Letter from Charles Gerald Agnew to Colin Agnew
|Date||17 Dec 1924|
Copy record of a letter (typed and handwritten) from Charles Gerald Agnew to Colin Agnew regarding discussions he has had with Lord Northampton for a proposed Old Masters exhibition, to be organised by Charles Gerald and Colin Agnew in aid of the Royal Northern Hospital in London. Colin Agnew is asked to write or cable his agreement and comments on the proposal.
Charles Gerald states that he has a serious buyer but is very short of Turner drawings, requesting that Colin send on any he can spare. He also notes that "[Arthur Joseph] Sulley is very hungry" but he has nothing for him, asking if Colin can think of anything and that he be kept posted on the "Bellini Allegory."
See NGA27/11/1/177 for further correspondence regarding the Royal Northern Hospital exhibition.
