A Memorable Connection

I found the document below an interesting point in time. Michael Morris receives written permission from Natacha Rambova's former love and financĂ©, Svetoslav Roerich, to reproduce the painting of her on the back cover of Madam Valentino. It is, in a way, a direct connection between Michael Morris and his great subject and although Svetoslav was a very elderly gentleman at the time, he lived long enough to grant the permission. 

There are some interesting videos of the elderly "Svetie" on Youtube; a fascinating and an iconic life.
