MORE MODERN BRONZES The Garden Court is to be enriched during the winter by two important bronzes, the work of American sculptors, which have recently been completed for the Italian Gardens now under construction forMr. and Mrs. Francis E. Drury opposite their Euclid Avenue residence. "The Spirit of the Garden" is a life-size standing figure of a nude girl with hand upraised to invoke the blessing of the installed, water rain upon the garden. When permanently will run from her outstretched hand. This fine figure is the work of Chester Beach, who, it will be remembered, is repre sented in the permanent collection by the marble group "Dawn" installed inGallery VIII. "The Mermaid Fountain" by Robert Aitken represents a playful bronze figure of a demure, if coquettish, mermaid, seated on a dolphin's back and holding in each hand a sea-horse, from the mouths of which water will flow. This fanciful and charm ing composition adds a new interest to the fountain pool, from the edge of which it is to look down, for the next few months, upon the water and goldfish below. Mr. Drury has presented to theMuseum a bronze of a small preliminary model for a .figure of a boy fishing, by F. Landi. It is simple and delightful in its frankness and in the expression of boyish joy in the bent-pin period of an angler's life. 14
