  • Description

    The French Minister of State for Cultural Affairs, M.Andre Malraux, opened an exhibition of early American art in Paris today (Friday). The exhibition is the first important exhibition of its kind ever put on in the French capital.

    The paintings were the work of virtually untrained, or "primitive", artists during 18th and 19th centuries. There are 111 paintings in the exhibition, which will continue until mid-April.

    The exhibition at the Grand Palais, in the centre of Paris, was put on by Colonel Edgar Williams Garbisoh and his wife. Many of the paintings came from an 18th-century mansion in the American State of Maryland.

    Colonel Garbisoh inherited the mansion 15 years ago.
