A meeting with Nicolas PoliakoffJayant Patel
In 1962 I was on a train from Belgrade to Paris on way to London for studies. In the compartment was sitting an old gentleman who spoke English. Through him we conversed with other passengers. The old man said he was an artist and was on his way to Paris. He sketched a drawing of me on a blank sheet of paper. I had not given much thought to that portrait until recently. While going through my old papers I came across that pencil sketch of me. Just for curiosity I Googled the name 'Nicola Poliakoff' which was in the lower right hand corner.To my surprise more information came up about Nicolas Poliakoff. I wondered if anyone would be interested in knowing more about my drawing.
