` V Thomas Satterwhite Noble: Artist and Teacher _
The following essay, by James Birchfield, is reprinted from ·
"Kentucky Expatriates: Natives and Notable Visitors," the _
exhibition catalog of the current exhibit at the Owensboro Museum
. of Eine Art. (See GB #N30.) · ]
‘ Thomas Satterwhite Noble, eldest son of a wealthy Lexington hemp
_ ·manufacturer, was born May 29, 1835. Precocious, he received his
first formal instruction from a local divine, the Rev. John
Venable. Noble's family moved to Louisville in l8A8, and there
he studied with Gen. Samuel Woodson Price (1828-l9l8). At the
age of l8 Noble passed a winter visiting artists and galleries in
_ New York; at 2l he left for Paris, where the English—born artist
Edward Harrison May (l82M-1887) introduced him to Thomas Couture l
6(l8l5—l879), the history painter and teacher of Manet. Noble
became a favorite of Couture, absorbing much of this_master’s -
style and technique over a period of three years. A
. It was not until after the Civil War that Noble showed his first
major painting, The Slave Mart. This great canvas, portraying 7%
y figures, was included in the 1866 exhibition of the Artist Fund
8 A lat the National Academy of Design in New York. A critical `
‘ l sensation, it was placed in the capitol rotunda in Washington,
and it also received similar praise in Boston, Chicago and St.
Louis. Equal approval greeted John Brown's Blessing and The
Price of Blood. Margaret Garner, photographed~bY Erady and* i ‘
engraved for Harper's Weekly, won him election as an Associate of
the National Academy of Design.
. Now a celebrity, Noble was sought out to head the new McMicken »
School of Design, later to become the Art Academy of Cincinnati.
, From 1869 to l9ON Noble’s talents as an artist were subo dinatod .·‘-
‘ _ to his administrative skill in developing one of Americs's msgnr
art schools. His pupils include Paul Sawyier, the Kentucky
· watercolorist; Gutzon Borglum, sculptor of Mt. Rushmore; and
Y Elizabeth Nourse, the Cincinnati artist who led a Parisian s~”on
GHPGGP;

,  //  The strong appeal which the Munich Academy held for Cincinnati ·
.' students (many of them of German stock), influenced Noble to
study there from 1881 to 1883 under Alexander von Wagner (1838-
1919). During this second European interlude he abandoned
_ historical themes to concentrate on genre and landscape subjects.
` Noble also encouraged his students to study abroad, directing
some to Couture. In 189U, as a gesture to Noble's teaching,
Rodolphe Julian (1839-1907) established a scholarship to receive
‘ a pupil from Cincinnati annually at the Academie Julian in Paris. `
‘ _ Noble remains a key figure for his versatile achievement as an
artist and for his broad influence as a teacher. In retirement
on Long Island, he painted a series of miniature seascapes which
form a surprising foil to the gigantic moral tableaux of his
early career; similarly, his manuscripts show a keen interest in
adopting progressive practices from other academies into the
Cincinnati curriculum. Following Noble's death in New York April
27, 1907, major exhibitions were mounted in Cincinnati, Chicago,
St. Louis and New York. Except for a few life-sized portraits of
eminent Cincinnatians, his work has since passed largely
unnoticed. There is evidence today of renewed interest in this
important Kentucky painter, and 1985, his sesquicentennial year,
will see the first extensive showing of his work in nearly 80
` years at the University of Kentucky Art Museum, Lexington,
Kentucky. _

 i More on Possible Damage to Magnetic Elements from Security
Systems
An investigation by Gene Heltemes, a 3M engineer, may have
, narrowed down the danger of demagnetization of video and
audiotapes, micro software, and 8mm sound tracks to one element
of the security system: the book check-in and check-out unit
used to sensitize and desensitize codes. .
Heltemes said a thorough check of the 3M system shows it to have
otherwise such a weak magnetic field it could not.possibly damage
a tape carried through it. Material could be damaged if passed
within a foot of the check-in/check—out unit, and 3M tells its
customers to keep magnetic materials a safe distance away from
these. (Library Hotline, 13 (April 30, 198N), 7)
East Carolina University Picks an OCLC LS/2000
East Carolina has acquired software to mount an OCLC LS/2000.
local library system. OCLC will provide training, profiling,
installation, and software maintenance.
SOLINET will also be involved in this one: it will "create from
ECU's subscription tapes a local database of some 250,000
records, inserting unique identifiers in the records,...and will
generate a print tape of these identifiers for a third party
vendor to use in printing bar code labels."
Initially, the system will serve ECU's Joyner Library, Branch
Music Library, and Health Sciences Library; but the university
envisions a broader role in working "with the State Library to
ensure that all citizens in all parts of the state have better
access to library resources." (Library Hotline, 13 (May 7,
198u), 5)
L THE UK LIBRARY SYSTEM
5 The following is another in a series of descriptive articles
concerning various aspects of the UK Library System.
The Art Library
The Art Library is the branch of the University of Kentucky
Libraries system that houses art and theater materials.
  Originally located in the Fine Arts Building, the collection was
combined with that of the Music Library. In 1963 it was named
‘ the "Edward Warder Rannells Fine Arts Library." Professor
Rannells was the head of the Department of Art from l929—l95l and
was instrumental in building the art collection during his tenure
at the University.

  
,/3
.f The art and music collections were separated in l97¤, when the
J' Art Library was established as an independent entity in the
’ basement level of the Margaret I. King Library-North building.
Another change came in 1979, when theater books were transferred
, from the main library to the Art Library. At the same time, play
scripts from the Theater Department were brought over to start
the Acting Editions Collection, which now has over l,M00 scripts.
The combined art and theater collections are now comprised of
· over 20,000 monographs, 5,000 bound volumes of serials
supplemented by microfilm, and a vertical file containing
newspaper clippings and pamphlets. History and criticism of
western art and studio practices in the areas of painting,
drawing, sculpture, graphic arts, ceramics, fiber, and decorative
arts are the major subjects included in the art collection. The
y theater collection consists of materials on theater history,
production, design, management, directing, acting, and
playwriting.
