A letter from Frank Leney, Curator at Castle Museum in Norwich, to Sydney Kitson
Letter notifying Kitson that the art gallery had recently received a Cotman water colour "A Castle in Normandy"
Frank Leney Castle Museum.
TELEPHONE N0.1401 Ex.57. 2nd. April. 1935
Dear Mr. Kitson,
You will I know be very pleased to hear that the Art Gallery has just received the gift of a beautifully fresh Cotman water colour drawing. The subject is "A Castle in Normandy" and it is a glorious riot of blue and yellow. The drawing itself was mounted on a very poor piece of card which has now been removed but I thought it might interest you to know that the number 13 appears in the corner of the mount also the sum 4 Gs.
Sydney D. Kitson, Esq.
