On 12 December 1972, Marie-Helene de Rothschild and husband Baron Guy de Rothschild hoisted a soiree at Ferrières, their Paris mansion. It’s our good fortune that guest Baron Alexis de Redé recorded what went on. He writes:

“This time the guests were asked to come in black tie and long dresses with Surrealist heads. The invitation was printed with reversed writing on a blue and cloudy sky, inspired by a painting by Magritte. To decipher the card, it had to be held to a mirror.”
