Going bananas on Nancy Mitford. Well, only for this week.

  1. Interesting portrait, but dare I say it: she looks a little constipated?!

  2. I had to look up the artist. Well connected - he was a landscape architect and designed an Italian style garden in the Chateau de Brantes, Avignon etc. Interesting!

  3. What a very thin woman she must have been!

  6. A very interesting study. I believe she looks lonely and perhaps a little down. Thanks for sharing.

  7. She looks wary in this portrait, not very flattering is it?

  8. So gorge - I actually really like this portrait but I'm not exactly sure why...

  9. She continues to be hopelessly enigmatic. Love this portrait. And between you and Little Augury, I'm hooked too. Just ordered the boxed set from Heywood Hill.

  10. Stunning. I just came across it in black and white in Mary Lovell's biography of the sisters. Thank you for having it in colour.
