Painting in Public

Maurice Grosser
A SPRIGHTLY, caustic, and enlightening little book for the layman by a professional painter. The author discourses chattily on the chemistry of paint and the subject matter of painting; beauty and the painter’s eye; picture values and picture frames; the nude in art; fashions in art and modern art; art rackets and art museums. Mr. Grosser, who would he considered conservative by the vanguard, dusts off many of the cobwebs of controversy without philistinism.
