Artist's Resale Right ("Droit de Suite"). Artist's Resale Right Regulations 2006 apply to this lot, the buyer agrees to pay us an amount equal to the resale royalty provided for in those Regulations, and we undertake to the buyer to pay such amount to the artist's collection agent.

Lot Essay

This drawing was probably executed in Paris where Dorelia was living in 1907 and where Augustus's wife, Ida, died in March that year. Dorelia stayed on in France until the autumn. 

We are very grateful to Rebecca John for her assistance in preparing this catalogue entry.
