93!

I was just stumbling over this entry in a letter by Crowley:

"Last summer I sent Nina a [illegible] to sell on commission, also my portrait of Aldous Huxley. I want these, the latter at once as he will be in town next week and I promised him that he should have it."

It is painting no. 23 in the Porza catalogue of his Berlin exhibition. Does anybody know about this painting? It's not in "The Beast in Berlin" by Churton and I don't have the "old Master" catalogue at hand, but can't remember it (that of course means nothing as can be seen by my Tattooed Woman enquiry).

Thanks in advance

Love=Law
Lutz

I was wondering whether you had a year for this?

Unfortunately not. It's from a letter to Montgomery Evans, written on January 8 on "Park Lane Hotel, Piccadily, London" stationery. Must be some time after his return from Germany, I would guess.

93 Lutz,

AC moved to the Park Lane Hotel on 5th Jan 1933.

I have no other info except that there is nothing in the 'Old Master' catalogue.

OK
