Andras Kalman possessed an entirely different talent to that of distinguished gallerist, that is he was a fine tennis player, who competed at Wimbledon, going down one year to the great Frank Sedgman. Loosely inserted in to this catalogue is a note in green ink, in the hand of Ben Nicholson, on the verso of headed Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Club paper, folded, 'Mon July 2 Dear Kalman I wonder if you are here today? if so do look me up Court 1 Gangway 8 Row B Seat 36 green (Italian) cap + turned up nose should identify me---? best regards Ben Nicholson'.

The note creased where folded, old staple marks, dusty on one fold.
