As youth in the Academy, Boeklin
waa noted for hie wonderful memory.
When the students were given a bit of
landscape to sketch he would lean com
fortably against a tree apparently en
grossed with the panorama before him
bat not doing a stroke of work. Later in
the day when he returned to his room
his brashes flew over the canvas anc he
soon showed his fellow students how
deeply the scene was impressed upon his
naiad. Each tree seemed to be repro
duced with a correctness of line that
could scarely -be credited by his fellow
workers when they saw it the following
day. This did well enough for the limbs
of trees bat when it came to the human
body hard study from life was necesscry
to reach perfection and Boeklin's draw
ing k far from faultless. Some say he
lacked the money for study in his youth.
Others that the jealousy of his wife
would allow no model in his studio. Be

this theme his portrait of himself is more
in demand than any other. The artist
is standing playing on the one string
left on his violin while back of him
looking over bis shoulder is a skeleton.
The picture seems prophetic of the life
of the man. Boeklin is now para'yzed
but works on for a few hours each day
with the one hand that can hold a brush
while be says he knows death waits back
of his chair.
Perhaps a little gossip as to Boeklin's
life romance as it is retailed at the Ber

was wandering in Italy and stopped for

"The Play of the Waves," a picture
which hangs in the new Pinakothek of
Munich, k abhorred by some people be
cause of the hideous figures which sport
through the cold blue water but yet
there is a charm about it like one'of An
dersen's fairy stories and everyone feels
it in time.
Boeklin was born at Bazii and in his
religious paintings can be traced the in
fluence of the early German masters
whose work he studied in his youth. In
these be has simplified his coloring and
has depicted in a realistic manner the
drawn, agonized faces around the Christ.
A thing which modern artists have not
The "Dance of Death," which figured
in all literature and and art of Holbein's
time, has also been a favorite subject of
Boeklin. Of the many treatments of
ties. There is a deeply sentimental
vein in all Germans and the wish came
to Boeklin to train this untouched and
perfect piece of nature until the soul
should respond to the beauty without
and make the being complete.
The maiden of the Campagna became
the wife of the artist but her heart re
mained stone and the dream vanished.
However, they live now in a villa in
Italy and I have no doubt but that Ma

The greatest thing about Arnold
Boeklin as an artist is that he is nation
al "Echt Deutsch' as the Germans
would say. He has never been inrlueuc-.
ed by Paris. His coloring is heavy and
intense. His conceptions are practical
and deeply sentimental and mingled
with this is something brutal the re
mains, perhaps, of his northern blood.
The Germans say the French cannot
understand him but that they will give
them an opportunity in nineteen hun
dred and I have no doubt but what the
French will rise equal to the occasion.
