Description A Basket of Chips HAZING EXPERIENCE AT THE ECOLE DES BEAUX ARTS4 - PARIS The looked for nonsense on first entering the great school of art had passed and the Nouveaus thought that there were no more "tortures" to be endured, other than the usual chores of the Ateher.`" One of these chores was to brand the easles and stools in order to secure the property of each atelier from the raids of the others. I had been chosen to do the branding of the new furniture, and, feeling a little pride in my branding ability I went at it in earnest. I had played branding as a child with mother's stove scraper and left a burnt scar on doors, chairs, and other furni- ture and had afterward received the usual reward. And later in life I had done some real branding, but on this occasion there was no need of the rope. The thought of rope brings to my mind the wonder of mus- cular control. One of the boy accomplishments at my time was to learn to throw a rope. It was probably thirty-five years since I had tried it when I noticed my boy James trying to throw a loop over a standing object.

This is the French government school of fine arts and is thought of as one of the important schools of art in the world. The begin- nings of the Ecole were in 1648 (the founding of the French Royal Academy of Painting and Sculpture by Cardinal Mazarin) and 1671 (the founding of the Royal Academy of Architecture by Jean-Baptiste Colbert, the great minister of Louis XIV). Following the French Revolution, the school took its present name with the union of the two academies in 1793. In 1863 the directorship of the united Acrrdemie des Benzlx-AT/s of the Institute of France was transferred to an official of the national government and a board was selected from those considered the most prominent artists of the nation. Candidates for entry into the great school, both in Harwood's day and the present, must pass severe admission ex- aminations, and students must compete every six months to stay in the program. In addition to regular courses, Ecole students also work outside the school in the studios of various professors. 25 An ntelier is a specific artist's studio in which there dents.
