On This Day in 1936, Arthur Dove noted details about the weather in his diary. Diaries may provide a valuable record of working methods, or in some cases, the conceptual development of a particular work of art. Many of Dove’s paintings illustrate his interest in natural phenomena. 
This diary is currently on view in our exhibition "A Day in the Life: Artists’ Diaries from the Archives of American Art."
For more on Dove’s diaries and his paintings, read Jennifer Stettler Parson’s essay, "Absence and Presence: Arthur Dove’s Paintings ‘From the Radio’" on our website.
