The Artist's Wife

  History/Biography of Ary Stillman  

P U B L I C A T I O N S  >  R E M I N I S C E N C E S


These Reminiscences, written in 1969, were originally intended to remain among the papers of The Stillman-Lack Foundation, to be brought out at some future time, when I would not be on hand, and when family, friends and the public would be asking for details about the life of Ary Stillman. However, recent events have made me reconsider. For one thing, the story connected with Ary's painting "The Kitchen" aroused much interest, and a demand for more. Then a niece of Ary's wrote that, on seeing some of Ary's paintings, her friends were eager to hear about the artist. "Where shall I begin, Aunt Frances?" she asked. Thereupon I decided that those who might be interested in Ary Stillman should learn about him now, not at some future date.

A word about the last chapter. These pages were originally included in my 1952 European diary rather than in the Reminiscences. However, they seem to me to be a necessary part of the whole picture of Ary Stillman, perhaps the most important part of all.
