Jervis McEntee Diaries
Saturday March 30, 1878
Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, March 30, 1878, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Varnishing day at the Academy. Strange faces. Few of the old artists. My only picture "Over the hills and far Away" hung in one of the best places. Had a hot argument with Coleman. He thinks original men failures. Says he despises American Art. And when I do original things I do my worst things. We both said bitter things. But why argue. Coleman is essentially a follower, not a leader, not an original man. Whittredge and I went down town to invest the Irving fund. Did not finish it.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
