  Printmaking by Brigid Marlin of The Society for Art of Imagination
Art is not pleasure, but a means of union among men, joining them together in the same feelings, and indispensable for life and progress towards well-being of individuals and of humanity.
Art is the primary bond of mediation between the external world of the senses and the medium of pure thought and understanding.It could be objected that art was unworthy, being of the world of appearances and its deceptions.
Art originates in the human spirit,it has received the baptism of the hman mind and soul of man. The spiritual values are siezed in the work of art and emphasized with greater purity and clarity than is possible in ordinary reality, therefore the work of art is greater.

Prior to that (1880-81), art had been taught by Myra Irwin Allen who introduced drawing as part of the academic curriculum.With the establishment of an Art Department, this single drawing course was quickly expanded to include perspective drawing and art criticism and more art faculty were soon hired.
That same year a Division of Fine Arts was established, and a minor in art was added to the curriculum; it required eighteen to twenty-four hours of art including six to twelve advanced hours.
He was Chairman of the Art Department from 1962 to 1972, and Dean of the College of Fine Arts from 1966 to 1975.

No elementary art instruction was provided, and courses were only offered to individuals advanced in drawing.
By 1882 the demand for art classes was such that outside instructors were engaged, such as Miss Ida Taylor of Leroy, who taught oil and charcoal.
The remainder of the art was auctioned off at the end of the exhibit.

 Review, Decorative Arts, Gallery, 1882
Art curtains likewise form a feature of the display, and some are of charming design or novel material.
The arts of house decoration and furnishing are, in short, illustrated from widely different sources; and for the agency in these matters which the Direction of the galleries undertakes, it should, from its extensive relations with designers, decorators, and manufacturers, be in the best position to carry out.
The contents of the exhibition are, we understand, to be changed at comparatively short intervals, but in detail, so as to allow of the galleries being kept open continuously.

 Decorative, Art Furnishers Alliance, 1882   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
Less comprehensive than the preceding, the works and objects here shown, except the many examples of Oriental art, are mostly by English manufacturers, and present characteristics of design with which we have been made more or less familiar in recent years.
The so-called Early English is clung to; decorative art is dissociated from Fine Art, and the influence of the historic Continental is scarcely perceptible.
In these considerable ingenuity is shown in getting good effect, with simple stencilled patterns and painted dados, from the tones of ordinary brown paper, sugar paper, soap paper, and other cheap materials; but that such decoration and materials is "likely to effect a revolution in the internal decorations of our homes" is hardly probable.

 Science and Art in Education (1882)
That is where the province of art overlays and embraces the province of intellect.
And, if I may venture to express an opinion on such a subject, the great majority of forms of art are not in the sense what I just now defined them to be–pure art; but they derive much of their quality from simultaneous and even unconscious excitement of the intellect.
I mean, that the source of pleasure is exactly the same as in most of my problems in morphology–that you have the theme in one of the old master's works followed out in all its endless variations, always appearing and always reminding you of unity in variety.

 Jujutsu Book Review - Japan's Ultimate Martial Art, Jujitsu before 1882
All I knew was that the title "felt" appropriate because--as everyone knows--it was in 1882 that judo gained ascendancy and jujitsu began its decline.
It is true that martial arts work best when someone is attacking you; nevertheless, in many jujitsu techniques the technician becomes the aggressor and gives no quarter to his prey.
This may, at times, be frustrating to the reader, but as the international art of ballet uses French terminology, the international art of jujitsu currently relies upon Japanese.

Japan's Ultimate Martial Art: Jujitsu Before 1882 is interesting in that it utilizes a unique antidotal format in its presentation of the material.
The book in fact presents the art of taiho-jutsu (the art of police arresting techniques) and not jujutsu.
The author appears to have made an effort at researching the material pertaining to the history and evolution of Jujutsu and some of its associated elements, but seems to have missed the mark in several key places.
