    In her biography, Artemis Cooper describes how Paddy’s and Balasha Cantacuzene’s possessions, including her paintings, were put into storage when their landlady and friend vacated the house they had occupied while in England. When the storage bills went unpaid, as they never received the landlady’s communications, their stored things were sold. I have been curious if any of these things have ever surfaced in the past 6-7 decades. Does anyone know?
