WONDERFUL TRIP TO EUROPE JUST

 

TWO YEARS BEFORE SHE DIED.  ONE

TWO FAVORITES - JOSEF ALBERS' HOMMAGE TO THE SQUARE WAS GIVEN TO ME BY JIM FOR CHRISTMAS IN 1968.  I ALWAYS LOVED IT AND HUNG IT IN THE LIVING ROOM.

 

GRETA GARBO WAS A FAVORITE TOO - SHE HUNG AT THE BOTTOM OF THE STAIRS IN THE ATRIUM.

I DON'T REMEMBER WHICH ONE OF MY ARTIST

FRIENDS  GAVE ME "THE LOVERS" ON THE LEFT, BUT

I HAVE ALWAYS LOVED IT.  IT HUNG IN OUR FRENCH QUARTER CREOLE COTTAGE FOR YEARS -

 

AS DID THE POSTER OF FRIEND ALLAN ROBINSON'S EXHIBITION IN NEW YORK - A PARTY I SHALL NEVER FORGET.
