5. Griffiths v Whistler
This relates to JW's dispute with Capt. Edward Clifton Griffith, gallery landlord [more], over the Flemish Gallery which JW had leased from Griffith for a year in January 1874 in order to show his works (Mr Whistler's Exhibition, Flemish Gallery, Pall Mall, London, 1874). The dispute centred on JW's redecoration of the gallery; Griffith maintained that JW was liable for the reinstatement of the entire original decorative scheme (E. C. Griffith to JW, #12154). On 29 January 1875 Griffith took legal proceedings against JW, claiming back rent and costs of repair to the gallery (E. C. Griffith to JW, #12140). See also other correspondence between JW and E. C. Griffith between 20 and 30 January 1875 (#01603, #11441, #11442, #11444, #11445, #12145, #12148, #12154, #12165).
