Michael and Drawing
« on: August 13, 2021, 04:12:20 AM »
From page 502 of “The Story of JMB” by Denis Mackail. This event takes place in January 1917.

“Nicholas developed chicken-pox, and then—almost at the last possible moment—passed it on to Michael, so that both were kept back from Eton, while their guardian guarded them at Campden Hill Square. Michael’s convalescence was occupied with such a violent outbreak of drawing that Barrie suddenly wondered if this were to be his line after all. George du Maurier’s grandson. Why not? He arranged for some professional instruction, and then, for the time being, the outbreak passed. But Michael was going to be something pretty remarkable sooner or later. There was never a moment’s doubt of that.”
