matter, if often, or even usually, exotic, if rarely as light and charming as this.

Howard Norton Cook is a widely traveled and highly sophisticated artist
whose vagabonding aud varied interests have much influenced his choice of
subjects. He came to the graphic arts afler some years devoted to tobacco
farming and advertising, and this fact, too, is not without significance in
uncovering the sources of his interests.

A native of Massachusetts-he was born at Springfield in 1901-Cook received his training at the Art Students’
League. In 1934, he was granted a Guggenheim for creative work in print
making.

The treatment is adroit with­ out being slick, thawing a strong feeling for

design nicely balanced against the realities of the situation.
