Catalogue Note

'I am absolutely overjoyed to have the beautiful birthday present you have devised for me. How could you know that this is my favourite Lautrec poster: in fact, I have a copy at home and have always thought what fun it would be if and when Sir Laurence and I go to a Fancy Dress Ball we should appear as these two characters.'

Vivien Leigh, letter to John Klimo, 13th November 1953
