TitleLetter from Lawrence Alma-Tadema to George Henschel
Extent1 item
DescriptionWritten from Townshend House, North Gate, Regents Park, N.W., dated 30 March. Alma-Tadema thanks Henschel for his letter, reflecting: '[...] the wish to live a little more amongst ones brethren must weigh heavy sometimes [...] a beloved wife & success is all one can wish for the rest one arranges as well as one can [...]'. He asks if Henschel saw an exhibit in Boston and advises him to meet various people in New York: the Millets, Mr Abbey, art collector Mr Vanderbilt, and Mr Hank, proprietor of the Windsor Hotel, for whom he is painting Anthony and Cleopatra. He thanks Henschel for sending a portrait of Wilde, commenting: 'I too wonder what the London people will do with him when he returns'. He writes: 'My work seems to become more & more difficult perhaps I want it more complete'. He promises to send photos of his latest works. He has not had time to sit for his portrait. He asks if he can exhibit Henschel's portrait in Paris.
