Archive reference number NG68/26/4

Letter from Lansdowne to Poynter

Date 30 Jan 1904

Lansdowne regrets that he can not support the application to the Treasury for funds towards the acquisition of the Titian and the Van Dyck. The price of the Titian seems enormous, regardless of how important the picture is claimed to be. The Van Dyck features one figure that Landowne considers to be indifferently painted.
