Although I didn't know her, I feel as if I did.  Tony Duquette was the last great protege of Elsie de Wolfe, Lady Mendl who is shown here in the bedroom of her Parisian penthouse on the Avenue d'Iena which I understand is now run as a hotel.  I have just completed a novel of historic fiction with my writing parner Flynn Kuhnert about the last ten years of Elsie de Wolfe's life and the first ten years of Tony Duquette's  carreer.  We are hoping for its publication this fall.  HW
