14 September 1939, just over a week after war was declared
We motored up to London with ‘Antwerp’ and ‘Ouse at York’ to the Redfern Gallery. Nan Kivell didn’t think the former suitable for the Tate Gallery. So wants me to do another! and have my show in November as "no one else is having one” (had been scheduled for December)
As far as we can tell "another" Antwerp was never painted and it is the one mentioned that the Tate bought for their collection.
