2. James Rennell Rodd
James Rennell Rodd (1858-1941), 1st Baron Rennell, poet and diplomat [more]. Rodd was then third secretary at the British Embassy in Berlin. He was about depart for Athens but hoped to meet JW en route (#05215).
JW had sent a large group of works to the 3rd Internationale Kunst-Austellung, Munich, 1888, which opened in July - thirteen oils, twenty watercolours, seven pastels and thirty etchings. Amongst the oils was Arrangement in Black: La Dame au brodequin jaune - Portrait of Lady Archibald Campbell (YMSM 242). He objected to being awarded a second-class medal by the exhibition committee, and there was a suggestion that he should go there to address the matter.
