ART MUSEUM OPENS PREHISTORIC SHOW; Vast Collection Assembled by Professor Frobenius Includes Many Rock Pictures

By Edward Alden JEWELL

The Museum of Modern Art, 11 West Fifty-third Street, opens to the public today an exhibition that conducts visitors back into the past some 200 centuries. Effectively installed on three floors are facsimiles of prehistoric rock paintings and engravings by "dawn artists," chosen from the vast collection assembled by Professor Leo Frobenius.
