Rebay, Hilla. DANCING COUPLE (NOEL COWARD AND GERTRUDE LAWRENCE?). Pencil on paper, not dated, but likely 1930-1931. Signed in pencil lower left.12 3/4 x 8 5/8 inches. Hansomely framed to 19 x 15 1/2 inches.
The subjects of the drawing bear a strong resemblance to Gertrude Lawrence and Noel Coward, who starred together in his play Private Lives in 1930 (London) and 1931 (New York). Rebay was in London in 1930 with the Guggenheims and back in New York in 1931, so it is not unlikely that she would have seen the play.
