LOAN COLLECTIONS. -.ft NEARLY 120,000 VISITORS TO ART C LLERY. At the Glynn Vivian Art Gallery to- day a meeting of the Swansea Corpora- tion Art and Cratts Committee was 'held. The chair was occupied by Mr. F. E. Tunbridge. It was reported that the number of visitors since the open- ing was 111,858. A letter was read from the Museums' Asociation with reference to the forth- coming conference at Swansea in 1914 confirming their decision to hold the same here. Last year an excellent collection of pictures was loaned by the Victoria and Albert Museum to the Gallery. These have been returned and replaced by a weil-chosen collection or masterly works of representative schools. The meeting considered a -sub-com- mittee's report on the new loan col- lection from Victoria and Albert Museum; the Melville collection of water-colours, now on exhibition; the china, pottery, etc., ottered on load and for sale to the Gallery. The discussion on tije china was deferred. Mr. Mui ray, A.R.C.A., reported thar he had obtained on loan for the Gal- lery the two Etrusion vases, which, until the "Leader" drew attention to them, had been accommodated at the Guildhall. Mr. Murray reported that the attendance at the Deffett Francis Art 1913, when the opening took place, was 3,618. Reporting on the possibility of erect- ing a lift at the Deffetfc Francis Gallery, Mr. M. E. Morgan, A.R.B.A., said the cost would be £ 425, and it would prove an attractive feature. The matter was referred to a sub-commit- tee. Mr. John Dyer said it would prove a great advantage. The report of the Inspector's visits to the School of Arts was highly satis- factory. It was decided that the fees for the subsequent sessions be 10s. 6d. per term, and £ 1 10s. per session.
