Excerpt from American Painting Today In the past five years during which such an incredible number of individual pictures and murals have had purely American subject matter, it has been possible to notice that what one painter has called the gulf between looking and see ing has been crossed by many. This is what creates a well warranted hopefulness. Incidentally, it is what has created the many accomplished works which must be credited to the American artist of this period. In the first enthusiasm of five years ago there were many sociological paintings which indicated on the part of the artist more courage than equip ment.

Little beeswax candles in tissue paper holders, one for every child, they shine with'a pure, radiant light; and at the close of the service the children carry their lighted candles out into the night. Here, in this quiet spot, removed from the drive and bustle of the new Bethlehem, one grows in understanding, for Mr. Wolle is a Moravian; the simplicity and strong beauty of those old chorales are his spiritual inheritance; he, too, as a little child, must have carried his lighted candle.
