Venice. The list of sales also includes works by
Messrs. J. Lavery, R. Anning Bell, Cecil Rea,
W. Lee Hankey, W. Llewellyn, Terrick Williams,
A. Ludovici, Fred Stratton, A. K. Brown, Stuart
Park, and J. G. Laing, all acquired for private
collections; sculpture by Sir George Frampton,
R.A., Alfred Drury, A.R.A., andF. Derwent Wood,
A.R.A. elect; and etchings by Sir H. Seymour
Haden, Messrs. Frank Brangwyn, A.R.A., Hedley
Fitton, E. M. Synge, and Miss C. M. Nichols.

Pottery Company, and the Ruskin Pottery and
Enamel Works were very successful.

of Ettore Tito and Guglielmo Ciardi, to both
of whom special rooms were assigned, is shown
by the large number of paintings by them which
appear in the list.

English-born mother. On her mother’s side she is
a descendant of Joseph Strutt, who won the Gold
Medal for Historical Painting a hundred and forty
years ago, and in this connection another interest-
