Autograph letter signed (ÒGÓ) from arist Graham Sutherland to Felix H. Man (ÒDear HansÓ) about sitting for photographs, his new show, the Festival of Britain, and a ÓsystemÓ for winning at roulette. In the original envelope (stamped and postmarked), Trottiscliffe, 20 March 1950. ÒIÕm at your service whenever you like for extra photographs . . . IÕm only so sad that we shanÕt be in France . . . for you to take the extra ones there. The light & general atmosphere is so much more exciting.Ó His show is to be in October, then he has to work on his show for the US. ÒDuring the summer & spring I shall be working on a large painting for the Festival of Britain 1951 & I hope at last to pin down Beaverbrook for sittings for the portrait the Daily Express has commissioned.Ó The second half of the letter is devoted to detailed explanation of his (quite complicated) ÒsystemÓ for winning at the roulette wheel, deployed with Òa good deal of successÓ at Monte Carlo and San Remo. The photojournalist Felix H. Man (n Hans Felix Sigismund Baumann, 1893Ð 1985) took numerous photographs of Graham Vivian Sutherland (1903Ð1980), photographing him up a ladder at the Tate in 1951 working on The Origins of the Land (for the ÒLand of BritainÓ pavilion at the Festival of Britain; now in the Tate), snapping the two of them in the mirror with Winston Churchill at Chartwell in 1954; later they collaborated on Graham Sutherland: das graphische Werk 1922Ð1970 (1970). SutherlandÕs 1952 portrait of Lord Beaverbrook went to the National Portrait Gallery. From the collection of Jonathan Gili; bought from Henry Bristow, July 1985. Later letters from Sutherland to Man are held at Pennsylvania State University. Codice inventario libreria 14959J
