States, in the capacity of violinist,
conductor, composer, and teacher. As
a creative musician he has a splen-

European tendencies in musical liter-

backgrounds have been very cleverly
overlaid by Karl Venth with dif-
ferent colors and through his tech-
nical independence can not be per-
ceived even by the expert. He has a
certain personal note, and depth of
feeling'. Wherever he uses a national
color, lie obtains strong effects,

"The composer, Carl Venth, who
offered a number of larger works

uses occasionally the whole tone

nections of the chord of the ninth,
be ehows his true self in a different
way. At bottom he loves melody,

The Signale for Oct. 22 writes:
"Carl Venth had a glowing suc-
cess with his concert Oct. 1 in the
Berlin Sing Akademie. He was as-
sisted by soloists of the first rank."
The Rheinische Musik und Thea-
terzeitung Oct. 11 adds:
"In the Berlin Sing Akademie we
heard compositions by Carl Venth.
Especially with the songs, "The Lit-
tle Lady of Ching-IIsi," he achieved
an extraordinary success."
Besides these other noted critics
"We all have studied with the
greatest interest your two one-act
operas. We are convinced that they
are not only very effective for the
stage, but also musically absolutely
ripe. The music is heartfelt and sin-
cere."—Dr. Will Aron.
"As far as your' composition eve-
ning is concerned, we can give you
the pleasant news that our Dr.
Auckenthaler had occasion to get an
idea of -your work. We can assure
you that he was more than pleased
with every number."—N. Simrock.
"Mr. Venth is an exquisite musi-
cian, whose works had a splendid
success at a concert in the Sing
Akademie in Berlin. We have come
to know him in the most distinguish-
ed way—through his chamber music
and songs."—Prof. Max Chop.
"My heartiest congratulations to
your success. It gave me a sincere
pleasure to hear your beautiful
works."—Professor Dr. Siegried Ochs.

An exhibition of thirty-five paint-
ings by William P. Silva is ndw on
display at the Carnegie Public Li-
brary under the auspices ol'.the Fort
Worth Art Association.
Mr. Silva is a native of Georgia,
but his home and studio is now in
California, at Carmel-by-the-Sea. It
i': there that some of his most beau-
tiful canvases are painted. In this
present connection are two especially
characteristic of California, at once j
sc big and yet possessed of a poetic j
charm, that is to be found in all of j
Mr. Silva's work. "Sun Through the
Fog, Point Lobos," is a very deco-
rative and delightful painting of the
rugged cypress trees, dark and dra-
matic against a light background of
moving sea and luminous sky. "Dusk"
is a different subject, differently
treated, but just as expressive. It
is of the mountains and the sea, en-
veloped in the magical haze of the
. Eleven of thesa paintings ..are of
California and t'inecn of theni are
painted in the old South. The color-
ful and alluring azalea gardens in
Charleston, S. C., are the themes of
many of these poetic canvases. It
was with his Caroling pictures that
Mr. Silva first attracted the atten-
tion and admiration of the public.
The gray moss on the trees helps to
give a subtle charm of color not to
be found in every lovely garden.
"Grey Moss and Azaleas" and "A
Sunny Morning" are beautiful exam-
ples of harmony in color, beautifully
reflected into the still pools of a for-
Mr. Silva wasft a successful busi-
ness man who, having attained a
place of comfort and confidence in
the world, and having successfully
launched his only son on his voyage
through life, decided to make the one
thing that had always been of the
gieatest joy to him, his serious vo-
cation. He was GO years old when
he and Mrs. Silva changed their
whole way of living and traveled,
first to Europe,'then about from one
art colony to another, until they fi-
nally found that fascinating spot
which they call their home, Caraiel-
His work has steadily improved;
from year to year and ho is now
welcomed at home and abroad as an
American artist who has an indi-
vidual message, expressed in a very
personal sort of way. His paintings
possess sincerity, beauty and charm
and are of the type that are always
a delight in a home.
A very happy hour may be spent
in the company of Mr. Silva's pic-
tures at the library. He is of inter-
est to those who remember his misty
"Incoming Fog," which belongs in
our permanent collection.
