DH Lawrence's work as an artist has long been eclipsed by his fame as a writer but he was a keen painter all his life. In 1929 his work was exhibited at the Warren Gallery in London and attracted much attention before the gallery was raided by police and thirteen of Lawrence's paintings seized. He was finally allowed to reclaim them but only on the undertaking that they would never be exhibited again. For years, Lawrence's work has been all but lost. A fine limited edition of reproductions was published by the Mandrake Press to coincide with the exhibition but immediately became a rare collectors' item. Few people have seen the originals as many are now lost and the only collections are in New Mexico and Texas.
"DH Lawrence's Paintings" contains high-quality color reproductions of more of his paintings than any previous publication, including some that have never been published before. It also brings together, for the first time, everything Lawrence wrote about art, including three essays and extracts from many letters and poems. Keith Sagar's comprehensive commentary places the paintings in the context of Lawrence's extraordinary life and work.

Lawrence was the priest of love, but his paintings come closest to straightforward profanity. Here are the dirty bits. -- The Guardian
