in obtaining for it 
the Ellis and Dino collections, which raised the armor collec- 
tion of the Museum to European rank. 

Although absent from the City much of his time within the 
last ten or fifteen years — an absence which constrained him to 
resign the ofl&ce of First Vice-President of the Board of Trustees, 
which he held in 1906 — Mr. Stuyvesant's attachment to the Mu- 
seum seems never to have abated. When at home he was most 
regular in his attendance at the meetings of the Board of Trustees, 
and when abroad he was ever mindful of the welfare and prompt 
to further by word and deed, when opportimity offered, the inter- 

45 



I 



ANNUAL REPORT, 1909 

ests of the institulion with which he was connected, one may say, 
from his youth up, for he was but twenty-eight years of age when 
he became a Trustee, 

By Mr. Stuyvesant's death the Museum loses an old and tried 
friend and its Trustees the companionship of a genial and uni- 
formly kind and courteous member of their Board. 
m UEMORIAM 

John Ckosby Brown 

trustee of the metropolitan museum of art 1893-i909 

John Crosby Brown, Treasurer of The Metropolitan Museum 
of Art, died at his summer residence in Orange, N. J,, on June 
25,1909. He was elected a Trustee of the Museum on February 
20, 1893, but resigned later in the year. He was elected again on 
November 18, 1895, and served continuously until his death. 
He became Treasurer of the Museum in 1905, and from that 
time gave constant, active and efficient care not only to the duties 
of Treasurer but to the many details connected with the manage- 
ment and operation of the Museum building. 

The Crosby Brown collection of musical instruments of all 
nations was given to the Museum in 1889 by Mrs. Brown, with 
the understanding that she should have full charge of its arrange- 
ment during her lifetime, and be free to make any additions or 
changes which she saw fit. Mr. Brown has always been an 
enthusiastic coworker with his wife in making and enlarging this 
valuable collection, which now occupies five galleries in the 
Museum and is one of the most complete collections of musical 
instruments existing in any part of the world. 

Mr, Brown's public service was by no means confined to our 
own Museum, His sphere of action was singularly broad. He 
was graduated from Columbia College in the class of 1859, 
where he stood at the head of his class. Soon afterward he 
entered his ancestral firm, the well-known banking house of 
Brown Brothers & Co,, of which he has been for many years the 
head. He had large religious, educational and philanthropic 
interests. For many years he was an elder in the Madison 
Square Presbyterian Church, beginning under the pastorate of 
Dr. William Adams, his father-in-law. He was one of the lead- 



A 



MEMORIAL RESOLUTIONS 

ing Trustees of the Union Theological Seminary, of which he 
-was President at the time of his death. He was a Trustee of 
Columbia University, his Alma Mater. 

Mr. Brown was a patriotic citizen, always ready to bear his 
share of public burdens, and always to be f oimd among the advo- 
cates of righteousness, straightforwardness and considerate deal- 
ings in public matters. He had a large acquaintance with public 
men at home and abroad, and although he never held public 
oflBce he exerted an influence not the less potent that it was quiet. 
It was a fitting recognition of his eminence in many relations of 
life when the degree of LL.D. was conferred upon him by 
Williams College in 1907. 

in memoriam 

Charles Follen McKim 

trustee of the metropolitan museum of art 189s-i909 

Charles Follen McKim, a Trustee of The Metropolitan Mu- 
seum since 1895, died at St. James, Long Island, on September 
14, 1909. The Trustees of the Museum feel it a duty at this 
their first meeting since his death to place upon their minutes an 
appreciation of the dignity and achievements of his life, of the 
great services rendered by him to education and the improvement 
of public taste. 

Mr. McKim was bom in Chester County, Pa., August 24, 
1847, of sturdy and intellectual stock. His artistic leanings led 
him in 1866 and 1867 to the Harvard Scientific School as a special 
student, and afterward to the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris, 
where he studied until 1870. In 1872, after spending some fur- 
ther time in travel and study, he returned to this coimtry and 
soon after began the practice of his profession in the City of 
New York, forming a partnership with his lifelong friend, 
WiUiam R. Mead, of which firm Stanford White soon after 
became a member. 

The success of Mr. McKim and his firm was rapid and 
remarkable. The fact that it was difl5cult to ascertain, as to any 
particular work, which member of the firm was entitled to the 
principal credit, proved the unselfish relation of its members to 
one another, and to Mr. McKim and his associates are due the 

47 



ANNUAL REPORT, 1909 

architectural features of the Boston Public Library, the Madison 
Square Garden, the Library of Columbia University, the Uni- 
versity Club, the Brooklyn Institute of Arts and Sciences, Mr. 
Morgan's Library, the Pennsylvania Station in New York, and 
a number of other noble and beautiful buildings, private and 
public, throughout the entire country. 

Great, however, as have been Mr, McKim's achievements in 
the particular practise of his profession, and prominent as are the 
monuments he has raised to his own reputation, his profession is 
in his debt to a still larger degree for his unselfish efforts to fuse 
the individual workers in architecture throughout the country 
into a profession — to raise its standards and to better its oppor- 
tunities for cultivation and improvement. 

He was thoroughly conscious of the difference between things 
beautiful— simply, grandly beautiful — and the meritorious and 
the pretty, and this lesson he labored to teach during his entire life. 

The plan of improvement of the City of Washington, to which 
he largely contributed by his time and energy, and the Founda- 
tion of the American Academy in Rome, to which he generously 
contributed in life and to which he bequeathed his fortune, 
testify to his constant and unselfish public service. 

He naturally became the President of the Institute of Archi- 
tects and, as the highest evidence of the regard in which he was 
held, received in 1903 the King's medal tlirough the Royal Insti- 
tute of British Architects. Har\'ard gave him the degree of M,A. 
in 1893, Columbia that of Litt.D. in r904 and the University of ] 
Pennsylvania the degree of LL.D. in r909. 

His particular work for the Museum consisted largely in his 1 
efforts toward the perfection of a general plan^the construction 
of the North Wing ujion Fifth Avenue, the special building for 
the Hoentschel collection and the Library. It is to be deeply 
regretted that he was not spared to complete these undertakings. 

In private life he possessed in rare measure the gift of charm 
and attractiveness. Personal acquaintance with him developed 
as surely into affection as knowledge of his professional attain- 
ments created respect, and had he possessed no professional or 
public claim to general esteem he would have been noted as a 1 
most unusual and attractive personality. 1 

48 ; 



MEMORIAL RESOLUTIONS 

His public career and unostentatious private life will cause 
him to be long remembered with high appreciation and grateful 
thanks. 

AT a meeting of the Board of Trustees held December 20, 
JnL 1909, the following resolutions were adopted : 

in memoriam 
John Stewart Kennedy 

TRUSTEE OF THE METROPOLITAN MUSEUM OF ART 1889-I909 

VICE-PRESIDENT 1905-1909 
MEMBER OF THE EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE I90O-I909 

John Stewart EIennedy died at his home in New York on 
the 31st of October, 1909. 

As Trustee for more than twenty years, as a member of its 
Executive Committee for more than nine years, and as one of its 
Vice-Presidents since 1905, Mr. Kennedy gave to the aflFairs of 
the Museum the same constant, regular and careful attention 
which he gave to the affairs of every institution with which he 
consented to be officially connected. He was always to be found 
punctually in his seat at any Board or Committee meeting. 
From the outset he took an active and, on the business side, a 
forceful interest in all the affairs of the Museum. 

He was very modest in asserting any opinion on questions of 
artistic merit, but never hesitated to express himself in regard to 
the functions of the Museum as one of the great educational in- 
stitutions of the City, and of its duties and opportunities in that 
relation. The important educational place taken by the Mu- 
seum, from his point of view, in our national and municipal life, 
is illustrated not only by his having given to it as large a share of 
his estate as is given to any other institution, but in his grouping 
it with the New York Public Library and Columbia University 
as one of the four residuary legatees to whom portions of his 
residuary estate would pass in the event of certain individual 
legatees dying without issue. 

His first gift to the Museum was Leutze's celebrated painting 
of "Washington Crossing the Delaware." With his customary 
forethought he consulted the late Samuel P. Avery as to the expe- 

49 



AKNDAL REPOKT. IflOB 

flicocy of this gift, making sure that it would be wdoomed by his 
fellow Trustees. He was quite aware of the fact that the ioteresl 
of this picture is rather patriotic and historic than artistic, but it 
was characteristic of his point of view toward the Museum that 
this was no adequate reason against his presenting it or the 
Museum's receiving it — a judgment on his part which has been 
amply justified by the interested attitude of visitois, particulaiiy 
the children from our schools, toward this well-known [MCture. 

Mr. Kennedy's interest in the Museum, great as it was, con- 
stituted only one point in his singularly broad horizon. With 
him, giving, whether of bis own personal ser\-ice or of his own 
means, was not the pursuit of any fad or gratification of any 
individual taste. It was the recognition of his duty toward his 
fellow men and of his sense of stewardship toward God, 

He prefaces the notable ^fts to public purposes contained in 
hi» will by that remarkable passive in which he described himself 
as " Having been greatly prospered in the business which he car- 
ried on for more than thirty years in this his adopted country, 
and being, therefore, desirous of leaving some expression of his 
sympathy with its religious, charitable, benevolent and educa- 
tional institutions." His legacies are quite as broad as his 
desire. It was, doubtless, the same sense of duty which led him 
to give most largely to the institutions of the City of New York, 
in which he had been so "prospered," as well as to those of the 
country in which that City is situated, and equally consistent with 
that sense of duly that he should not forget his native Scotland 
and the Far East. 

Ilia death brings a common loss to our city and country, to 
the many public activities in which he took an important part, 
and, not least, to the circle of our own Trustees, to many of whom 
he stood in a close relation of personal friendship. 

m UEMORIAM 

William Maceay Laffan 

T2DSTEE 1905-1909 
MEMBER OF TKE EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE 1905-1909 

William M. Laffan died at his home in Lawrence, Long ' 
Island, on November 19, 1909. 



I 



MEMORIAL RESOLUTIONS 

He was elected a Trustee of the Museum, a member of its 
Executive Committee and a member of its Committee on Pur- 
chases in January, 1905. He also served as Chairman of the 
Conmiittee on Oriental Art. 

Mr. LaflFan was bom in Ireland in January, 1848, and was 
educated at Trinity College, Dublin. In selecting a profession 
he was for some time undecided between literature and art. He 
spent several years in London and Paris, and in 1866 he came to 
the United States. 

He was possessed of a wonderful memory, which became a 
storehouse of literature and of facts, and from which nothing 
escaped. He could as easily repeat the Odes of Horace as give a 
digest of the Presidents' messages to congress for the past 
twenty years, and describe objects of art which he had seen but 
once, twenty years before. He possessed such knowledge and 
personal qualities as endeared him to artists, scholars, savants 
and all lovers of beautiful things, both in Europe and America, 
and made him their chosen friend and companion. Unassuming 
and gentle in his own life and intercourse with others, his abomi- 
nation was a hypocrite or a pretender, and by intuition he seemed 
to recognize such an one at sight. 

He had that quality of analysis and construction by which he 
quickly collected and correlated facts and then presented in clear- 
cut and simple English praise or censure, without fear or hesita- 
tion. 

Because of his own extended art intuitions and studies and 
of the intimate relations which he maintained with the art and 
museum authorities in Europe, his value to the Museum was far 
greater than the public knew, and for this reason its loss is a 
great one. His interest and devotion to the aims of the Trustees, 
and particularly to those of its President, for the development of 
the Museum were unlimited, and he gave generously all that was 
in him of usefulness to the Museum in every department of its 
activities. 

Perhaps not very often are found conjoined in the same indi- 
vidual in equal degree the refinement and sureness of artistic 
perception and the instinctive understanding of values and prac- 
tical achievements. 



ANNUAL REPORT, 1900J 

Q The depths of his friendship, like his couiage, were ondemon- 
strative but without limit, and his personal intenxniise was never 
of his troubles but of his friends' pleasures and interests. 

The Trustees express in this form their personal sonow at the 
loss of a loyal associate, and they record here their high appfeda- 
tion of the services rendered the Museimi by Mr. LafiFan. 

in icehoriam 

Charles Stewart Sioth 

trustee of tiie hetropolitan museum of art 1889-i909 

member of the executive committee 1896-i909 

The Trustees of the Metropolitan Museum of Art have 
learned with profound regret of the death since their last meeting 
of their late associate, Charles Stewart Smith, and they desire to 
put on record their high appreciation of his services to the Mu- 
seum and of the very serious loss which it has sustained in his 
lamented death. 

Mr. Smith has been an active member of the Board of 
Trustees for more than twenty years, and during that entire 
ixjriod he devoted himself with imtiring assiduity to the interests 
of the Museum. Being himself a lover of art and a notable col- 
lector and, at the same time, deeply interested in the welfare of 
the City, he appreciated at its true value the importance of the 
relations between the Museum and the City from an educational 
|)oint of view, and was most useful and influential in promoting 
those relations to the mutual advantage of both. 

His active and effective business habits, which he carried into 
the service of the Museum after the close of a most honorable and 
successful business career with unfailing zeal and earnestness, 
were of signal value to us. 

His participation in the work of our Building Conmiittee, in 
connection with the construction of the buildings which the City 
has from time to time erected for the use of the Museum, was 
most efTicicnt and valuable. 

While his death is justly regarded as a severe loss to the City, 
which he had served^well and faithfully in many capacities, his 
fellow Trustees in this Museum have special and peculiar reasons 

sa 



MEMORIAL RESOLUTIONS 

to mourn his loss — his death being the sixth in the waning ranks 
of the Board in the brief space of six months. 

His public spirit, his fidelity to every trust and duty, his wise 
devotion at all times to the advancement of the best interests of 
the Museum and his kind and courteous intercourse with his 
associates and with the Director and Acting Director will not be 
forgotten and will not be easily replaced.

DESIDERATA 
AMERICAN PAINTINGS 

AND 

SCULPTURE 



DESIDERATA 
AMERICAN PAINTINGS AND SCULPTURE 

The following list is reprinted from the Annual Report for 1905 and 
1906 with changes made necessary by recent additions. It was prepared by 
Mr. George H. Story in consultation with the following Trustees : Frederick 
Dielman, President of the National Academy of Design, Daniel Chester 
French and Robert W. de Forest, Secretary. 

It contains the names of some of the best-known deceased American 
artists, who either are not at all or are not adequately represented in the 
Museum collections. It is believed that the Museum should have in its gal- 
leries at least one or two distinctly characteristic pictures of those artists who 
represent historically the development of American painting. There are 
included in the list those artists who are now represented, it may be, by 
several pictures, but of whom the Museum would be glad to have one or 
more works which may be distinctly classed as masterpieces. What the 
Museum desires is quality rather than quantity. This list is tentative and 
not inclusive. The more important names are indicated with an asterisk :

REPORT 



FORTY-FIRST ANNUAL REPORT OF THE 

TRUSTEES OF THE MUSEUM 

FOR THE YEAR ENDING 

DECEMBER 31, 1910 



THE salient events in the history of the Museum during 
the past year have been the resignation of Sir Caspar 
Purdon Clarke as Director; the election of Edward Rob- 
inson as his successor; the filling of three vacancies left by death 
in the Board of Trustees by the election of Frank D. Millet, 
J. Pierpont Morgan, Jr., and John G. Johnson; the continuance 
of our policy of special loan exhibitions by an exhibition of 
James A. McNeill Whistler's paintings and the recent rug exhi- 
bition ; the opening of the new central wing to the north, in which 
the collection of decorative arts has been installed; the comple- 
tion and occupation of the new library, and, last but not least, 
the largest number of accessions of objects of art which the 
Museum has ever received in any one year. 

The annual meeting of the Corporation, held on February 21, 
was the fortieth in the history of the Museum. Historical ad- 
dresses were made on this occasion by Joseph H. Choate, the 
only surviving member of our original Board of Trustees, and by 
George F. Comfort, Director of the Syracuse Museum of Fine 
Arts, John Q. A. Ward and Theodore Weston, who with Messrs. 
Choate and Comfort were incorporators of the Museum in 1870. 
Of these four, two — Professor Comfort and Mr. Ward — have 
passed away during the year. 

Su: Caspar Purdon Clarke left the Museum in ill health on 
leave of absence in May, 1909, but confidently expected to 
return. This proved to be contrary to the advice of his physi- 

19 



ANNUAL REPORT, 1910 

cians, and his resignation was presented and accepted on June 34, 
1910, when the following resolution was adopted ; 

Resolved, That in accepting the resignation of Sir 
Caspar Purdoo Clarke, as Director, the Trustees of the 
Metropolitan Museum of Art desire to congratulate him 
upon the degree to which his health has been restored 
and to express their regret that that restoration is not 
sufficient to warrant continued residence in America 
during the winter season. 

By his geniality and kindly manner, as well as by 
his broad, artistic sympathies, he has endeared himself 
to a large and constantly increasing circle of friends, not 
only in our own city but throughout the whole United 
States. His long and varied museum experience in 
Europe and the Far East, which was crowned with the 
directorship of the famous Victoria and Albert Museum 
in London, better known, perhaps, as the South Ken- 
sington Museum, a position which he resigned to take 
the directorship of our own Metropolitan Museum of 
Art, made his services of special value to us, and his 
sympathy with all kinds of artistic development, modem 
as well as ancient, and notably with industrial art, has 
helped to give our Museum the breadth of development 
which it has manifested during the last five years in 
which he has held office. 

Sir Purdon Clarke was requested to continue his connection 
with the Museum in the position of Honorary European Corre- 
spondent, to which he consented. 

The duties of Director in the absence of Sir Purdon Clarke 
fell upon our Assistant Director, Dr. Edward Robinson, by 
whom they were discharged until his unanimous election to the 
position made vacapt by Sir Purdon's retirement, at a meeting 
of the Board held October 31, 

The Staff 
Miss Caroline M. Ransom, Ph.D., has been appointed an 
Assistant Curator in the Department of Egyptian Art. She 
comes to the Museum from Bryn Mawr College, where for the 
past five years she had been head of the Department of Archaeol- 
ogy and Art. Miss G, M. A. Richter, Assistant in the Department 
of Classical Antiquities, was advanced to the position of Assistant 



i 



M 



REPORT OF THE TRUSTEES 

Curator of this Department in June, and Miss Frances Morris, 
who has been connected with the Museum as an Assistant since 
1896, has been promoted to a like position in the Department of 
Decorative Arts. 

Attendance 

The attendance for the year was 744,449, a large decrease as 
compared with the previous year, when the Museum had the 
attraction of the Hudson-Fulton Exhibition. Of this number 
6,620 were students. The number of students in the previous 
year was 5,857. 

Membership 

Our members now number 3,814, divided as follows : 

Fellows in Perpetuity 316 

Fellows for Life 147 

Fellowship Members, contributing $100 per annum 772 
Sustaining Members, contributing $25 per annum. 264 
Annual Members, contributing $10 per annum 2,315 

After the deduction of loss through death and resignation 
there was a net gain of 64 members, as compared with the 
number of last year. From the list of Honorary Fellows for 
Life we have lost two members — Sir Francis Se)maLOur Haden, the 
distinguished etcher, and George F. Comfort, a founder of the 
Museum. Two have been added by the election of Mr. C. F. 
Williams and Senor Don Federigo Gamboa. 

Expenses of Administration and Maintenance 

The expenditiure for administration and maintenance during 
the year has amounted to $324,587.89. The city contributed 
$200,000 toward the payment of this amount; $8,002 was re- 
ceived from admissions on pay days and the balance was made 
up from members' dues, interest on general endowment, contri- 
butions of members and trustees and other sources. The year 
closed with a deficit which has since been made up, largely by 
special contributions of trustees.

ANNUAL REPORT. 1910 



Legacies 



By the will of the late Darius Ogden Mills, an unconditional 
legacy of $100,000 has been received, which has been added to 
the General Endowment Fund. A legacy of $20,000 was left by 
Rutherfurd Stuyvesant, the income from which is to be apphed 
to the purposes of the Museum. 

Bequests of objects of art have been received from the late 
Mrs. Thomas E. O. Marvin; from the late Mrs. Jesse Seligman 
of her superb collection of laces, which under the terms of the 
will is to be designated as the Henrietta Seligman Lace Collec- 
tion; and from the late James T. Woodward of a large set of 
Lowestoft porcelain known as the "Chase Collection." 

Accessions 

The accessions numbered 10,521 objects of art, of which 
7,746 were by gift or bequest, and 2,283 by purchase. Of these 
accessions 59 were paintings and 41 sculptures. In explana- 
tion of this large number of accessions it should be noted that, 
as in the preceding year, it includes two large collections of small 
objects, the Murch Collection of Egyptian antiquities, presented 
by Miss Helen Miller Gould, and a collection of Japanese 
netsukes, presented by Mrs. Russell Sage. 

Among the more important acquisitions the following deserve 
mention : To the collection of paintings our late Trustee, Mr, Wil- 
liam M. Lallan, has presented a Spanish altarpiece of the fifteenth 
century; Mr. George A. Heam has given 19 paintings, to be 
added to his previous munificent donations, now assembled in 
two galleries bearing his name ; Mr. J. Pierpont Morgan has 
donated an altarpiece, representing "The Assumption," by the 
Siennese painter of the fifteenth century known as Bcnvenuto da 
Giovanni, while we have acquired by purchase "Venus and Mats 
Bound by Cupid," by Paolo Veronese, and "The Wolf and Fox 
Hunt," by Peter Paul Rubens. 

From the late Mr. John Stcmme has been received his col- 
lection of ceramics, glass, ivories and metalwork, chiefly Ger- 
man, of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. 

The collections of sculpture have been enriched by gifts from 
Edward D, Adams, George Blumenthal, Jacob H. Schiff, 



REPORT OF THE TRUSTEES 

Edward Amhold and Thomas F. Ryan, who, besides a copy of 
the marble group, "Pygmalion and Galatea," by Rodin, given 
in memory of William M. Laffan, has given the sum of $25,000 
for the purchase of works by this master. 

The collection of laces has been endowed by gifts from sev- 
eral donors in memory of Mrs. William H. Herriman, from Miss 
Margaret Taylor Jolmston, Mrs. James Boorman Johnston and 
Mrs. Edward Luckemeyer. 

A gift in memory of the late Clyde Fitch, by his father and 
mother, Captain and Mrs. William G. Fitch, includes furniture 
of the period of the Empire. 

For the Department of Armor gifts have been received from 
William H. Riggs, Marshall C. LefiFerts, and others. A remark- 
able collection of Japanese armor, consisting of 12 harnesses, 
with mountings and arms, was the gift of Dr. George M. LefiFerts. 

The Department of Oriental Art has received the noted 
addition heretofore mentioned, the collection of Japanese net- 
sukes numbering 2,546, given by Mrs. Russell Sage. 

^The most important single gift in any department has been 
the famous Murch Collection of rare scarabs, seal cylinders and 
other objects of Egyptian art, added to our Egyptian Depart- 
ment by Miss Helen Miller Gould, a description of which will be 
found in a special supplement to the January Bulletin. 

Loans 

The loans received during the year, numbering 6,527, have 
been of unusual importance and interest. Our President, Mr. J. 
Pierpont Morgan, has made many valuable additions to his collec- 
tion of Chinese porcelains, including the whole of the J. Marsden 
Perry Collection, which contains many pieces of xmusual 
excellence. He has generously allowed to remain on exhibition- 
many of them for the whole year — the Dutch paintings sent to 
the Hudson-Fulton Exhibition from his home in London, and he 
has deposited with us the exceptionally imique collection of 
Rouen faience and other French wares, known as'the Le Breton 
Collection. The valuable collection of Merovingian antiquities, 
consisting of 280 objects in gold, silver and bronze, and known as 

23 



ANNUAL REPORT, 1910 

the Stanislas Baion Collection, and the supplementary coUectioii 
of 410 objects of eaiiy Germanic antiquities in various materials, 
known as the Queckenberg-Niederbreisig Collection, are now to 
be seen in our galleries through Mr. Moigan's kindness. 

Mr. and Mrs. V. Everit Macy have added to the collection of 
Italian faience deposited with us several rare pieces; Mr. Lock- 
wood de Forest has sent examples of Indian art; Mr. Otto H. 
Kahn his portrait group of Frans Hals; Captain Philip M. 
Lydig, Italian sculpture; Mr. George Blumenthal, sculptures 
and tapestries, while Mr. Theodore M. Davis, Honorable A. T. 
Clearwater, Mr. Philip Hiss and others have placed in our gal- 
leries for temporary display objects from their collections. 

Departmental Development 

a. Department of Egyptian Art 

The Egyptian Department has continued the development of 
its collections during the past year on the lines adopted when the 
department was instituted in 1906. The principal basis for this 
development lies in the results of the excavations carried on by 
the Museum's Expedition in Egypt. During the season of 
1909-1910 the work of the Expedition centered in the clearing of 
the Temple of Hibis at Kharga Oasis, from which interesting 
historical results were obtained relative to the various periods 
represented by the construction of the temple, new scenes and 
texts were discovered on the temple walls, and important archi- 
tectural and other material resulting from the work was added 
to our collection in the Museum. Included in the latter is a 
large composite pap)Tus-capital of painted sandstone, with ex- 
cellent preservation of color. A large number of photographic 
negatives were made of the many scenes represented on both the 
interior and exterior of the temple, while the texts and inscrip- 
tions, which were also recorded photographically, were supple- 
mented in many cases by hand copies, for publication. A de- 
tailed report of the excavations has been given in the Bulletin. 

During the present winter the Expedition is engaged in 
carrying on to completion its work on the Temple of Hibis, and 
has also begun work on new concessions of Thebes granted to it 

24 



REPORT OF THE TRUSTEES 

in November by the Egyptian Government. Of the points 
included in these concessions one of the most important is the 
site of the palace of Smenhetep III and Queen Tii, a short dis- 
tance to the south of the Temple of Medinet Habu, on the west 
bank of Thebes. The excavation of the ruins of the palace is 
now being carried out by the Expedition and gives promise of 
yielding most interesting results. 

The work of rearrangement of the Egyptian collection in the 
Museum on a chronological basis, and its installation in a series of 
ten rooms in Wings D and E, has continued through the year 
and has now reached a stage where the opening of the collection 
for exhibition can be assured in the early autumn. In connection 
with the installation of the material very complete chemical tests 
and experiments have been made relative to the preservation of 
color on Egyptian painted relief sculpture and also in methods of 
treatment of Egyptian limestone to prevent disintegration. The 
results of these experiments have proved so successful in their 
application to the very large amount of painted temple-relief 
from the Museum's excavations at Lisht, that it is hoped they 
may prove of value to other museums concerned in the same 
problems. 

^ The Egyptian collection has been very greatly enriched dur- 
ing the year through the gift by Miss Helen Miller Gould, of the 
Murch Collection. This collection, which was formed by Dr. 
Chauncey Murch during a residence of nearly twenty-five years 
at Luxor, when in charge of the American Presbyterian Mis^on, 
is well known as comprising one of the strongest collections of 
scarabs and seal cylinders — altogether 1,003 samples — that has 
yet been found, and it is almost equally important in its represen- 
tation of various forms of amulets. Many other classes of objects 
which are also well represented, such as ushabti figures, alabaster 
and other stone vases, and types of beads and ornament, render 
the collection, which has a total number of 3,370 objects, one of 
the most important gifts which the department has ever received. 

Very valuable gifts and loans to the collection have also been 
made during the year by Mr. Theodore M. Davis, and included 
among the latter is a series of objects of unique archaeological and 
historical importance from his excavations in the Valley of the 

as 



k 



ANNUAL REPORT, 1910 

Kings at Thebes. Among these are the alabaster canopic-jar, I 
with portrait-head of Queen Tii, from the tomb of that Queen; 
14 vases and other objects in blue-glaze from the tomb of 
Thothmes IV, and 14 model tools, implements and similar ob- 
jects from the foundation deposit of the tomb of Queen Hatsbep 
sut. 

Out of the income from the Rogers Fund a very considerable 
amount of material has been added to the collection by purchases, 
principally from the Egyptian government, which have been 
made possible through the iriendly interest of Prof. Gaston 
Maspero, Director-General of Antiquities at Cairo. Among 
these are six Ptolemaic bronzes of unusual size, found at Mil 
Rahineh on the site of the ancient Memphis; a red granite col- 
umn with palm-leaf capital, twenty-one feet in height, from the 
Pyramid Temple of King Sahura at Abusir, and 126 examples of 
early Christian architectural ornament, dating from the fifth to 
the seventh centuries, comprising sculptured capitals, cornices, 
moldings and similar detail, from the Church of St. Jeremias at 
Sakkara, the result of excavations made on the site during the 
past three years by the Egyptian Government. 

b. Department of Classical Art 
The collection of original works of Greek and Roman art 
continues to grow in size, in importance, and in popular interest 
Indeed, the friends of the Museum who are familiar with the 
constantly increasing difficulty of acquiring really good speci- 
mens of this art, and their proportionate increase in cost, must 
view with peculiar satisfaction the success which the Museum 
has had in developing this collection in spite of discouraging 
conditions. The accessions of this year have all been by pur- ' 
chase, mostly out of income from the Rogers Fund, and include 
12 marbles, 10 bronzes, 22 vases, 4 vase fragments, 129 terra- 
cottas from Tarentum, 3 Tanagra statuettes, 9 genis, i large 
glass amphora with cover and i small silver handle. Of the 
marbles the most important is the colossal head of a young 
goddess, published in the December Bulletin, a singularly beauti- 
ful example of early fourth-century art, and next to it rank three 
Roman works — a sarcophagus with a relief representing the 1 



REPORT OF THE TRUSTEES 

contest of the Sirens and Muses, in a remarkably fine state of 
preservation, a male portrait bust and a large pilaster front, 
decorated with an elaborate design of scrolls and flowers, almost 
identical with the famous one in the Villa Medici. The clever 
figure of a dead goat will also be of interest to many as an 
example of realism in Roman sculpture. The bronzes are an 
especially interesting lot. They cannot be discussed in detail 
here, but mention must be made of the statuette of a philosopher, 
probably Epicurus, which is certainly one of the most remarkable 
Greek portrait figures, upon a small scale, to be foimd in any 
colleqtion. The vases are all important specimens. Eleven of 
them are notable examples of early types, including eight of the 
"Dipylon" style, the earliest pottery of Athens, in which our 
collection has hitherto been especially weak. The Tarentine 
terracottas were purchased as a collection, and include about 
sixty which are desirable for exhibition, while the others will 
afford useful material for special students of the subject. 

In addition to the accessions of the department it has received 
as a loan from Mr. J. Pierpont Morgan the entire Gr^au Collec- 
tion of ancient glass and glazed objects, consisting of 5,051 pieces 
which are published in Frohner's monumental catalogue of the 
collection. This material, added to the Charvet-Marquand, 
Cesnola, Moore and Murch collections, makes our Museum at 
the present time by far the richest in the world in this branch of 
ancient art — in fact, the combined collection is now so large that 
we lack the space in which to exhibit it all. A room to be de- 
voted wholly to Greek and Roman glass is now being arranged, 
adjoining the Second Vase Room, and here a selection as large 
as it will effectively accommodate will be opened to the public 
within the next few months. 

Besides the classification and preparation of this collection 
for exhibition, a large part of the work of the department during 
the year has consisted in the completion of the rearrangement of 
the Cesnola Collection, under the direction of Prof. John L. 
Myres. When the last Annual Report was made it was hoped 
that this rearrangement would be completed early in the spring, 
but the task proved greater than was then anticipated, and 
various circumstances caused delays, so that it was not until 

27 



ANNUAL REPORT, 1910 

October that the gallery could be reopened in its new fonn with 
the collection systematically classified, effectively displayed and 
completely labeled. We now look forward to the publication oi 
the valuable handbook of it which Professor Myres is writing, 
and which will be a most important contribution to the literature 
of Cypriote art. 

c. Department of Paintings 

The work of rearrangement, of the pictures according to 
schools proceeds satisfactorily. During the year 1910 the fol- 
lowing changes have been accomplished : the Early Northern 
paintir^s have been placed in Gallery 34 ; the Italian and Span- 
ish Primitives in Galleries 33 and 31 ; other Italian pictures in 
Galleries 30 and 29; Spanish pictures in Gallery 28; Flemish 
in Gallery 27, and Dutch in Gallery 26. In addition to these, 
the new Marquand Gallery (No. 11) has been decorated and ar- 
ranged with a selection of important paintings of various schools. 

A loan exhibition of paintings by J. A. McN. Whistler was 
held from March 14 to the end of May in Gallery E 11. 

Among the gifts of paintings are "Six Scenes from the 
Passion" {altar piece), by Jaime Vergos, from the late Mr. 
William M. Laffan; "The Assumption of the Virgin," by Ben- 
venuto di Giovaimi, from Mr. J. Pierpont Morgan; a gift from 
Mr. George A. Heam, which included the following : Landscape, 
Old Crome; "Miss Baring," Sir Thomas LawTence; Land- 
scape, C. G. Lawson; "Mis. Barnard," Sir Joshua Reynolds; 
"Earl of Arundel and Grandson," by Van Dyck; and fourteen 
pictures by American artists, enumerated below, among which 
are such well-known paintings as "Northeaster," Winslow 
Homer; "Quadroon," George Fuller; "Evening, Medfield," 
George Inness; "Forenoon in the Adirondacks," A. H. Wyant, 

We have been enabled through the generosity of the owners 
to exhibit as loans many notable works, among others "Family 
Group," by Frans Hals, from Mr. Otto Kahn; two pictures — 
"Pointe Ste. Adresse" and "L' Aiguille a Etretat"— by Monet, 
and one by Manet, "The Guitarist," owned by Mr. William 
Church Osbom; three pictures from Mr. Archer M. Hunting- 
ton ; "Portrait of Don Pedro Mocarte," by Goya; "Santiago," by 



IL 



REPORT OF THE TRUSTEES 



El Greco, and "A Saint," by Znrbaran; from Mr. Dan Fellows 
Piatt, "Lazarus and the Rich Man," by Bassano; from Mr. 
Theodore M. Davis, a "Madonna and Child," by Pinturicchio ; 
from Mr. George A. Heam, twenty-six pictures by American 
artists. The "Despoilment of Christ," by El Greco, has been 
lent anonymously. 

The year's list of acquisitions by purchase is an extremely 
important one. These include the "Wolf and Fox Hxmt," by 
Rubens; "Mars and Venus Bound by Cupid," by Veronese; "A 
Doge in Prayer," by Tintoretto; and "A Scene in Venice," by 
Canaletto. Among the modem works purchased are: "The 
Funeral," by Manet; "Portrait of a Lady," by Fantin-Latour; 
"Portrait of Sir Henry Irving in the Character of Philip II of 
Spain," by Whistler; and "The Letter," by T. W. Dewing. 

The number of American pictures acquired during the year 
1910 is twenty-four. These, including Mr. Heam's gifts, pre- 
viously mentioned, are :

statue, the others all small works in bronze or marble. From 
their exceptional character the most important of these are per- 
haps the eleven bronzes by Barye, which were purchased with 
income from the Rogers Fund, each one of them being an early 
proof of its subject, cast under the anist's personal supervision 
and of unusual brilliancy. They include such unique pieces as 
the pair of candelabra with their centrepiece (Roger and An- 
gelica), which were made at the order of the Due d'Orleans as a 
wedding gift from him to the Due de Montpensier, From Mr. 
Thomas F. Ryan we have received as a gift three charming 
groups by Rodin, the "Cupid and Psyche," "Orpheus and Eur,-- 
dice" and "Pygmalion and Galatea," the last-named being pre- 
sented as a memorial to our late fellow -trustee, Wilb'am M. 
Laffan. It is a pleasure to announce that, largely through Mr. 
Ryan's generosity, with the cooperation of the sculptor, the rep- 
resentation of Rodin's work in the Museum will soon be ver>' 
substantially increased, Mr. Jacob H. Schiff has given a large 
ideal statue, in bronze, by Jules Butensky, entitled "The Peace 
of the World," which is not yet quite ready for exhibition ; and to 
Mr. Edward Amhold, of Berhn, we are indebted for a reduced 
copyofTuaillon's bronze statue of "A Mounted Amazon," made 
by the sculptor. Other gifts are busts of two former trustees, 
William T. Blodgett and Rutherfurd Stuyvesant by J. Q, A. 
Ward and Denys Puech respectively, the former received from 
Mrs. Ward and the latter from Mrs. Stuyvesant; and a bronze 
figure of a "Dog" by F. G. R. Roth, given by Miss E. M. Clark. 
In addition to the above, the Museum has purchased two small

bronzes by Bouchard and the admirable bust of John La Farge 
by Edith Burroughs. 

Although the changes which have been made in the arrange- 
ment of the Museum's collections during the last few years have 
been on the whole a decided improvement, the rapid growth of 
these collections in other directions has thus far prevented the as- 
signment of a suitable gallery for modem sculpture, but some ad- 
vance has been made this year by the adoption of the corridor at 
the north of the main staircase for this purpose, in which a number 
of selected examples are now exhibited under more favorable con- 
ditions of light and space than most of them formerly had. 

e. The Department of Decorative Arts 

During the past year the rearrangements outlined in the last 
report have been accomplished. The new Wing of Decorative 
Arts was opened to the public on March 14. In the galleries of 
this new addition the exhibits of European sculpture and of the 
decorative arts of Europe and America are arranged chronologi- 
cally. The Italian and Spanish sculptures occupy the south 
end of the central hall ; the north end is given over to the sculp- 
ture of Germany, Netherlands and France. The exhibits are so 
arranged that the visitor turning to the left from the north corri- 
dor and passing through the rooms on the first and second floors 
in the order in which they are numbered may study the develop- 
ment of the decorative arts from the fourth to the nineteenth 
century. On the first floor the corridor of the Romanesque 
period is followed by two rooms of the Gothic period, one of the 
Italian Renaissance and one of the German and French Renais- 
sance. From the south corridor one enters on the east side of 
the building the room containing the exhibits of the northern 
Baroque period, and the first two of a series illustrating French 
art of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. At the end of 
the central hall will be found the Swiss Room from the village of 
Flims. Ascending the staircase one enters the first of five rooms 
containing the French section of the second floor. The collec- 
tion of French ormolu, presented by Mr. Morgan, has been 
placed in the south corridor connecting the side galleries of the 
second floor. On the west side of the building two of the six 

31 



^M rooms c( 



ANNUAL REPORT, IBIO 



rooms contain English furniture; the remaining four American. 
A special number of the Bulletin published in March gives more 
details of the arrangement. 

Eastern art has been separated from that of the West and 
occupies the larger part of the second floor of the Fifth Avenue 
side of the Museum, the remaining space being teinporariI_v 
occupied by European armor. A slight change has been found 
necessary in the arrangement as originally planned ; the Charles 
Stewart Smith Collection has been placed with the other Japan- 
ese exhibits in the galleries adjoining Mr. Morgan's room of 
Chinese porcelains, so that all the Japanese and Chinese collec- 
tions now occupy the intervening space between Mr. Morgan's 
room and the Jade Collection. The art of the Near East occu- 
pies three rooms on the west side of the north end of this^wing. 

The three corresponding galleries on the east side, one of 
which was formerly used for the exhibition of the Charles Stewart 
Smith Collection, now contain a selection from the Museum's 
collection of laces and woven fabrics, rearranged and opened to 
the public in October. The arrangement of the laces and other 
textiles has been planned to show the development of the art 
from the earUest times to the present day. About a third of each 
collection is on exhibition, the remaining specimens being placed 
in the study room in the basement, where they are available to 
students. The textiles are mounted on frames of uniform size 
that may be used as well for exhibition purposes. 

In the field of sculpture special attention has been given to 
the Italian Renaissance. A terracotta relief from the workshop 
of Andrea Verrocchio and a large bronze statuette by Jacopo 
Sansovino may be considered the most important acquisitions of 
the year among the sculptures. Several other bronzes of the 
fifteenth and sixteenth centuries have also been acquired. Men- 
tion in particular may be made of the following : A statuette of 
Lucretia, in the manner of Giovanni da Bologna; a statuette of 
Cleopatra, Sienese, about 1500; two sixteenth-century inkstands, 
one a gift from Mr. Henry Duveen, and two animal bronzes of 
the Paduan School, gifts from Mr. George Blumenthal. Two 
statues by Giovanni da Bologna and a," Youth," by a follower 
of Michael Angelo, were lent by Mr. Philip M. Lydig. Mr. 



REPORT OF THE TRUSTEES 

Grenville L. Winthrop's loan of a number of fine plaquettes con- 
tinues. The small collection of early German sculptures has 
been enlarged by Mr. Morgan's loan of two reliquary busts of 
South German workmanship. A French statuette of St. Cather- 
ine of the fifteenth century has also been lent by Mr. Morgan. 

The illustration of the early periods of European decorative 
arts has been strengthened by Mr. J. Pierpont Morgan's loan of 
a remarkable collection of Merovingian and Germanic orna- 
ments, which will serve as a most important link between the 
Roman and Oriental arts and those of medieval Europe. To the 
examples of the Romanesque period have been added several 
characteristic small bronzes of French and German origin, and 
to the Gothic a few ivory carvings, which with the loan by Mr. 
Theodore M. Davis of a fine collection of about a dozen ivories 
form the nucleus of a growing collection. Perhaps the most 
important example of the Italian decorative arts of the Renais- 
sance that has been acquired is a large bronze mortar from the 
workshop of Jacopo Sansovino. Several other Italian mortars 
have been lent by Mr. Winthrop. A number of remarkable 
majolica plates have been added by Mr. V. Everit Macy to his 
loan collection of Italian ceramic art. A cup from Nuremberg 
designed by Floetner has been added, illustrating the goldsmiths' 
art of the German Renaissance. 

One of the most important loans of the year is the Le Breton 
Collection of French faience of the various manufacturies of 
France in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, especially of 
Rouen, Moutiers and Nevers, which has been received from Mr. 
Morgan. The collection has been placed according to the 
periods represented in the galleries of French decorative arts in 
Wing F. Through the loan of this collection our representation 
of the French ceramic arts is now the equal of the best European 
collections. 

The importance of the English decorative arts in their rela- 
tion to the arts of this country has made it advisable to add to 
our collection of English furniture and other material. To this 
end some remarkable pieces of English furniture of the Gothic, 
Renaissance and eighteenth century periods have recently been 
acquired ; several rare pieces of silver, especially an Irish epergne, 

33 



ANNUAL REPORT, 1910 

of about 1750, by Robert Calderwood, and some specimens of 
Wedgwood that include a fine Homer vase, blue and while 
jasper, and a flower vase, green and while jasper, both acquired 
by purchase, and several pieces of black Wedgwood, the gift of 
Ferdinand Hermann. Other ceramic accessions include thirty- 
seven pieces of Staffordshire, the gift of Mrs. Abraham Lansing, 
of Albany, and a collection of 297 examples of Lowestoft, the 
bequest of Mr, James T. Woodward. The collection of Ameri- 
can decorative arts has been enlai^ed by the purchase of two lots 
of American glass, and by the gift of paneling from a Colonial 
room. Captain and Mrs. William G, Fitch have given in mem- 
ory of their son, Clyde Filch, a collection of Empire furniture and 
other objects, including some wall panels said to have come from 
Malmaison. 

The most important acquisitions by purchase in the depart- 
ment of textiles are some sixteenth-century Itahan garments of 
embroidered linen, and a set of church vestments of Venetian 
needlepoint lace. Among the important gifts of laces may be 
mentioned two superb flounces of Venetian needlepoint, together 
with some smaller pieces, given in memory of Mrs. William H. 
Herriman, and a bequest of 124 examples of rare varieties from 
Mrs. Henrietta Seligman. Other gifts and loans of laces have 
been received from a number of ladies. There have also been 
several important loans of Flemish and Mortlake tapestries of 
the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries by Messrs. PhiUp Hiss, 
Alfred W. Hoyt and Leonard M.Thomas. 

Mrs, John Crosby Brown has added fourteen specimens to 
her collection of musical instruments. 

Eight new cases have been placed by Mr, Morgan in the 
room containing his collection of Chinese porcelains, for a part 
of the Marsden Perry Collection and certain other important 
acquisitions. The new objects are arranged in the middle line 
of cases, the first being devoted to the brilliant turquoise, deep 
lapis and glowing squashed-grapc purple figures and vases of the 
Ming earthenware. In the two following cases are examples of 
famille rose, egg-shell and blue and white, while surrounding the 
archaic-looking blue, white and rouge dc fer vase of the Ming 
period seen in the fourth case are several splendid 



a 01 ine lumg ■

vases of the famille verte. A vase decorated with figures of the 
Arhats in high relief is especially remarkable. Beyond are cases 
filled with vases and beakers of the finest white texture and deco- 
rated in brilliant overglaze enamel, black hawthorn pattern, 
etc., the end case being filled with examples of all monochrome 
glazes, including sixteen new examples of peach bloom and two 
fine vases of glowing sang-de-boeuf . 

The Museum has increased its collection by the purchase of 
some Chinese bronzes and glazed ware attributed to the Han 
period. A large Chinese screen of the Khan'g Hsi period lent 
by Mrs. Benjamin Thaw makes an admirable companion piece 
to the one given by Mr. Morgan the year before. The lack of 
Japanese ivory carvings has been met by a collection of 2,486 
netsukes, presented by Mrs. Russell Sage. 

A special loan exhibition of Oriental rugs from the fifteenth to 
the eighteenth centuries was opened November i and continued 
until January 15, 1911. This exhibition, made possible by the 
generous contributions of several private collectors, was a revela- 
tion of the wealth of American collections in this field of art. In 
all fifty examples of Persian, Turkish and Indian work were in- 
cluded in the exhibition; an illustrated catalogue was published. 
The Museum purchased at the Yerkes Sale three of the finest 
Persian rugs of the sixteenth century, including one from the 
Ardebil Mosque and another with the so-called Ming coat-of- 
arms. Another important purchase was an early and imusually 
large Polish silk rug. Previous to this year the textile arts of the 
Near East have been inadequately represented in the Museum. 
This has now been very largely remedied by recent purchases 
and especially by the loan from Mr. C. F. Williams of the greater 
part of his important collection of Oriental rugs, in which remark- 
able specimens illustrate in a systematic way the development of 
the art. 

A number of pieces of Rakka pottery have been lent by Mrs. 
Benjamin Thaw, and several important gifts of Persian faience 
of the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries have been made by 
Mr. Otto Kahn, Mr. George Blumenthal, and others. A Koran 
stand of the thirteenth century has been purchased to illustrate 
the early wood carvings of the East, as well as some Indian 

35

architectural carvings of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. 

The collection of silver shown during the Hudson-Fulton 
Celebration, belonging to Mr. George S. Palmer, and consisting 
of 74 pieces, remains on exhibition, as well as those of Hon. A. T. 
Clearwater and Dr. Lewis Morris. 

Additions to th^ reproductions given by the late Heoiy G. 
Marquand are the large cast of a Saracenic, thirteenth-centuiy 
door plating, formerly in the Mosque of Beybars I, and now in 
the Victoria and Albert Museum, and a bronze bust of 
Henry VII, from the statue in Westminster Abbey, modeled by 
the sculptor Torrigiano. Copies have also been added of a 
silver-gilt tea set made for Christian VI of Denmark 'at Augs- 
burg; a silver "Jamnitzer" cup and three salvers,'^while a 
repouse^ tankard with a cover having a medal of Gustavus 
Adolphus inserted in the center represents the work of Sweden 
during the seventeenth century. 

We obtained by purchase a remarkable collection of Sheffield 
plate, gathered by the Viscountess Wobeley. By the gift of 
John Stemme we have firebacks of the sixteenth, seventeenth and 
eighteenth centuries, and other wares. 

Collection of American Aet 
Nineteen pictures by American artists and four sculptures by 
American sculptors have been acquired during the year, and 
some additions have been made to our already large collections of 
American furniture and household art. 

The tentative lists of some of the best-known American 
painters and sculptors, who either are not at all or not adequately 
represented in our collections, have been corrected to date and 
are included in an appendix to this report as an urgent reminder 
to any of our members who can aid us in obtaining some of these 
artists' representative works. 

Extensions to the Mdseum 

The opening on March 15th of the central northerly wing 

consisting of a lofty hall and twenty-four rooms surrounding 

it, on two floors, has already been mentioned. The new 

Library extension, in which our collections of books and phoK)- 



>^

REPORT OF THE TRUSTEES 

graphs have been mstalled, was opened to the public in July. 

The new wing known as Addition H — an extension to the 
present northerly Fifth Avenue wing, which will complete the 
east facade toward the north— has been carried up to the level of 
the first floor. The present contract awarded by the City in- 
cludes only the exterior of the building. It is expected that a 
contract for the interior finish will be awarded some time during 
the coming summer. 

Contracts have been awarded by the City for the lighting 
fixtures of Addition F, the central wing to the north, in which our 
collection of decorative arts is installed, and for replacing the 
lighting fixtures in the old portions of the Museum with new fix- 
tures of modem design, equipped with Tungsten lamps. 

Publications 

Our publications have increased in number and importance, 
the total of them being 53. The Bulletin, with its December 
number, completed its fifth year. The special exhibitions of 
Oriental rugs and of the works of Whistler were accompanied 
with catalogues of the collections; the catalogue of casts has 
been issued in a second edition, and a special number or sup- 
plement to the Bulletin containing an accoimt of the new wing 
of European Decorative Arts was published at the time of the 
opening of this section of the building. There are now in press 
or shortly to be published catalogues of the collections of 
ceramics, textiles, paintings, and Greek bronzes. The promised 
catalogue de luxe of the Dutch paintings contained in the 
Hudson-Fulton Exhibition, with photogravure illustrations, has 
been published, and the initial expense borne by two of our 
Trustees. The subscription price is $50. 

Mention has been made in previous reports of the work of the 
Photograph Department of the Museum, which, besides supply- 
ing the necessary photographs used for records, prepares photo- 
graphs and post cards of all the objects in the collections for sale 
at low prices for use by students, artists and artisans. This part 
of the Museum's activities is of real educational importance, and 
it deserves to be recorded that the opportunity to acquire photo- 
graphs has been embraced to a greater extent than ever before.

Direct Edocational Work 

The results of the work with school children and teachers as 
shown in the tables of attendance are gratifying, more especially 
as they indicate spontaneous interest on their part, since no 
requirements, such as hold in connection with the science mu- 
seums, are put upon the schoob by the Board of Education. 
It is hoped that later on the Board of Education may avail 
themselves of the offer ertended by the Trustees of cooperation 
between the Museum and teachers, particularly teachers of 
drawing, and that a closer alliance may be effected ; such, indeed, 
as has been arranged in many other cities. 

The services of the Instructor have been sought by members, ■ 
visitors and teachers to the full extent of her time. The number 
of appoinlmcnls made was 288, the number of persons included 
being 3,019. Of this latter number 2,673 "^"^ teachers and their 
pupib, and 346 were members and other visitors. The class 
room, with its equipment of stercopticon lantern, photographs, 
etc., has been extensively used by teachers and classes, as well 
as by various educational bodies. The number of copyists work- 
ing in the Museum has been 1,234, with an average daily attend- 
ance of 33. 

The Library 

The total number of volumes in the Library on December 31 
was 20,189, and of photographs 29,846. Of these, 1,795 ^''*'" 
umcs were added during the year, 12 1 as gifts ; 2,557 photographs 
were added. 

The Library was transferred to its new home in July and the 
attendance of readers and of visitors to the Department of 
Photographs has since shown, as was anticipated, a constant 
and rapid increase. The number of readers this year, outside 
of the staff of the Museum, has been 4,518, as compared with 
3,950 in 1909, and 543 persons have availed themselves of our 
collection of photographs, as compared with 69 during the pre- 
vious year. 

The need of catalogues of many of the small European 
museums and collections has in a large measure been supplied 
by the addition during the past year of 250 volumes. Complete 



REPORT OF THE TRUSTEES 

sets of catalogues of all museums and galleries both in Europe 
and America are being obtained as rapidly as possible. 

Among the additions to the collection of photographs are a 
large number of very beautiful examples of Colonial architecture 
in New England. 

Special Exhibitions 

The policy of the Trustees respecting special exhibitions is to 
confine them, as a rule, to one subject, in a comparatively narrow 
field, but to have them ultimately cover the entire range of art 
which is represented in the collections of the Museum, strength- 
ening these for the time by examples borrowed from other collec- 
tions, chiefly those of private owners, which are not usually 
accessible to the public. The hearty and generous response 
with which our efforts in this direction have already been met by 
such collectors encourages us to look forward to a great increase 
in the educational work which the Museum will be enabled to 
perform with their assistance, both by stimulating a general in- 
terest in the various forms of art, or the works of individual 
artists, which will thus be displayed, and by offering to the public 
an exceptionally high standard for the cultivation of its taste in 
the arts that will be included. 

Following this policy a collection of paintings by James 
Abbott McNeill Whistler was opened on March 14 in our special 
exhibition gallery, which remained on view until the end of May. 
The excellent manner in which this distinguished American 
painter was represented attracted a large number of visitors and 
much favorable comment. The exhibition embraced 46 pictures 
in oil and pastels. The list of contributors was as follows : 

Boston Museum of Fine Arts John G. Johnson 

National Gallery of Art, Wash- Howard Mansfield 

ington, D.C. (Freer Collection) Miss Rosalind Bemie Philip 

Brooklyn Institute of Arts and Alfred Atmore Pope 

Sciences Herbert L. Pratt

Richard Canfield John H. Wittemore 
Frank J. Hecker 

39 



ANNUAL REPORT, 1910 

A second special exhibition, opened in the same gallery on 
November i, consisted of rare early Oriental rugs. The cata- 
logue of this exhibitioHj prepared by Dr. Wilhelm R, Valentiner, 
our Curator of Decorative Arts, forms an admirable text book on 
this important branch of art. 

The special exhibition of European Arms and Armor, col- 
lected by the indefatigable industry of our Curator of arms and ] 
armor, Bashford Dean, as well as our special exhibition of the 
works of the late lamented Winslow Homer, will be opened on 
the day when this report is to be presented. They should prop- 
erly be chronicled in the report for 191 1, but brief notice of them 
here is not inappropriate. For the exhibition of arms and armor 
collectors throughout the country have given generous support. 
About 200 objects will be shown. Of these there will be 30 
harnesses, including five equestrian. The walls will be hung 
with Gothic tapestries, and a collection of banners of the six- 
teenth to nineteenth centuries will be shown. This is the fiist 
exhibition of its kind in America. 

Conclusion 

The rapid and almost bewildering increase in our collections, 
so largely by gift as well as the generous legacies of money which 
the Museum has recently received, make it perfectly plain that 
private generosity can be relied upon to do its part in making 
our Museum great. 

Whether the same reliance can be placed upon the City is not 
so apparent. The fundamental principle of cooperation be- 
tween the City and its great public institutions, the Museum of 
Art, the Museum of Natural History, the Public Library, the 
Brooklyn Institute, the Zoological and Botanical Gardens, is 
that the City shall provide necessary land and buildings, as well 
as the principal part of the cost of administration, while the 
institutions shall themselves provide the collections, pay a small 
part of the cost of exhibiting them, and undertake the responsi- 
bility of management. 

This is an American departure from European precedents. 



REPORT OF THE TRUSTEES 

In Europe all the expenditures, including the entire cost of 
administration and the collections themselves, are met from 
governmental sources, and the government, be it state or 
municipality, assumes the entire responsibility of management. 

The New York system has manifest advantages to the public. 
The people in every practical sense of use, whether for education 
or enjoyment, own the art treasures of our Museum as com- 
pletely as do the people of Paris own those of the Louvre. They 
own them, moreover, without ever paying for them a single 
dollar out of the public treasury and without meeting even the 
entire cost of exhibition. Moreover, they secure for the man- 
agement of their Museum, free of all expense, the services of a 
body of trustees who could command almost any compensation 
for like services in a business enterprise. This New York 
system of quasi partnership between the City and its great public 
institutions has amply justified itself. Not only has so large a 
part of the cost which in Europe falls entirely on the public been 
met from private sources, but under its stimulus to private efifort 
these institutions have grown more rapidly than any of their 
European prototypes. 

Our own Museum's contribution during the past year toward 
its side of the "partnership enterprise," quite aside from specific 
gifts, foots up to more than $300,000 for the purchase of objects 
of art, and more than $100,000 toward administration expenses. 
The City's contribution toward like expenses was $200,000, as 
large a sum as it has ever given, but a smaller proportion of the 
total than has been provided by it in any recent year. 

City appropriations are as yet insuflScient to contract for com- 
pletion of the new wing now under way, or for a new boiler house 
imperatively needed. This is not said complainingly. There 
never has been any lack of sympathetic support from our 
Mayors, Comptrollers, and Park Commissioners, who are 
ex-oSicio members of our Board. There never has been any 
more cordial and s)rmpathetic relation with these City officers 
than exists with those who now hold office. The City's good-will 
in these directions has limitations in the many calls for mimicipal 

41 



ANNUAL REPORT, 1910 

expenditure in other directions. It is simply stating a fact, how- 
ever, to say that the only limit to the rapid growth of the Metro- 
politan Museum into one of the greatest art museums of the 
world lies on the side of the City of New York.

MEMORIAL RESOLUTION 

AT THE meeting of the Board of Trustees, held February 
--^11 21, 1910, the following resolution was adopted : 

in memoriam 

Dasius Ogden Mills 

trustee, 1882-i9io 

FIRST VICE-PRESIDENT, I906-I9IO 

The Trustees of The Metropolitan Museum of Art have 
heard with profoimd sorrow of the death of Darius Ogden Mills, 
at his home in California in January. 

Our close association with him as a member of the Board 
• from 1882 until his death — a consecutive period of twenty-eight 
years — had not only commanded our highest respect and con- 
fidence, but had warmly attached to him all his associates, and 
we desire to put on record our high appreciation of his character, 
and of his valuable services to the Museum. These services 
were of the most varied description, and embraced, first and last, 
nearly all the activities of the Board of Trustees. He was Vice- 
President of the Museum from 1906 to 19 10 and a member of the 
Executive Committee throughout the entire period of his con- 
nection with the Board, during which, at different times and for 
varying periods, he served on the Committees on Finance, Pur- 
chases, Paintings, Sculpture, Art Schools, Supplies, Nomina- 
tions, Loan Exhibitions, Museum Lighting, and on the Com- 
mittee appointed to write to the King of England regarding his 
gift of books. On all these committees and in his entire relation 
to the Museum there was nothing perfunctory about his services, 
but he realized his responsibilities and gave to the affairs of the 
institution close and constant attention; and his natural sagacity, 

43 



ANNUAL REPORT, 1910 

his vast experience, and his thoroughly trained methods of busi- 
ness gave practical value to his advice and his action. 

His devotion to the interests of the Museum was constant 
and untiring; he was a frequent contributor to its work, and the 
generous legacy to the Museum contained in his will was but a 
continuance of the valuable gifts of his lifetime. 

His personal character was uniquely pure and noble, and he 
was a rare instance in America of a man of immense wealth and 
great enterprises constantly increasing his vast possessions upon 
whom no breath of malicious suspicion or criticism ever rested. 
His charities were on a large scale; but what was better even than 
charity was his constant desire and active endeavor to help the 
helpless to help themselves, as was shown by his successful ex- 
periment in constructing homes for homeless men in which, 
without any loss of self respect, they could for the most modest 
daily payment be well provided for by night and by day, and 
find not only the necessities, but many of the comforts of life. 
Without any special advantages of early training and culture, 
his dignified and manly bearing, his absolute and universal 
courtesy and good advice, his grace of manner and unafifected 
kindness to every one with whom he came in contact marked 
him as one of nature's noblemen. 

And thus he bore without abuse 

The grand old name of gentleman, 

Defamed by every charlatan 
And soiled with all ignoble use.

DESIDERATA 
AMERICAN PAINTINGS 

AND 

SCULPTURE 



DESIDERATA 
AMERICAN PAINTINGS AND SCULPTURE 

The following list is reprinted from the Annual Report for 1905 and 
1906, with changes made necessary by recent additions. It was prepared by 
Mr. George H. Story in consultation with the following Trustees: Frederick 
Dielman, then President of the National Academy of Design, Daniel 
Chester French, and Robert W. de Forest, Secretary. 

It contains the names of some of the best-known deceased American 
artists who either are not at all or are not adequately represented in the 
Museum collections. It is believed that the Museum should have in its gal- 
leries at least one or two distinctly characteristic pictures of those artists who 
represent historically the development of American painting. There are 
included in the list those artists who are now represented, it may be, by 
several pictures, but of whom the Museum would be glad to have one or 
more works which may be distinctly classed as masterpieces. What the 
Museum desires is quality rather than quantity. This list is tentative and 
not inclusive. The more important names are indicated with an asterisk :
