In South' America

DETROIT.-Mrs. Ruth Van' Sickle Ford, President of the Chicago Aca- demy of Fine Arts, said yesterday

that she "felt certain" the "Madonna

1 of '. Bogota" was a genuine painting

by Raphael. 'Mrs. F.ord (was a guest at the summer home of Mr. and Mrs. Waldso Turner, of Detroit.

"Claims of- Professor, Santiago Martinez Delgado, Professor of Architecture and Fine Arts at the University of Bogota,. Colombia i

the picture, have been substantiated by documents, X-rays . .and expen monts and I feel certain" the painting is a Raphael," she said. .'"Professor Delgado brought the painting to Chi-

cago for examination." '

In Chicago, Leo A, Marzolo, re- storer of paintings at the Chicago Art Institute, estimated that the value

of the' painting "would not be a cent( less than 100,00t0 dollars',' if it was, proved genuine. ' I

Mrs. Ford said'that Marzolo would be commissioned > to restore the paint-

ing and' that it would hang in Chicago. I

Professor Delgado said he found the picture in a Bogota home and that it had been in ,the possession of one family, for four centuries. It was generally regarded as a" copy of the "Madonna of the Rose" in the Prado

Galleries in Madrid, art experts agreeing the latter painting was the

work of either Giulio Romano or Piercino del -Vaga, pupils of Raphael. In South America the "Madonna of Bogota" was considered as the ,work of a South American painter, Pro-

fessor Delgado said. i
