Box MF 973
Back in the Kerlan Collection, working on my obsession project, I found this photo of a drawing in a folio of newspaper clippings. It depicted a room with a woven bedspread on well-used bed, an open window framing a summer scene, and a stack of books and a pair of shoes in the corner. All combining in an evocative scene. As I was trying to suss out the artist’s intention I saw this inscription in the lower left corner :
A lover of the artist.
What a priceless gift is this image, a memory of the place where their dreams once came true, so many years ago.
Carl wasn’t her only lover, but those stories will be saved for another day.
