"Your cover for COLUMBIA. Winter 32-22 was arresting as you should be for being so talented, topical, classical, comical and accurate / impressionist in so many ways. It's NEW YORKER PLUS.RODIN would be proud and happy to see the inspiration he created put to modern use. It's REALLY good. I studied in Avery just beyond St Paul's. The choice and placements of the public art is exceptional as your art verifies. Well Done and Thanks!William Taylor GSAPP '70"
