Dargis enjoyed sending handpainted holiday cards. In addition to the customary expression of season’s greetings, this tradition also served as a public relations tool, reminding his friends and patrons of his steady supply of prints and paintings. Gertrude Herdle Moore, MAG’s second director, was an ardent supporter of Dargis’s work during his time in Rochester, so it is not surprising that the inscription on this back of this painting says Mrs. G. Moore Seasons Greetings- A.L. Dargis-.
