Formal black text heading, "The Word of Modern Art: Artists as Writers" with a lengthy description on a white background.
White walled gallery space with light brown wood flooring. Closest to use on the left on a wall going diagonally to the right is the painting by Marsden Hartley, "Anemones". On the right side of the frame you can see several small sculptures mounted on white rectangular blocks, and beneath the framed art works on the left wall there are pieces of paper and books scattered on a white shelf.

The walls are crowded with framed art pieces, most prominently a large painting of a female and male figure on the left and a portrait of a young man with dark hair on the top right. Directly in front of us is series of tiny dark colored sculptures mounted on a rectangular box with a glass covering them. There is a light brown wood bench directly behind this installation.
