P.M. Visit from the Braasches – Their enthusiasm and understanding so great, that they always leave me feeling that visual art is the most important thing in the world. I showed them all the pictures for the Whitney Show, and they fell in love with the 1918 “Black Houses” and purchased it (the 1916 –  Poplar Trees, & 1917 – August North – & the 1920 – Spring Evening – also seemed to appeal to them greatly) –
