Note on Art

Subject

A note from LeRoy Neiman on artistic reference.

Description

This note from LeRoy Neiman marks impressionable works found in Antwerp, Belgium—a work from Reubens (Elevation of the Cross from 1610) and a selection of Albrecht Dürer woodcuts. Alongside this informal catalogue, Neiman provides a set of brief formal remarks on the pieces. It is unclear whether or not Neiman saw the works in the flesh.
