Wyndham Lewis Portraits
This website accompanies an exhibition at London’s National Portrait Gallery in 2008. Focussing on artist Percy Wyndham Lewis’ portraits, the exhibition “explores Lewis’s ideas about human personality, which he viewed as complex and unsettled” and presents images of important early modern figures such as TS Eliot and James Joyce. The website takes the reader though key works annotated with information about the artist and the sitters, as well as providing a timeline of Wyndham Lewis’ career.
