General Note:
Mail Art. A photocopy of 44a is the basis for the drawing on this envelope, that continues the theme of Musa's family "having fun" while he, in his self-portrait, is in a "black mood" thinking about the construction of 'blackness' in France through the famous performances of Baartman (1814-18) and Baker (1920's).
