[c.1960s-1970s] 29 photographs, one in colour, one with hand colour. 15 negatives. 290 x 230mm (11½ x 9"). 0.45kg. . English. Very good; some slight wear to edges of photographs, occasional creases, occasional pencil notations, fresh and clear images.
A number of photographs and negatives collected together by Sacheverell Sitwell's youngest son Francis. The images are loose, several inserted in envelopes addressed to Francis. Some are press photographs (Daily Express, Sunday Telegraph, etc.), some appear to be personal snapshots and some are prints of earlier photographs. The majority of the images include Sacheverell. One is of him as a young man, another appears to show his mother Ida with an infant child, there are several of him with his wife Georgia, and there is a portrait photograph by Gordon Anthony. Edith Sitwell appears in a photograph and negative of Tchelitchev's full-length portrait, in a classic portrait photograph, and as part of a trio with her two brothers. There are photos of Renishaw Hall, Weston Hall and Castello Di Montegufoni, the Sitwell family home in Tuscany. Present is an amusing souvenir photograph of Sacheverell and Georgia with another couple against a bright neon hand-coloured backdrop of Arabic buildings.
