The Treatment of Drapery in Art. By G. W. Rhead.

(G. Bell and Sons. 6s.)—There is a great deal of really interesting and valuable matter in this treatise on drapery, both from the theoretical and practical sides of the question. Illustrations and diagrams explain the text, which is clear and to the point. One of the most interesting of the illustrations shows four statuettes of mourning monks from the tombs of the Dukes of Burgundy at Dijon. These works are of the fifteenth century, and are marvels of expressive treatment without convention or stiffness.
