Thanks, Brutus - this is all very helpful!
I'll do as you suggest.
All best wishes,

My name is Daria and I am a scholar of German Literature. I have just completed a book about German-speaking exiles in London in the early 1930s, which will be published by Bloomsbury next year. The first chapter of the book is about the friendship between Barrie and the Austrian actress Elisabeth Bergner. I'm now in the process of sourcing images from copyright holders, but I'm having trouble finding the copyright owners of the Peter Scott portrait of Barrie (1934) and of three photographs showing JMB and Bergner in Cortina d'Ampezzo in 1935.

On this website, I found some old posts about the Scott portrait, of which Lord Kennet's son, Thoby Young, might know something. But his - and Barrie's - old house, Leinster Corner, has been sold, so I'm not sure where the portrait would be now and I don't know how to contact Thoby Young.

As for the photographs, which are printed in Bergner's Autobiography (Munich, 1978), I can't find them anywhere online or at the Elisabeth Bergner Archive in Berlin.

Can anyone help?

Many thanks in advance!
