Lot 910: ALS in pencil, signed "Cecil," one page both sides, 5.75 x 7.5, Shepheard's Hotel letterhead, May 1942. Letter to Alice, in part: "You won't realize it was a thrill for me to take these little snapshots of you. I have taken so many thousands! But you don't know what a favorite you have always been of mine…when I knew every detail of your face & drew it in every disguise you ever wore. It made me suddenly remember a photograph of you in a field of corn…I have sent the two marked V to 'Vogue.'" Beaton has added two sketches of a female face below his signature. In fine condition, with central horizontal and vertical folds (both passing through small portions of the signature), and some light creasing. The first original art we have seen from the award-winning photographer. RR Auction's Fine Autographs and Artifacts Auction 458 Wednesday, 12th August 2015 Estimate: $800-1000
