Overview and metadata sections
Sir William Rothenstein was an English painter who served as Principal of the Royal College of Art from 1920 to 1935.
The collection consists of 34 letters and postcards by Rothenstein to four correspondents: Henry Davray (1--1898), Elizabeth Jungmann (25--1927, 1938-1941, 1943), F. H. Sunderland (7--1918, 1920s, 1931), and E. G. Wolfe (1--1930). The majority, those addressed to Ms. Jungmann, the future wife of Max Beerbohm, discuss work, mutual friends, daily activities, travel plans, and her apparent application for English citizenship in 1939.
