Jervis McEntee Diaries

Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, December 27, 1882, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Wednesday, Dec 27, 1882 Began my winter picture and worked hard all day. Calvert, Gussie & Janette went to Rondout today. Met Eastman Johnson in the street. He asked me to dine with him which invitation I accepted very gladly as I was expecting to dine at a restaurant as Mary was going up to Alpine. Young Rutherford was at dinner and immediately after Eastman and I went down to the Academy to see the photographs of Muybridge representing action, horses running, trotting & walking and men in various actions. It was most curious and interesting. There were only half a dozen artists present among them Herkomer.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
