Jervis McEntee Diaries

Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, April 21, 1881, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Thursday, Apr 21, 1881 Went to New Haven by 11 oclock train. Beautiful spring day. Weir met me at the station. We lunched together, went to his studio a little while where he showed me his large head of Woolsey which he has put in plaster and intends to put in bronze. It looked very vigorous to me though I told him I thought the treatment of the hair not broad enough. From there we walked out to Mrs. Ewells where I had an interview which was not satisfactory. Came back to his room and then to the house where I spent the night.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
