The exhibition held at the October Gallery in London in April 1998 featured over forty of Aleister Crowley’s works and two by Frieda Harris.
Lot n. 14 in this catalogue (Royal Leamington SPA 1875-1947 Hastings) was sold at a Christie’s auction in 2016. The painting was owned by Cecil Williamson, a Neopagan Witch and founder of the Witchcraft Research Centre and the Museum of Witchcraft in Boscastle (Cornwall). As Williamson was a friend of Crowley’s it is probable that he acquired the lot directly from the artist.
