Letter from Isabel Pulteney - 7 February 1919

 

Letter from Isabel Pulteney, dated 7 February 1919, seeking advice about a light fitting for her brother's portrait

Dear Mr. de László
The picture has been hung and the electric light fixed. I don't know whether it is because the metal is new, but it looks

 

to me aggressively large for the picture. I wish some time you could come and look at it, or send me a measurement of what the right size should be.
Yrs. sincerely
Isabel Pulteney.
