Footnotes

  • Provenance
    Esther Pissarro (The Tree, River Walk and the print), 1949-50
    Sir Edward Sackville-West (French Landscape), 1965
    Eardley Knollys, from whom acquired by the present owner
    Private Collection, U.K.

    Eardley Knollys was an important figure in the after-life of Lucien Pissarro, as he was instrumental in guiding the contents of his studio to the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford, after the National Trust (which he represented) had turned down the idea of making the Brook a Pissarro Museum, as Esther Pissarro had intended. The Ashmolean Museum has correspondence between Knollys and Mrs Pissarro, including one letter dated 30 December 1949 in which she says 'I send you as a New Years Card a print you might like to have, a CP engraved by Lucien', which is thought to be the print in this lot. On 6 May 1950, she gave him 'two little sketches', thought to be two of the drawings offered here.

    We are grateful to Colin Harrison for his assistance in cataloguing this lot.
