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.
