INTRODUCTION



INTRODUCTION

IN THE year 1909 the City printed a "Catalogue of the
Works of Art belonging to The City of New York,"
including the works of art acquired by the City previous
to September i, 1908. The present volume carries this
work forward to the 31st of December, 191 9, at the same
time including the description of a few works of art acquired
by the City before September, 1908, but inadvertently
omitted in the first volume. With the exception of these
few, all the objects thus catalogued have received the approval
of the Art Commission, in accordance with the terms of the
Charter of the City.

The jurisdiction of the Art Commission, as defined by the
Charter as it now exists, covers very broad ground, including
within its scope buildings and various structures erected by
the City or by private parties on City property. No attempt
has been made, however, to cover the whole of its activities,
it having been thought best to limit the enumeration to such
objects as are currently known as "Works of Art," in this
following the general method adopted in Volume I. Tablets
that consist solely of inscriptions are not included.

The Commission has felt it necessary, in the interest of
economy, to lim.it strictly the number of illustrative repro-
ductions. It has been guided in its choice not only by the
excellence of the work shown but also partly by the promi-
nence of the subject of portrait or statue. In a number of
cases it has been compelled to forego the illustration of spe-
cial works because it has been found impossible to obtain
satisfactory photographs for reproduction.
