McBean’s rapidly growing collection of bisque bathing-beauty dolls make up a party scene as the photographer tries to read his Christmas greetings book. A Roy Hobdell painting in his collection, which was also used as a background in his 1947 portrait of Constance Cummings, helps set the fantasy scene.
