From Dr Irving Sandler

Sir: I can understand why Sheila Johnston would like to expropriate our great American master, Edward Hopper, for the English but we won't give him up, not to a culture that has spawned the Sex Pistols, etc, or is that not your authentic national culture?

Sincerely yours,

Irving Sandler
