About this Item

This brief letter from Sir Edward John Poynter shows that he was rather casual about the collection of rent as a landlord, and only marginally less so about payment as a tenant. He writes, "Dear Sir, Many thanks for your note. I had a vague idea that I had received another payment, but as I do not always remember to mark in my book where the sums I receive come from, I could not find any but the 100 pounds in '79 and the 200 pounds in '81. Please correct my letter accordingly. I cannot get from Mr. Boehm the exact rent I am to pay for the use of his studio. He promised again to let me have it today, but I suppose he has again forgotten it. Yrs faithfully, Edward J. Poynter" The studio space he refers to in this letter is one he rented from sculptor and fellow Royal Academician Joseph Edgar Boehm in Onslow Square, where Poynter worked for many years. The letter is written on three pages of a single sheet of stationery with Poynter's "28 Albert Gate, S.W." London address at the top right of the first page. The signature, found halfway down the third page, is fairly large and quite clear. The stationery measures 6" x 7 3/4" when unfolded. Sir Edward John Poynter (1836-1919) was a well-regarded British artist, best known for his historical and mythological paintings. He was also a university professor, Director of the National Gallery, and President of the Royal Academy. There are some partially-erased pencil notations about the letter and three short lines of red ink in the top blank margin of the first page, and one additional pencil notation of Poynter's name on the blank fourth page. Otherwise in excellent condition. Bookseller Inventory # A00444
