Note on Art

Subject

A personal note from LeRoy Neiman featuring an anecdote about the artist's former gallerist Armand Hammer and Prince Charles.

Description

This note from LeRoy Neiman provides a drafted anecdote concerning Armand Hammer (Neiman’s former gallerist at Hammer Galleries) and the Prince Charles. A sketelton of a story, the document touches on a joke Hammer made about the prince's interest in watercolors. In conjunction with this narrative, Neiman has also jotted "corrupt / a microcosm / none payment of rates / rent"; this interpolation's context or potential connection to the parallel story proves ambiguous. The record was made in preparation for the artist’s memoir, All Told.
