Cute little rich girl with a big doll. I know of some museums that would love to be able to reach through time to get that doll.

@Nokomarie, Can you imagine?! It'd be great if one turned up at the auction house.

@Retro, Luckily in this case, no!

I've never seen this drawing before - what a charmer! Love how the little girl's in "conversation" with her doll, love how Lawrence obviously had fun drawing the doll's face, love the girl's clothes and esp. her little red shoe...thanks so much for sharing. :)
