Excerpt

With the thought that the art of sculpture could be advanced in this country by the united efforts of the sculptors and those interested in the art, the National Sculpture Society was organized in 1893. One of the means by which it was hoped that this advancement could be accomplished was by holding exhibitions of current work.

Through the generous cooperation of other institutions and our lay members, the Society since its formation has been able to present five comprehensive exhibitions,--three of them in New York, one in Baltimore, and one in Buffalo. Now, through the cooperation of the Trustees of the California Palace of the Legion of Honor and the liberality of one of our lay members, we come to San Francisco.

Our aim has been to make this exhibition national in scope, and to include the various tendencies in contemporary sculpture. A special effort has therefore been made to bring together the best work from all parts of the country, as well as that of Americans now abroad.

To those who have made it possible for us to assemble and exhibit the works now shown, the Society acknowledges its deep indebtedness, and extends its sincere gratitude.

A. A. Weinman, President.
