Entre nous signed 'Hassall' (lower right) pen and ink with watercolour and bodycolour 32 x 22cm (12 5/8 x 8 11/16in).
The present lot refers to the mysterious 'Entre Nous' club. Hassall painted another scene entited 'Entre Nous' which depicts Wilfred Vincent Brooks, a prominent London lithographer and member of the Eccentric Club. Behind Brooks, Hassall depicted a number of drawings relating to the notion of 'Entre Nous' and one of these drawings shows the present lot. A number of menus from Entre Nouse Club Committee luncheons exist, one of which accompanies this lot. The mystery of the 'Entre Nous' has yet to be solved.
