Lady Ottoline Morrell Album Collection, Album 9, 1926-31

110 Portraits in set

Twelve vellum-covered albums containing nearly 4,000 captioned snapshots with a similar number of loose prints, original negatives and formal studio portraits of herself and family. Morrell's own intimate snapshot portraits, taken over a thirty-year period, offer a unique insight into the leading literary and artistic figures of the early twentieth century who benefited from her generous support and hospitality.
