I am now pretty much confined to bed, and have to recognize this as my future.  It is difficult even to get me out of bed, as happened this morning when they needed to change the bed--unless supported by at least two people I’m going to collapse onto the floor, since I can’t stand any more, much less walk.  So I am only an inert being able to think and talk but not do much else. 
 
Julia White was here several days ago, and I proposed to her a Chang Ta-ch’ien exhibition, which I hope we can carry out.  It would include his forgeries as well as paintings acknowledged as by him.  Those of you who own works by him, either signed by him or attributable to him, are invited to send information about them.
 
The exhibition should be very interesting indeed, since he was a more versatile and attractive figure than van Meegeren.  Those of you who are interested can look at previous blogs, several of which were about him.
 
I am happy to receive visitors, who can sit by my bedside and talk.  Especially people who I’ve known in the past. If you find yourself in the Bay Area, email me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. . My assistant will make an arrangement for you to come by some time during the day, not too early in the morning.
