    Dear Katharina (if I may), I have just read your fascinating, insightful and beautifully crafted essay on Bacon and Deakin in ‘The British Art Journal’. I thought it was terrific and I learned so much from it. I’m really pleased you were able to gain access to the John Deakin Archive because it can be quite a process, now that it no longer has its own stand-alone home nor full-time curator. It may interest you to know that I am earmarked to catalogue the Vogue Library’s considerable holding of Deakin’s negatives. I attempted it as a much younger man in 1985 when Bruce Bernard was still very active and able to supply names to forgotten faces, but it was half-hearted and had to be put to one side as other projects came up. I hope very much that you will write more about Deakin and Bacon. You, along with Martin Harrison and Jessica O’Donnell, have a gift for making both come vividly to life while making significant academic contributions — in my experience that’s a rarity! With all best wishes, Robin Muir
