"Dear Mr. Stenvall," the letter read. "For the opening exhibition of the season a carefully selected group of young artists will be launched at the Downtown Gallery." This letter, dated September 10, 1936, began a new chapter in the young artist's life (he was then 29). The Downtown Gallery was an important player in New York's cultural life, and its owner, Edith G. Halpert, was an American art expert well known for her perspicacity and taste.
