Given to the Garrick Club by Donald Sinden. Agreed and accepted with thanks by the Works of Art committee on October 31st 2006.
Donald Sinden played the role of Lord Foppington in Trevor Nun's production of 'The Relapse' for the RSC in 1967. He is pictured here, seated, gesturing to the audience, delicately balancing his cane. His costume synonymous with those of a 'Fop', a name for someone overly concerned with fashion and appearence.
