Property Received Books
Property Received Books detail property owned by clients (pictures, drawings, engravings etc.) received by Agnew's. Entries are indexed by the owner of the artwork and record the following information:
- Date received ][ Owner ][ Waiting Order number ][ Description/medium ][ Artist ][ Title ][ Value ][ Remarks ][ How disposed of (including date)
Entries may also record the owner's address, and exhibition or auction lot references, and folios recording property owned by a particular individual, or loaned to exhibitions (for example, Burlington X-Ray Exhibition, 1969; Turner Loan Exhibition, 1967) are found at the end of some volumes. Finally, versions of some entries may also be found within the 'Received' pages of the Goods Received & Delivered Books at NGA27/8.
