Press-Telegram (Newspaper) - May 18, 1959, Long Beach, California Learned Art By ELISK EMERY "Seeing is an art lost to our Jules Lungsner old Junior League members iteeting Friday morning nt Virginia Country Club. "Looking is something very different; we look habitually n order to accomplish some- hing else. But in seeing we seek to discover the nature, he pattern and meaning of :he thing seen. Perhaps it is our industrialized civilization that has divorced us from our environment; we must delib erately, consciously make an effort to learn to see, just as we learn to swim. It is this search for relationships ol form, color, line, texture that tantalizes the artist and con- stitutes his particular ability.' Langsner, Southern Califor- nia art critic for Art News Magazine, used numerous slides to illustrate his discus MON.-SUN. MAY 18-24 California DATE NUT LOAF (Reg. 55c) ea.

Inviting comments from his udience, the art critic used ictures of two seemingly dis- imilar Dutch painters, the ontemporary Piet Mondrian nd 17th century Pieter de Hooch to show the analogy of heir technique in dealing vith the infinite relationships if areas. "THE EYE is an amazing nstrument. It reports wheth er or not an object is smooth or rough, hot or cold, light or >eavy, yet the eyeball does not reach out and touch the mm. Modern painters are in- trigued by the translation of mpressions into visual, pic- torial terms. Manet, about 1863, helped start this revo lution of the eye by his paint- ing, "Luncheon on the Grass." "Empress Eugenie looked at the unclad girls picnicking with their black-frocked es- corts and was shocked, yet at that moment, hanging in the Louvre, was an almost iden- tical scene against a Ren aissance background painted by Di Giorgio. The excitement was caused, not by the fi ures, but by the contempo- rary setting." Exploring the methods of Monet, Pissarro, Turner, Tou- louse-Lautrec, Gauguin, Van Gogh, Degas, Vuillard, Ma- tisse, Seurat, Picasso, Braque and others, Langsner said, "Each inaugurated new ideas, and each 'was of exceptional intelligence.
