This tablet has been placed here to commemorate the acquisition
by the City of Auckland of the Lindauer Collection of Paintings,
which was presented to the Auckland Belgian Relief Committee by
H.E.Partridge, Esq., and for which the sum of £10,000 was collected
by subscription in the Auckland Province. With this amount the
pictures were bought and presented to the City, the purchase money
being given to the Belgian Fund, May 1915.
- Implies P. gave pictures to Belgian R. Com absolutely and that
then the City bought them for £10,000
- Also omits credit due to P. for making the collection
- It is desirable to clearly indicate that their value consists
in their representation of M. customs - not as works of art.
