This department of the museum is one of the largest in number of holdings, but, by its nature, is the most difficult to present. For one thing the function of deco- rative arts collections has changed: they may once have served as inspiration for designers, but for the most part they no longer are used as models for copying. In our case, because the sculpture of the Lucy Maud Bucking- ham Collection has always been associated with the decorative objects of that collection, sculpture has been included in the displays when, strictly speaking, it does not belong to the arts of decoration. </p><p>We approached the reinstallation of the decorative arts from the point of view of showing the material logically, and as attractively as possible. Accordingly, the space around McKinlock Court is devoted to English mate- rial, with English ceramics shown in the gallery on the north side of the court, English silver and wrought-iron work in Hutchinson Gallery, and English furniture on the south side of the court and in the galleries imme- diately to the south. Continental material begins with the medieval objects from the Buckingham Collection and others, installed just to the south of Hutchinson Gal- lery, and is continued in a chronological sequence through the Robert Allerton Wing. American decorative arts, with which are shown our earlier American paint- ings, and our small group of Louis Sullivan material, are mounted in the eastern end of Gunsaulus Hall. </p><p>We have sought to show as much of the permanent col- lection as we comfortably can. Further, we have been able to show once more the French eighteenth century room, known as the Dangler Memorial Room, the En- glish Georgian Room given by Robert Allerton, and, for the first time, the mid-eighteenth century panelled room from the house known as Stagg Hall from Port Tobacco, Charles County, Maryland. Mrs. Potter Palmer and Mr. Allerton gave this room in 1930, but, save for its corner cupboard, the room had never been on view. While the Thorne Miniature Rooms free us, happily, from any necessity of assembling a major collection of period rooms, we have sought to show the few we own in as accurate and, at the same time, as attractive a guise as possible. The same motivation lies behind the other installations: clarity, honesty of presentation, and charm. J.

The BULLETIN will be mailed to all Members of the Art Institute five times a year: January 1, March 1, May 1, September I, and November 1. On May 1, the Art Institute will issue the first of a series of scholarly annuals dealing with works of art in the collection, to be called MUSEUM STUDIES. The BULLETIN will keep Members informed about all lectures, exhibitions, theatre series, and all other activities of the Institute, and is edited by Frederick A. Sweet. </p><p>Exhibitions </p><p>EDWARD HOPPER </p><p>through January 31 </p><p>PIERRE BONNARD </p><p>January 8 through Feb. 28 </p><p>MAX BECKMANN </p><p>March 12 through April 11 </p><p>EIGHTEENTH CENTURY </p><p>EUROPEAN PORCELAINS </p><p>LENT BY </p><p>MRS.
