Bernard Dunstan RA NEAC (1920-2017) Studies of Artist's Wife in a Nightdress

Provenance: label and paperwork for Agnews 1997, with a letter to the purchaser from the artist providing context regarding the sketch

Dated 4th October, envelope stamped 06/10/1997

'Dear Mr Beale,

Thanks for your letter, I'm so glad you liked the little drawing. Date- very difficult to say because I havent any record of it. Stupid really- I always photograph paintings, less seldom drawings, and there's no reason why not- I often like them better! At a rough guess I'd say sometime in the '80s, the model is my wife. I ____ do a drawing of her early morning. This is two of these, with a ____ my postal address, which I use occasionally. ___ its ___ a sketch for ___ just for the sake of it. Best Wishes, Bernard Dunstan.

P.S. I suppose you couldn't take a photo of it for me? Don't go to any trouble- I don't mean anything professional- just something for record purposes'
