Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, March 22, 1888, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Thursday, Mar 22, 1888 We finished the hanging of the Academy exhibition this afternoon and reported it to Mr. Richards. I think it a very varied and interesting exhibition and one that will claim attention. Ideas in art are changing and I confess I grow more and more to like a broad treatment which is based on knowledge of the details and facts of nature. Attended a meeting of the Artists Guild of N.Y. at the Academy and became a member. Its objects are to protect the interests of artists at Expositions away from N.Y. and which are not strictly art institutions.
