This is a drawing by Arthur Lismer of member Peter Haworth, in the persona of the Marquesa Casati (1881-1957). She was the most scandalous woman of her day and a favourite subject of prominent painters and photographers. This drawing probably records a club event occasioned by the 1934 purchase by the Art Gallery of Toronto (now AGO) of Augustus John’s portrait of Casati.
