Original watercolor of Florence Beerbohm

1913. Original drawing in pencil and watercolor on paper. Signed and dated "Max 1913" in pencil. An evocative and affectionate image of Max’s American wife, the actress Florence Kahn, showing her Pre-Raphaelite-like red hair and dress blown by a breeze. Fewer than a dozen “straight” portraits of Florence by Max and known. Virtually all derive from the collection of the publisher, bookseller, and broadcaster Douglas Cleverdon, who sold it to the American bookseller Franklin Gilliam; it later belonged to Marcia McGhee Carter, the co-founder (with Larry McMurtry) of the Booked Up bookshop and then passed into the collection of the Beerbohm bibliographer and collector, Mark Samuels Lasner. In fine condition. 34 x 23 cm. ORIG/011216.
