"Once I painted a big watercolour of five girls ski-ing on the practice slopes of Flims in the Engadine. One girl posed for all five.
Long years after, when my one-time model had become a distinguished physician's wife, her lawyer-brother saw the picture in the house.
He peered closely at it, placed a forefinger over one of the figures, turned to his sister and said rather accusingly, 'That's you'.
'Yes', she replied, 'that's me. They're all me'.
'Don't be a fool', said the big lawyer-brother, how could they be?'

Should you wish to explore the area in France that Sir William spent so much of his time this holiday house in the Dordogne see here can provide
a beautiful experience for those who enjoy the countryside and the many towns and villages of great character.
