Largely the Result of f Their Methods of
- Teaching Drawing:, f
: The queston is often asked "Where do
the Japanese get the' ideas from which to
produce the weird ' and ;- fantastic designs
bo often seen in their work?" Numerous
efforts have been made to answer this
question, and the' Japanese have heen al
ternately lauded . for, the beauty of their
Work and condemned for its crudeness.
It would appear that the system by which
the Japanese are , taught designing is
largely responsible .for the .character of
their work There is no race of people on
the face of the earth, with the possible ex
ception of the Chinese,) who are more
painstaking or skillful in the work which
The Japanese student who. is taught
drawing is given a small book in which
are designs printed in small squares, and
these he reproduces square by square un
til he has grasped the salient features of
each. He is then sent out into the open
country and told to observe the works of
nature spread out before him in all their
luxuriance. .pyip'kdyr r-- i..-.?
Finding some suitable object, for his at
tention, he : proceeds to reproduce' the
same, introducing perhaps some imagina
tive details. It is right hers that the sys
tem of squares comes in. Those elegant
stems, those feathery petals which are ap
parently thrown together, without re
straint, are simply the particular feature
of the mass of vegetation .which he has se
lected for this individual study. His long
course of study in this line has given him
the faculty of following a single vine
through tangled underbrush and ignoring
all the rest of the growth, .The tortuous

The wonderful facility of the Japanese
in the production of works of art, in the
execution, the beauty of colorings and the
delicacy of their drawings, is well known.
While artists claim the designs of the Jap
anese, if critically examined, will be found
incorrect in form, proportion and con
struction, these same critics freely concede
that in the failings mentioned are found
the very highest merits of the Japanese as
Decorative art does not admit of abso
lute fidelity to nature. Slavish copyists
lack imagination, without which they can
never be true decorative artists. The very
science of the art is the power to conven
tionalize nature while preserving the spirit
and following all the objects represented,
and this fa where the Japanese excel, as,
gifted with a wonderful quickness of per
ception and delicacy of hand, they seize
upon and reproduce with extraordinary
rapidity and power of touch the character

Some Hints on House Furnishing.
The Art Amateur contains some hints
on decorating a house that would prove
very useful . if people would only appre
ciate and employ them. For instance, we
are told no one should color his walls till
he has some, notion of the pictures he is
going to put on them. What the pictures
are is a guide to the color scheme. In all
the schemes set forth the floor is the key
note, and the color scheme lightens as it
proceeds toward the ceiling, which, is al
ways the lightest tone. Kot that the same
color is necessarily employed .throughout,
but that there is a harmonious color tone
underlying the whole composition. For
instance, a floor painted or stained, dark
brown is complemented by woodwork of
natural oak ; or, if this is not available,
it is painted a warm light brown. The
walls up to the frieze are a soft, warm
terra cotta terra cotta because this shade
of red has a tinge of yellow in it and the
frieze and ceiling are a deep cream tint
cream, not lemon yellow. On this fig
ures in a deeper yellow or gold are effect
ive. Pale brown and yellow without the ter
ra cotta is also an attractive color scheme.
Hang the walls with palo brownish pa
per, powdered with small gold figures.
The ceiling is cream, stenciled in a yellow
ish brown. To prevent monotony a dull
pale blue may be used in rug and por
tieres. . The Art Amateur gives advice that has
several times been offered in these columns,
advising the purchase of a few good arti
cles of furniture rather than the buying of
more pieces that are cheap: "The greater
part of the expense usually incurred in
furnishing is in buying cheap things which
are bound to be useless or inappropriate
and which have to be superseded by oth
ers, so that a room is often furnished sev
eral times over at a cost that would much
more than cover the price of a sufficiency
of well built . and handsome and service
able furniture of solid material and excel
lent workmanship. There is much in
making a good start with a simple, well
understood scheme that will bear a few
additions from time to time without caus
ing the discarding of the things first
