Re: QUERY: Magda Nachmann and Nabokov
Hi. Steve,
The Boyd VN biog. (v. ii, p. 400) has a paragraph on Nachman, a friend of Anna Feigin in Berlin, who supplied VN with some of the volumes he drew from in The Gift. Although BB does not mention it, I vaguely recall that she (an artist) did a line drawing of VN that I have seen somewhere. Best, Don

Subject: [NABOKV-L] QUERY: Magda Nachmann and Nabokov

A colleague has asked me to post the following query to the list. It sounds interesting.
Stephen Blackwell

I was wondering whether you have met the name of Magda Nachman in conjunction with Nabokov? The time must have been around 1936. She helped him with some library books in Berlin. I am looking for correspondence or any other document. Magda was an artist, on whom I am working at the moment.

Thank you.
