Informal sketches or doodles made on scrap paper by choreographer George Balanchine. The largest is a note reading "I went home to eat borshch [sic] with Mel," signed G. Balanchine and followed by a self-portrait in profile. Curving, web-like abstract forms decorate a note signed "To B. [Barbara Horgan] from B." The set for his ballet Liebeslieder walzer is lightly sketched in another drawing, while two smaller sketches respectively depict a female face with vine-like tendrils of hair, and curvilinear abstract forms

The remaining two sketches represent a centaur (seen from the chin down) and a woman in period costume with an elaborate headdress or wig, ruff, and skirt with a train
