Jervis McEntee Diaries

Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, February 17, 1888, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Friday, Feb 17, 1888 Somewhat milder this morning. I painted on a little Autumn picture yesterday and have made a pleasant little picture of it. A letter from Auburn wanting me to send something there for exhibition. Eastman called to see me and I showed him all my pictures. He said they were even more interesting than he thought they would be and predicted I would get a good deal of money for them. Attended an illustrated lecture of Muybridge at the Academy on animal locomotion. It was most interesting. Afterwards Calvert and I went to the club where I wrote to Daly to ask when I could have five front center seats in the balcony, after Mar 9th to see the Midsummer Nights dream. Wood and I went around to the Salmagundi Club just before dinner.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
