THE University Museum has received from the Museum of Modern Art in New York a copy of African Negro Art, the catalogue of their current exhibition of African art, and wishes to express its admiration of the results of the efforts of James Johnson Sweeney. As director of the exhibition he was responsible for the collection of six hundred fascinating specimens; as editor he has written a catalogue which is at once an agreeable text-book.

The exhibition is so representative of the outstanding examples in the world’s collections that it is a satisfaction to the University Museum to have had four pieces selected for inclusion.
