Jervis McEntee Diaries

Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, January 3, 1888, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Tuesday, Jan 3, 1888 Still cold. A messenger came to my room with a note from Mrs. Weeks for a seat and a box at the Opera yesterday. Have painted on some of my sketches but am far from contented or happy. I went up to the Sherwood building and called on Geo. Hall. Some of his pictures looked very nicely to me. He is a very sensitive man and suffers for it. Collins has wounded him by some allusion to his dues at the club and so he stays away from there. I told him that ought not to keep him away and after talking with him a little he said he would come there. I went to the club in the evening, saw Collins, Perry & Homer. Homer says he has not painted much for a year and wont paint when he dont feel like it. From what he said he is like all the rest of us. Has no encouragement.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
