BURNE-JONES, Sir Philip, second baronet (1861-1926). Artist.
Pencil drawing on 8vo sheet of writing paper, 170 Holland Park Avenue, June 1911 (in ink), inscribed 'haste & my thanks'. The drawing was sent to Celia Levetus (1874-1936), a respected member of the Birmingham School of illustrators, and depicts a running figure with a 'fat body', holding cards, missing a shoe and losing a sock.

The picture presumably illustrates an 'in joke', and it might be amusing to try to winkle it out.

Provenance: by descent through the family.
