Acquisition file

Date 21 Jul-23 Oct 1967

Correspondence between Philip Hendy and Katia Granoff (of the Katia Granoff Gallery) regarding the potential acquisition. Hendy explains that the picture will need to be seen alongside 'Nirvana Jaune' before a decision can be made, as the two pictures will be exhibited on the same wall in the Gallery. After this inspection has been completed by the Trustees it is decided to purchase the picture, Hendy writes to Granoff confirming the Gallery's intention to buy the work for £58,000 on 6 October 1967. Additional correspondence detailing arrangements for transporting the picture from France.
