Abstract

In this revision of the McAdory art test an attempt was made to use pictures which could be comprehended without peculiar cultural background. As an art test for Indians the revision failed in its purpose; the Indians based their judgment upon the utilitarian rather than upon the artistic characteristics of the objects and situations pictured.
