summer in Venice

Sand & SEA


Ottoline with Augustus John

she wrote in her Memoirs...
ITALY has ever been in my Imagination the Land of My Freedom...As I look back on the years that followed IT, and trace My Wanderings, I see I was more in ITALY than in ENGLAND.

Ottoline documented her life in photographs housed in scrapbooks, see more-and these originals at the NPG, HERE.
