Ronald Searle Welcomes Midge Home

This undated piece was made by Ronald Searle for Midge Locke when she returned home after a hospital stay. Midge was the wife of John Locke, Searle's North American agent, and their home, which was also John Locke's place of business, was located in Manhattan on East 76th Street. The drawing features two of Searle's devoted cats. It is signed by Searle and by his wife Monica, perhaps in the late 1980's or 1990's. 

Note:  If you haven't seen Searle's cats before, this is is a good place to start.

By the way, if you've been thinking of leaving your body to science, perhaps you should check out my previous Searle post.
