Jervis McEntee Diaries
Friday May 2, 1879
Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, Friday, May 2, 1879, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Weir and I breakfasted in my studio after which he went to attend to some business and I to do the same. Mary came over to see if I were ill that I had not appeared at breakfast. Went over there to lunch. Weld, one of the Plymouth boys was there. This afternoon Weir and I went to see Wards equestrian statue of Genl. Thomas. I was thoroughly pleased with it. Not too realistic, not at all conventional, manly, noble, full of life and those undefinable qualities that satisfy the art instincts. Wood, Hall and I went to Sighortners and arranged with him for the Academy dinner. Mary went to Rondout today.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
