College News and Departmental Notes: Fine Arts
by Departmental notes - 1918
Professor Grace A. Cornell, of the department of fine arts, has been holding a seminar at the Metropolitan Museum of Art during the fall. The course consisted of ten lectures upon the theory and applications of art—especially with relation to industry, manufacture, costume, and house * furnishing—and was established exclusively for salespeople and buyers. The lectures were well attended by representatives of the large department stores, including some from other cities.
