Before taking a class during her senior year at Rosemead High School, Lisa Chan thought art history was nothing more than learning the difference between a Monet and Manet, a Picasso and Pissarro. But while earning an art history degree at UCLA last spring and interning at museums in Los Angeles and Washington, D.C., Chan, 22, has discovered there's almost no end to where art history can lead. This summer, Chan was one of 12 undergraduates chosen for an internship with the J.

A retired art history professor pleaded guilty Tuesday to possessing 14th century religious and historical documents stolen from libraries at the Vatican and in Spain. Anthony Melnikas did not admit taking the illustrated manuscript pages. But the 69-year-old former Ohio State professor gave no explanation of how he obtained them.

Jennifer Merin's detailed survey of Haitian art (Nov. 17) is a splendid guide to artists and galleries in Haiti. The author has done her homework about Haiti's art history, and she writes knowledgeably about specific artists and prices of their work. For those readers not able to travel to Haiti, my Spirit of Haiti Gallery opened Nov. 1 at 1583 Spinnaker Drive, Ventura Harbor Village, Ventura. The gallery offers many of the artists cited by Merin. LAURA PECK Ventura

Thomas W. Gaehtgens, an internationally recognized scholar who is director of the German Center for the History of Art in Paris, will be the new leader of the Getty Research Institute, sources close to the Getty say. His appointment, expected to be announced today, will end a 10-month search for a successor to Thomas Crow, who left the prestigious position to chair the department of modern art history at New York University's Institute of Fine Arts.

As an artist and teacher, I found David Ferrell's article interesting ("Never Mind the High Praise. How About a Little Ink?" Feb. 3). He really put his finger on the problem. It is difficult for artists to get any ink, but we work at it, and some are more successful than others. Yuroz is a great talent and has a good business manager who knows how to promote him as an artist. But aside from getting the museums' attention, artists living in the Los Angeles area, especially in the San Fernando Valley, get little or no ink from the print media.

One hundred years ago today, on March 18, 1912, two men dressed in black crossed the Seine in Paris to pay a call on their younger brother, an artist who lived alone in his studio on Rue Amiral-de-Joinville. Half a century later, the artist would vividly remember the dark clothes his brothers had worn that day, as if they had come to challenge him to a duel. The visit, it seems, was brief. Once his brothers had departed, the artist locked up the house and took a taxi by himself to the Quai d'Orsay, where the Salon des Independants was scheduled to begin later that week.
