The works on paper collected here, mostly in color, span the entire career of Wyndham Lewis, through Vorticism and beyond. Many drawings are from private collections and have never been displayed or published before. The drawings reveal many aspects of this complex and various figure, a fixed star in the constellation of British culture from the 1910s to the 1950s--friend and portraitist of James Joyce and T. S. Eliot--not only for his art but also for his writing.
A notable group of these drawings represents his wife, Froanna; another documents experiences in Morocco; all show Lewis's continuing and unique exploration of a forceful, modern style, especially after the First World War. Included, too, are drawings from Lewis's time in the United States and Canada.
