Dear Sirs:

We have received a request for a photograph of Renoir's "Venus holding an apple" which appeared in a book on Renoir published by your firm in 1950. The plate appears on page 25 and is a photograph of a sculpture from the collection of Jacques Seligman & Co.

Please advise if it is possible to secure a photograph of this subject, which has been requested by Public Relations Associates Limited, 67 Brook Street, London W.1.

Your attention to this matter would be appreciated.

Sincerely yours,
