Mortimer Luddington Menpes (1860-1938), artist [more]. He was not elected at this date; see also JW's letter to him later in the spring conveying the news of a further failed election attempt (#10001). However Menpes was eventually elected to the Hogarth (see #10031).
JW sent a sketch of Paintings for exhibition (M.910) which was reproduced in the catalogue for the first exhibition of Les XX. He had also written to Deschamps on 17 January (#07911) requesting that the titles to his paintings be recorded precisely in the catalogue.
