RICHMOND, Sir William Blake. 19900



Autograph Letter Signed, to “My dear Crane” [probably Walter Crane], thanking him for “the most valuable and lovely gift”, praising his work. 2 pp. 7 x 4 inches, fine. Undated. Sir William Blake Richmond (1843-1921), English portrait and mythological painter. “From page to page, fancy is led on, one design is the more beautiful than the previous one, more precious in sentiment and more lively in execution. While such poetic work is being done as your always is, and especially this your latest publication, we cannot dare say that the more imaginative side of our delightful art has no vitality.”
