Abstract:

Records the trip that Thomas Sully and Blanche took to London. The two volumes include copies of 14 letters from each of the two to their family in Philadelphia. The letterbooks were compiled by Jane Sully, another of Thomas Sully's daughters; the original letters have apparently been lost. Each letter is lengthy and full of detail about where the Sullys lived in London; encounters with the British art establishment of the 1830s and with other American artists; dining with members of the Audubon family; a trip to France; portrait commissions, including the one negotiated with Queen Victoria; viewing art exhibitions; the experiences of a young woman abroad for the first time; and domestic considerations concerning clothing and the household routine.

Also included is a plan of the rooms of the house on Great Marlborough St. in London, where Sully and Blanche stayed in 1838.
