Alfred Leslie was one of the New York artists invited to contribute original compositions in homage to poet Frank O'Hara (1926-1966) for the "In Memory of My Feelings" project in 1967. Size: 12 x 18 inches (there is a fold in the middle and a Frank O'Hara poem incorporated into the composition). Since the full sheet is a bit large for our scanner, the photo shows most but not quite all of the composition.
