A note from LeRoy Neiman on Armand Hammer and serigraphs.

Description

This note from LeRoy Neiman touches on the artist’s relationship with Armand Hammer, of Hammer Galleries. The writing consists of two loose quotes from Hammer, and a comment from Neiman on the evolution of silkscreens in America, connecting the artist’s “serigraphs’ to that of the WPA. The note was most likely made in preparation for the artist’s memoir, All Told.
