Harold Gilman Letter to Lucien Pissarro c.May 1911
1 of 3
You will have heard from Manson our most noble & honourable secretary that the Camden Town Group opens at Carfax on 14th (private view) of June. The sending in days are the Friday & Saturday before that. There will be room for about four pictures each but it depends on the sizes. Clifton thinks it a good plan for us to let him have a few others [end of p.1] not to be hung but brought out to be shewn. If you are not back in time if you will let me know what pictures you want sent I will see that all is done. Sickert is coming back to Fitzroy Street you will be glad to hear. Gore is to be president of the new society. This will be a good way of avoiding meetings – at any rate for the present – to settle small details such [end of p.2] as how is to hang the pictures. Two or three men will be quite enough. It is important to find a bigger gallery for the autumn now because we shall all be away till too late probably & all the galleries will be engaged.
Just tell me anything you want done about your pictures.
