Bright and decorative Illustrated Autograph Letter Signed, "Stephen." "Where are you? Your Balm is so very nice new - you will be jealous - When will you come out here? Juliet...does not want to see my Roses. Love to you, Stephen." On pink printed address stationery, Tennant wrote to a neighbor who was a friend of photographer and designer Cecil Beaton. Beaton and Tennant belonged to an upper class social set of the 1920's and 30's called "Bright Young People," popularized in Evelyn Waugh's novel, "Brideshead Revisited." The 8 x 10 inch artwork is drawn with water color and outlined in ink. Tennant's floral decoration echoes the reference to the roses of his garden and is similar to his water color and ink drawing, "The Carthganian Rose." The letter measures 8 x 10 inches and floats on a dark gray mat overlaid with a white mat, framed in black satin finished wood, matted and framed in museum quality materials, framed in 5/8/inch black satin wood. Frame measures 15 ½ x 17 3/4. (Inventory #: 4649)
