Jervis McEntee Diaries

Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, January 28, 1881, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Friday, Jan 28, 1881 Still bitterly cold. Painted on my copy of the Vermont picture. Mary and I went to see Bridgemans pictures at Moores Gallery which was filled with them. There was great variety in his sketches which interested me more than his pictures. His collection looked as thought he was not hampered by any thing but could go where he pleased to find subjects. Mr. Pratt spent the evening at my studio to get the dates of some of Giffords sketches. At a sale of American pictures last night Giffords last picture Kauterskill Clove sold for $2575. Moore gave him $1135 for it. All the other American pictures seemed to sell well.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
