Enjoying the Hitchens's warm hospitality and friendship, Kar visited on numerous occasions, often with her assistant John Cox, taking portraits of the family. Following this photograph taken in August 1954, Mollie Hitchens wrote to Kar: 'Your photos arrived safely this morning and we really are highly delighted with them'.
