ABOUT PEOPLE
NOTES FROM LONDON
(From Our Own Correspondent.) LONDON, 1st July.
An "at home" of New Zealand interest was given at 22, Yeoman's-row, , Brompton-road, on Wednesday by Mr. Sydney W. White, who has numerous relatives in the Dominion. Mr. White's father, Mr. John H. White, of Kimbolton, Feilding, migrated to New Zealand seventeen years ago, and Mr. Harold Temple White, of Feilding, is a brother. Mr. Sydney White also has three uncles in the Taranaki district, so that although he himself has never visited New Zealand, yet his family interests are largely centred there. Mr. White did not accompany his father seventeen years ago because he wished to study art, and in the interval he has made a name for himself as a very successful painter of portraiture in oils. Some of his portraits have been hung in the Royal Academy, and among his sitters may be mentioned Mrs. Hunger-Blair, who, of course, is a New Zealander. The immediate reason for the "at home" was to show portraits of the Viscountess Garnock, the Lord and Lady Doramore, Mr. and Mrs. Wickham-Boynton, Mr. Alex. Scott-Gatty, and others. During the afternoon there was a constant stream of visitors at Mr. White's studio, and the universal opinion was that the likenesses were excellent. Mr. White is anxious, to go to New Zealand, and he may do so at an early date.
