                                                                      Wed. Jan. 11, —
A.M. to Frick Museum — the beauty of Vermeer overpowering — What a truly great painter he is — Rembrandt’s Self-portrait — the new Cezanne, El Greco’s St. Jerome – the St. Francis by ? – Organ music (a piece by Bach & one by Handel). What balm it was to me, after the cheapness of the night before.
—Charles E. Burchfield, January 11, 1939
