RECENT LITERATURE ON ART AND 
ART EDUCATION 



WALTER SARGENT 

University of Chicago 



The literature of art and art education during 191 8 has been meager, 
largely on account of the war. The Eastern Arts Association held its annual 
meeting, but its bulletin has not yet been published. The Western Drawing 
and Manual Training Association omitted its annual meeting and therefore 
has no bulletin for the year. 
The Bulletin (No. 4) of the College Art Association of America. Published 

by the Association. May be ordered from John Shapley, Secretary, 

Brown University, Providence, Rhode Island. 

This bulletin is more comprehensive than any of the previous numbers 
and contains the following articles: 

" The Value of the Study of Art to Students in Colleges and Universities, " 
by Henry Turner Bailey, dean of the Cleveland School of Art. 

"Technical and General Education in the Arts," by E. Raymond 
Bossange, Carnegie Institute, Pittsburgh. 

"Robbery and Restitution of Works of Art in the Present War," by 
Alfred M. Brooks, Indiana State University. 

"Standardization of Art Courses," by Alice V. V. Brown, Wellesley 
College. 

"The Value of Art in a College Course," by Samuel P. Capen, Bureau 
of Education. 

"Research Work and Graduate Teaching in Art," by Alfred Vance 
Churchill, Smith College. 

"The Place of the Fine Arts in Higher Education," by Ralph Adam 
Crane, architect, Boston.

tion," by John Cotton Dana, Newark, New Jersey, Public Library.

These articles are given in brief, but reflect the points of view of various 
American colleges on art education. 

The monthly and bimonthly bulletins of the various art museums have 
contained, as usual, descriptions of new accessions, and considerable historical 
material. In addition they have published a large number of articles dealing 
with the special need of industrial art education because of the reconstruction 
of industries which will follow the war. Several of the museums have formu- 
lated plans for making their collections available for use in connection with 
the teaching of industrial design. The bulletins of practically all the large 
museums during the past two years have contained important educational 
material. Prominent among these bulletins are those of the following insti-
