Jervis McEntee Diaries and Letters: Diary, Volume II, 1874 November 26-1878 December 8

Have you ever wanted to explore the tiny day-to-day details of an artist's life 150 years ago? Then join the Archives of American Art as we transcribe the Jervis McEntee diaries and letters! Hudson River School painter Jervis McEntee (1828-1891) was one of the leading New York artists during the late 19th century and an incredibly prolific diarist. In his almost 4,500 diary entries in 1872-1890, McEntee records his thoughts, observations, activities, encounters, and anxieties. He paints a vivid picture of an artist's daily life with his words, and he provides a window on the New York art scene during and after the Gilded Age.
