In 1827 Lawrence painted Julia, Lady Peel, a splendid portrait now among the glories of the Frick Collection.

Add to that a circumstantial haze of news about fellow travelers whose letters are not included--Laurence Olivier, Vivien Leigh, Tallulah Bankhead, Beatrice Lillie ("Lady Peel" to her friends)--plus dozens of photographs, and you have a well-rounded portrait of one of the 20th century's most discussed gay artists.
