Title: Page from the 1919 National Academy of Design's annual exhibition catalogue

Date: 1919 Mar. 22 through Apr. 27

Physical Details: 1 exhibition catalog : ill. ; 19 x 13 cm.

Description: handwritten on verso: The entire left side of this is a blur and failure. The beautiful mountain up by Purrington Shou_d thru the trees against the sunset sky and the tree trunk and branch pattern to the left, just a smudge in this, was a beautiful whitcall (sp?) pattern. I really don't like to have this terrible reproduction seen. Did you read the criticism in the magazine section of the times? really a wonderful write up. The sky pattern turns beautifully to the left giving the composition balance which this reproduction lacks.
