Max Keezer, long famous as a clothier, agreed last night to the rumor that he has set up as an art connoisseur with an original Whistler etching to his credit.
Mr. Keezer was forced quite by accident to be ranked among patrons of the beaux arts, when he purchased the estate of the late Gilmore Clapp. When the estate came to Keezer there were some pictures in it, among them the Whistler etching.
Mr. Keezer answered questions concerning his purchase, saying, "Yes, I bought an estate...Yes, there were some pictures, some etchings too...What are they? Oh, I can't tell about them...Well, one had a yacht...Oh, I don't know...Six or eight of them...Oh, yes, good pictures, the best...Come and see them at my store some time."
