Under wme drcumstoiocei it migUt h*v« been proump- 
tuouf in the Toronto '^Oub to open iU roonw for the 
purpose of «n exhibition of louied pictures, although the 
mere departure from the ordinary functions of • dub needs 
no excuse. One of the lewling clubs of the world possesses 
A beautiful gallery used only for pcriddical exhibitions of 
this kind. It is the fact that Toronto has no public gallery 
devoted to similar high aims which has prompted the 
members of the Toronto Club to aflbrd such accommoda- 
tion as their rooms will permit to the pictures referred to 
in the annexed catalogue, and they do this with the distinct 
ho(>e that 1 oronto, with its intelligence and wealth, will not 
long suffer the reproach of not possessing a public ait 
gallery. If we consider whit the generosity Of one liberal 
citizen in each of sew^pf the'imaller dties of the United 
States has done for fpp those communiiies, and if we take 
the trouble «4ien we Vttit Montreal to enter and admire the 
beautiful gallery they possess, surely it" will not be' long 
before the broad-minded liberality of some dtizen of 
Toronto will cause the reproach to pass away from us. 
' In all periods of gmt intellectual and material advance- 
ment, the rich have bcn^t the works of great artists for 
thdr personal enjoyment, only to find that they have 
blessed the whole community by the possession of objects 
which all who hlive intelligence and are allowed to see may 
enjoy as much as the owner. The young people of the 
present generation in Montreal, who are allowed from time 
to time to see the treasures now owned by its wealthy 
citixens, have at the moment an inestimaUe adyaatpge 


■• €. 




over the young people of roronto in the vastly Utger 
poMibilitiM of their art education. And this ii not merdf 
true regarding the general cultivation and power to 
appreciate good art of thorc who do not learn it tech- 
nically, but it it even more true of the art student whose 
highest aim is to design a conventional wall decoration, 
•nd who shall estimate its effect, in technical skill or 
cultivation of mind^ upon the student who hopes some day 
to paint a masterpiece. We can but hope that the superior 
advantages possessed by th« young people of Montreal will 
•oon be equally enjoyed in Toronto. 

-*— in.!! ;_ _i i . . 

Thu is an age when much is effected in eduoUlon by 
object lessons. Matthew Arnold says : "There can be no 
more useful help for discovering what poetry belongs to the 
class of th^ truly excellent, and can therefore do us most 
good, than to bare always in one's mind lines and expres- 
sions of the great mastiirs, and apply them as a touchstone 
to other poetry." There are no object lessons comparable 
to pictures. There are no touchstones of taste, so neces- 
sary as the pictures of undoubted masters. The young will 
leam with rapidity with such examples atound them, and 
even the Canadian painter whb has esUbliibM his reputa- 
tion will paint the better and rejoice in the opportunity to 
feast his eyes and reinvigorate his brain on what the in- 
dividuality and imagination of other men's brains have 

The pictures in the present exhibition have been design- 
edly selected from various schools and periods. The pur- 
pose of art should be to create catholicity of taste, not 
4ttvoti0n to a particular cult Unless the processes of 
•ducation are arrested, they will in the end make us less 
concerned as to whether a particular picture has impression- 
istic or realistic, naturalistic or academic, tendencies, 
w^ethe^ it is bj^ an eariy, or an old, or a modem 

• I

uiMter, so long m from any of the many pofhti of view 
open to the individuality of the artist it is a worthy con- 
ception of his subject Nor should ire allow our perMnal 
biai regarding the subject of a picture to influence our 
appreciation of it, provided it is the earnest effort of aA 
serious artist. 

^ It is unfortunate that many men and women believe 
they have no capacity fix the enjoyment of pictures, and 
therefore they look upon the expenditure of considerable 
sums for works by great arUsts as practically a waste of 
money. But this is in the majority of cases quite untrue. ^ 
It does not require the exercise of unusual taste and judg- 
ment to realize the merits of great works of art, whether 
they take the form of the drama, or music, or painting, 

What is necessary to the enjoymeiit of great^pictures by one 
who has not made art a study is merely the possession of 
them. Once hung upon his walls the quality' of a .fin« 
picture will soon make itself felt, and the 'thing of beauty" 
will literally become "a joy forever.'* 

In preparing the notes on painters, free use has been 
made of the various dictionaries and handbooks of art, 
without any attempt to indicate the precise soun:efl of in- 
formation. M^y of the notices are copied directly from 
the Montreal 6italogue of 1893, and from other catalogues.

The pia^ical aide of hb diaractcr enabled him to eacape

txperiaMnt. wMdi renlted in hia early acceptance aa a 
piOnter of landaeape and animala of the lint rank. Ilia 
aarlicat tsUfatta were of ctehinga and engravings and 
thoof^ he began to paint in 184S. w>d waa uMdalled for 
engraving in the Salona of 1851, 1861, and 1863. tt waa 
not nntil 1861 that he received ofidal recognition aa m 
painter. In 1867 he rcedved the Le|^ of Honoor. 
Jaeqne ia,by choice, a painter of nutic Ufe, with a predia- 
poaition to die hambler animal ride of it. Hia hobby 
for a long time waa poultry. The pig found kIw iu ihare 
of fevour at hia br<kah/ bat Us moat rq>reienUtive and 
charaeteristie pictures arc those in which sheep play a 
prominent part. {lis early trainfaig renders him a firm and 
l^iedse dmughtsman, and his handling of^oor is broad, 
decisive, and powerfuL While extremely carefol and 
accurate in detail, he never descends to over-eUboration, 
and his command of textures in the delinealion of animals 
is supreme. It has been hia good fortune to enjoy a high 
degree of deserved popularity, and so great was the 
demand for his pictures that for a nuniber of years he did 
not appear as an exhibitor at the Salon, which may 
doubtless account for his not having secured a longer lirt 
of honours. Apart from his painting. Jaeque has earned 
an eternal owed of gratitude by hb service in the rerival 
of the art of etching, and examfdes of his plates are now 
treasured rarities ta the portfolios of collectors. .

1769>— 183a 

Dora «t Brbtol. 1769; died in London,^^ iSjo. IVwtndt 
painter, sod of a Bristol innkeeper wi& had kliowB 
better days. At tlie age of ten he tooft crayon portraiti 
at OKford, and copied historical pictures, and before 
/he «a< twelve he had drawn Mrs. Siddona' in en^vos, 
|md nmde his studio af Bath a fiuhiooable nwit. 
He began to paint in oib in hk seventeenth year, and 
succeeded so well, in his own opinion, that he dcdaied 
hinueir ready to stake bis reputation against that of any 
painter in EngUnd. When, however, he first exhibited in 
London (1787) his vanity received a salutary check, and, 
fwliog the necessity of study, he entered the RiTal 
Academy. The very next year he $d)ieved a success with 
his portrait of Miss Farren, the actress, afterwards Counten 
of Derl^, and followied it up with portraits of the Queen 
and the Princeu Amelia. In 1791, through the influence 
of George III., with whom he was a Rteat bvonrite, 
Uwrence was admitted to the ^oyal Academy as sapple- 
mentary A.RJL, although under the required age, and the 
next year he became painter-in-ordinary to His Majesty. 
In 1794 he was elected R.A. At the height of bis 
reputation he received one hundred guinett fdr a head, 
and four hundred for a fuU-length portrait At this rate 
per portrait, and with /^ a year to di«w upon for 
travelling expen^ws. Sir Thomas was sent to the Continent 
by George IV., soon after the &II of Napoleon, to paint 
the allied sovereigns, «b - ^-Asmblcd at Aix-k-ChapeUe ; 
Rome to paint Pius VII. and Cardinal Goosalvi (1819), 
two of his finest works, and to Vienna to paint Prince 
Sch wartsenberg and ether Austrian genenls. He had been 
knighted>y the king in 1815, and five years later, after his 
return to England, he was elected president cf the Royal 
Academy. He was a member of the Academy of St. Lqke, 
Rome, and of many other foreign academies, and in 1835 
. wis made a chevalier of the L?gion of Honour.
