Description: In this fascinating typed letter signed, O’Keeffe provides insight into the politics and protocols of the art marketplace. She writes, in part, to disgraced Madison Avenue gallery owner Andrew Crispo: “…I was in New York for a short time recently, and I saw Betty Parsons. I have always liked her and she tells me she never received a commission on the picture you bought from me. If you remember, as you were wrapping the painting when you were leaving you said to me, ‘What shall we do about Betty?’ and I said that was your affair. I don’t know many of the dealers anymore, so if anyone else had written me asking me to see you I probably wouldn’t have answered them at all, or would have said no. I think something should be done about her.”
