Crowley was in Berlin between 1930 and January 1933, where he lived for a while with Gerald Hamilton (whom Christopher Isherwood based his character Mr Norris on), both of whom according to Hamilton enjoyed a small stipend from British Intelligence to spy on each other. Many of his paintings and drawings from the 1931 Berlin exhibition were left in storage with members of the OTO in Germany; these (including for example his portrait of Aldous Huxley) were seized (and presumably destroyed) by the Nazis c.1937.
