THE GOUPIL GALLERY
BOUSSOD, VALADON & CO.
116 & 117, NEW BOND STREET. W.
TELEGRAMS, - BOUSSOD, LONDON.
23 March 1892.
We have been having a lot of visitors to the Exhibition & in almost every case the pictures are "admired". Many doubtless say they are pleased & understand little enough of the matter, but all round the public are decidedly appreciative
[p. 2] The visitors have been from Royal Princesses to Royal Academicians. The princesses (Duchess of Edinburgh & her two daughters) said they "did not understand them one bit". Mr Burne Jones came[,] paid his 1/- & was here quite one hour - He is a bigger minded man that [sic] one would have thought. He examined every picture & had a long talk with Walter Sickert who will doubtless tell you what he said.
Artists & students come in crowds before 11 am & stop for hours.
[p. 3] We are rather curious about the Jour réservé on Friday - at 2/6!
There are many press notices. Shall we send them to you or are you having them?
A serious business question. One man wants to know if £400 or £450 would buy Madame Reveillons 'Music Room.' We wired to her & she replies consult you. Will you kindly think [p. 4] over the matter for her & say what your idea is. Our man will not pay more than £450 we fear -
No other offers of a serious kind up to the present.
