Content Description

He is grateful for the volume of The Magazine of Art. He is glad to say that for once the weather is helping him ready his pictures for the Royal Academy. Christie's are building a new front to their building and have a large sale of old clothes. Many artists were there buying up the costumes of old dandies. Harry Furniss is to have an exhibition in the Fine Art galleries where the public will be able to buy examples of work by "this facile and clever draughtsman". He has heard that Quilter and MacColl have taken to painting. Comments briefly on a few of this year's [summer exhibition] pictures, including works by Leighton, Swan and himself. Discusses the depressed condition of the picture market, strongly stating that it is due to over supply. He is amazed at the quality of recent photographic reproduction techniques. His little Gladys has been ill with a cold.
