Thursday, March 5, 2015

Trip to N.Y. for a little work on the Guggenheim jury and for the “testimonial” dinner for Frank. [Rehn]

Mon. p.m. with Moe going over unlikely projects, discerning most of them.

Tues. evening – the dinner - photo taken as a group at the gallery – Dinner at Chop House A very enjoyable affair. A silver cigarette case (with our names + year of entry to the gallery engraved inside) present to Frank. After dinner, stories of Mattson + Morgranet stars at that sort of thing.

Little to relate of trip – days at gallery looking at things –

Hartman’s show – Cameron Booth – Paul Bronson –

Visit to Met. “Vien of Toledo” + “Harvest Scene”  even much greater than I had remembered, which was great enough. Two imaginative landscapes by Cosimo.

Evening with Frank + Geo. Olds.

Charles Burchfield, March 4 -8, 1945
