An exhibition of painters of the international group, from America, England, Ireland, Rumania, Spain and Japan is announced. Some of these painters are quite well known, others are to be shown for the first time in this country. We believe them to be men of talent, for whom are anticipating general recognition in the near future. The exhibition is to be under the direction of Marie Sterner and will be on view at the Brooklyn Museum from October 8 until the 28th.

October 8, 1931
An International Exhibition arranged and circulated by Marie Sterner will have its first showing at the Brooklyn Museum from October 8th through October 28th. In her foreword in the catalogue, Mrs. Sterner calls attention to the confusion so current in the understandings of the terms of art and regrets the way in which the hysterical moods of the public have been played upon, so often leading into channels where the genuine artistic merit has been disregarding in favor of something only startling. In this Exhibition, as she says, the pictures have been gathered together for their real art significance without regard for national preference or the advertised value of reputations.
Among the exhibitors likely to be known to the public are such genuinely gifted workers as Gifford Beal, Charles Burchfield, Marc Chagall, Augustus John, Leon Kroll, Marie Laurencin, Barneard Lintott, Jerome Myers, Sir William Orpen, John Slcan, Eugene Speicher, Albert Sterner, Medard Verburg, and Ignacio Zuloaga—a list only of a few of the better known ones but showing nevertheless the catholicity of the representation.
The Show will not, unfortunately, be in condition to be reviewed before October 7.
