Object History

Vivien Leigh, letter to John Klimo, 13 November 1953
“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.”
