Siam: Kenneth on the Acquisition of Two Paintings from Mrs. Yipintsoi


Kenneth tells of two paintings he acquired from Mrs. Yipintsoi. He found her painting outside and recognized her style of painting as reminiscent of Matisse. He told her this, and recommended she go to Paris and study with him. Years later, he found out she had studied in Paris. At this meeting, she requested he take a couple paintings and he obliged.
