TENNESSEE NEGRO SHOWS SCULPTURE; William Edmondson Displays Small Exhibition at Museum of Modern Art INSPIRED BY CONVERSION Work Viewed as Contribution to American 'Folk' Expression--House Designs Shown Art Brevities

By Edward Alden JEWELL

It is a very modest little show that serves to introduce to the New York public America's latest "find" in the realm of sculpture, the Tennessee Negro, William Edmondson. Nine or ten of his small, quite "primitive," untutored and unpretentious figures have been installed in a recessed space at the Museum of Modern Art (temporary quarters on- the Concourse level at 14 West Forty-ninth Street).
