« Tales of the Eighties: “Thronging Pilgrims…” [by Alan Ziegler] | Main | Apocalyptic Vision: Yeats's "The Second Coming" [by David Lehman] »

July 24, 2015


I have 3 framed B&W prints by Juan Oliver in my home, taken from a portfolio acquired in Montreal 40 years ago. The rest of the prints are long ago sold. The prints are titled 'Interlude', 'San Francisco de Quito', and 'Burlesque'. All are signed in pencil.

If you are interested in seeing them, please reply to this via email:

My father, Armando Zegri, was a close friend of your grandfather, both in Chile and in New York. I have a zerox of your grandfather's signature in the guest book of my father's Cafe Latino in Greenwich Village. Your grandfather also designed sets for Helen Tamiris, a modern dancer with whom my father lived for several years. Your grandfather also made a drawing of dancers that my father put on the cover of the menu from the Chilean Pavilion at the 1939 World's Fair. My father was manager of the restaurant. Let me know if you'd like to see any of this.

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark
