Their Majesties' Court by Sir John Lavery
Reproduction of a painting by Sir John Lavery in The Sphere, of a painting which is now lost showing the scene of dazzling splendour in the ball room at Buckingham Palace during a court presentation in 1931. Lavery made studies of many famous socialites for this painting including Lady Georgina Curzon, Miss Margaret Whigham (later Duchess of Argyll), Miss Diana Churchill, Miss Baba Beaton and Lady Ponsonby. The combined scale and detail in the picture drew much comment when it was exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1932. Accompanying sketches were shown at Colgnaghi's gallery in the same year and the main picture was also seen in Paris. Its whereabouts now is unknown. Date: 1935
