A group of more than thirty contemporary paintings and drawings by 21 artists has been loaned to The Brooklyn Museum Art School by Dr. and Mrs. Theodore J. Edlich Jr. of Manhattan, who began collecting art about 1935. Their collection will be on display in the Art School Gallery for about one month, beginning January 16th. The exhibition is particularly interesting because it includes seven early works by Franz Kline, among them, Portrait of Virginia, a painting of Mrs. Edlich, and six paintings by Marca-Relli. A brush on paper by controversial Jackson Poll[o]ck, two handsome bronze sculptures by Peter Agostini and a wash drawing by Boardman Robinson give the collection variety in media and style. This exhibition is open to the general public without charge, Mondays through Saturdays from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.; Sundays and Holidays 1:00 to 5:00 p.m.
