An original b/w photograph by Harold Chapman of Alexander Trocchi and Sally Child, taken in Trocchi's flat in Observatory Gardens, Holland Park, c. late-1970s.

Print measures 17.8x23.9cm. (image size 14.9x22.6cm.). Photographer's stamp and 'Alexander Trocchi' written out in ink by the photographer to verso.

The photograph shows Trocchi in his book-lined study, seated beside a coffee table covered with, among other objects, a small filing cabinet, cigarette packets, two wine glasses and an opened bottle of Möet & Chandon, while Sally Child, introduced to Trocchi by Robert Creeley's wife, Penny, and his lover for the last seven years of his life, looks on.

Fine.
