WORK IS FRUITFUL
Schroff Completes Eighty
Canvases at Carmel
FAIRBANKS BUSY ON BUST
Ezra Meeker, Typical Pioneer,
Poses for Study
Cypresses and sunwarmed beaches,
sunny landscapes with the richness of
coloring characteristic of the work of
Alfred H. Schroff, head of the depart
ment of fine arts, are subjects of 80
or more canvases completed by the ar
tist during the summer. Avard Fair
banks, professor of sculpture, did pro
fessional work as well during the sum
mer months, completing, among other
things, a study for a portrait bust of
Ezra Meeker, pioneer of the Northwest.
Besidos the large canvases done by
Professor Schroff during the summer
are 30 or more water colors which he
can develop into large oil works later.
Schroff at Carmel in Summer
During the vacation spent at his
summer home at Carmel-by-the-Sea in
California, Professor Schroff not only
had a number of pupils for out-door
sketching classes, but held an exhibit
at the Arts and Crafts society at Car
mel, and kept open house daily.
The prosepects for an exhibit of
Schroff paintings on the Oregon cam
pus are not yet definitely known. The
late work of the painter will recall, in
subject at least, the prize-winning can
vases of last year which won against
great competition tho first prizes at
both the Seattle society of fine arts
and the arts society at Springville,
Utah. Professor Schroff consented this
year to have a number of his paintings
-n the northwest circuit of the Seat
tle arts society, which exhibits in the
important art centers. Canvases were
also sent this week to Los Angeles
with the idea of an exhibit at the Am
tug Dust oi Jlizra MoeKer, to dg com
plotGd by Professor Fairbanks at a
later date, is already well under way
in the clay. Professor Fairbanks was
anxious to do a study of the aged
pioneer both bocauso of his interest in
western subjects for sculpture, and be
cause of the extremely interesting
head of Mr. Meeker from a character
Study Is Typical
The study is typical, with a patri
archal beard, silky white hair, high
forehead, rugged features and shaggy
brows. The composition breathes both
austerity and sweetness. Mr. Meeker
made a special trip to Eugene in Sep
tember to pose for his portrait.
A study for a marker for tlio Old
Oregon trail was done by Professor
Fairbanks in the round as a prelimin
ary to a bronze bas-relief. The study
in the round was made from the stand
point. of design, and later for fore
shortening problems on the medallion.
A sketch, somewhat changed from the
one done last year as a problem for
the trail met with still greater approval
by the committee headed by Waltor
Two panels for the front of the new
campus power plant are now being de
signed by Professor Fairbanks.
