For many years now. Thank God. I got the idea of doing
that about four years, I think it was the fourth year.
It was largely inspired by Rosalind Russell originally, wasn't it?
Well, no, it was largely because I hate the cold of this
part of the world, don't you? I just really get tired of it.
I remember you went to Nassau a couple of times.
Yes. But this year, no, I went to Palm Beach instead, to
visit my friends, the Wrightsmans.
When did you go there?
In January. After I got over the shingles, I made a deal
with Frank Lloyd to sell my French Impressionist paintings.
All of them?
Well, a great many of them. Not all, but a great many.
All the Renoirs?
Yes. For the most colossal price you could imagine. Maybe,
I think now maybe I didn't get enough, but compared with what was
paid for them, it was colossal.
Did you sell the Van Gohs too?
Yes, I sold them.
“The White Roses”?
