Second Cornell Exhibition

The first in 1907 was a series of drawings [original draft: "In watercolor"] of Catherine Gray home developed as a group to send back to my Alma Mater; small scale, fussy.

This second exhibition set of panels was better, but still lacked the necessary size and drive to carry when wall hung.
