1981 - Willem de Kooning Loft, Ward Bennet, Michael Graves, Philip Johnson &. NYC
“DSN” guest in the NYC Loft of Willem de Kooning and writes “No Crouching in the Gallery”, sees “Woman I” MoMa. No-where to sit in the gallery so he crouched down, to study the painting. The guard approached, excuse me, there is no crouching in the gallery. He went home to peruse through the fifty paintings up close. Sketches in the “WdeK” loft by David Shaw Nicholls, pen on paper.
In The Dakota, CPW. NYC, “DSN” Re-connects with Ward Bennet after their initial meeting at “Charles Rennie Mackintosh” Appreciation Society Exhibition/Asflexi Launch in Glasgow. Michael Graves provided invaluable connections to know Philip Johnson, Larry Cadwallader(Knoll) and George Nelson. Went for one week, but stayed for one month.
Totally loved New York City and destined to return.
