In 1962, when I was 19, my father (Francis Minturn Sedgwick) sent me to the Silver Hill mental institution in Connecticut. I started to make drawings there. Mostly small. Mostly of animals.
I can’t find my drawings any more. And I’d really like to see them again. Here’s one of a horse, preserved because it was on my apartment wall in New York City when a magazine photoshoot was done.
If I can find any more, I’ll add them here.
And if YOU know where any of my drawings might be, please LMK in the comments below!
