Post-Impressionist Opening: November 8, 2015
I suppose you have been going everywhere—to the Grafton Galleries, and the Bernard Shaw play. . . . Now that Clive is in the van of aesthetic opinion, I hear a great deal about pictures. I don’t think them so good as books. But why all the Duchesses are insulted by the post-impressionists, a modest sample of painters, innocent even of indecency, I cant conceive. However, one mustn’t say they are like other pictures, only better, because that makes everyone angry.
Letter to Violet Dickinson, November 27, 1910.
