  ROMEO AND JULIET - The paintings of Russia hung in two rooms at the left of the water entrance to the Art Palace. There were two brothers named Makowsky, among the exhibitors - Constantine Egorovitch and Vladimir Egorovitch. The former was the author of this work, but the brother was thought to excel in the general attributes of an artist. Constantine had three other picturs on the walls; "A Bacchanal," "The Bride's Attire," and the portrait of a lady. His pictures, "The Cossack's Reply," "The Russian Wedding" and "Christ Before Pilate," in fact, nearly all the Russian paintings which Americans have seen, sustained the reputation which the Empire gained through the exhibition at Chicago of Muscovite industries.

JOAN OR ARC LISTENING TO THE VOICES - This oil painting was hung on the east wall of Gallery 55, in the East Pavilion of the Art Palace, among the pictures exhibited by France. It was painted by Diogenes Ulysses Maillart, of Paris, and was the only picture by this artist to be seen at the Exposition. Maillart has not become celebrated over the world, and his instincts show a conservatism that would have benefitted him in the ages when faith, devotion and patriotism were more secure in public interest. The girl of Dom-Remy working in the fields, is constantly solicited from heaven to save Charles VII. and France. The figure and enthusiasm of the maid are finely established on the true lines of art.
