    'I was left the silver gelatin print of the surrealist draped model as part of my father's inheritance following his death in 1969. The picture was taken in my father's rue Delambre studio in 1938. It appeared in Coronet and other magazines in his lifetime and was selected by him in the 1960's as one of his 'Hundred Best' images.'
