March 7, 1917 Seven Asking Prices

March 7, 1917

The asking prices of seven of my artist colleagues for their works in the upcoming 45th OSA Spring Exhibition opening two days from now, on March 9, 1917

My paintings are still in the Shack with no asking price. That’s fine by me but I do find it rather brazen to ask a half year’s wages for a painting during wartime.
