From a group of about forty drawings, nine of which were in the collection of Iolo Anuerin Williams (1890–1962) and offered for sale by his family at Sotheby’s on 25 November 2004, lot 134, where they did not sell. Eighteen drawings were sold from Appleby Brothers, ca. 1958, and entered the collection of Ian Fleming-Williams; these were sold at Christie’s South Kensington on 21 July 2015, lot 463 (information about this lot was kindly communicated by Susan Sloman). Three further examples are in the Britten-Pears Library at Aldeburgh, Suffolk, and one at the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford.
