Found!

My sister Suzy used to be an artist's model, but I couldn't find the sculptor's name who had used her to pose as "Eve".


Well, on Monday, my husband and I went up to New Jersey to deal with Suzy's things that had been placed in storage, and with piles of old letters and bills, and paperwork, I found a postcard from the sculptor's studio, with the sculptor's note (& his name spelled correctly!) on it.

This was my sister, in a different time of her life, before the cancer.
