ART IX SWANSEA. MISS MADGE OPENS A NEW STUDIO. On Wednesday, Miss Annie Madge gave an At Home in her new studio. 29, Walter-road. Among those present were Lady Jenkins. Mrs. Morgan B. Williams. Mr. and Mrs. Glascodine. Dr. and Mrs. Latimer, Mrs. Lambert Bath, Mrs. Henry Bath, the Misses Griffiths, Miss Brock, Mrs. "D. A. Davies, Mrs. and }li,s Strick, Mrs. Peel, Miss Aubrey. Miss Home, Mr. and Mrs. H. Martin, and Mrs. H. Wills. Miss Madge is to be congratulated upon what proved to be a very successful inauguration of her new studio. The room, situated in the centre ot Walter-road, is a good one, and the walls are covered with paintings which show the versatility and energy of the artist. Miss Madge has been for many years a contributor to the annualexhi- < bition of the Swansea Sketching Club, of which, indeed, she was the first, and, for two years, the only lady member. No one who sees her work can tail to be impressed by her variety, not only of subject but of treatment. Her studio com- prises oil paintings, architecture, figure compo- sitions, iV:e. delicate studies in water-colours of landscapes and flowers portrait miniatures on ivory, &e. Of course. tiie same standard ot ex- cellence does not run through all her works. A few of the pictures are ambitious compositions, attempted, probably, before she had acquired complete mastery of her brush. In some of the studies the technique is decidedly good, whether in water-colours cr oils. Interiors seem to be a strong point with Miss Madge, and they are pic- tures one can live with without tiring of them. But it is particularly in miniatures that Miss Madge excels. These are exquisite in daintiness and finish. Swansea already posses-es several schools and profess rs of painting, but there is room for another the art has not received as much atten- tion a-; music. Miss Madge has already a class of pupils. She is well qualified to teach, having studied for years in our local School of Art, and in London, at the St. John s Wood and the Slade Schools, III addition to having received private lessons in the technique ot oils from Mr. Bernard Hall, and of water-colours from Miss Spiller.
