Jervis McEntee Diaries

Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, Thursday, March 11, 1875, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Gertrude and I went out directly after lunch to escape the reception which came off today. Stopped in at Goupils to see the pictures. Were both impressed with the frivolity of the subjects and the importance of the technique. From there she went to Mr. Boardmans and I to the Academy to see Mr. Richards, to Sillecks whose bill I paid and then to see Mary & Sara. Staid there until half past five. Church was in in the forenoon and invited us to go to see Ristori in Lucrezia Borgia and he dined with us after which we went to the play. Her acting is simply superb. I have no words to characterise it fully.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
