Hardback.  First edition.  ‘When one recalls how much of Lawrence’s life was spent in practising or teaching art, in thinking about it, one is surprised at the small attention that critics have paid to this side of his activities,’ writes Jack Lindsay—novelist, historian and critic—in his penetrating essay in this volume on ‘The Impact of Modernism on Lawrence’. Yet this is the first time an attempt has been made to assemble a representative collection of D. H. Lawrence’s paintings — the Mandrake Press volume published over thirty years ago included only those pictures brought together for the famous exhibition raided by the police in 1929. All the paintings from that volume are reproduced here, together with seventeen further pictures, the majority of which have never before been reproduced. Indeed, some of them have come to light only during the preparation of this book: as, for example, the watercolour Lawrence made in the autograph album of one of his pupils when he was teaching at Croydon. Sixteen paintings are reproduced in colour from specially taken photographs of the originals, and the Editor has contributed extensive notes which trace— as far as is known—the history of the pictures and relate their significance to the evolution of Lawrence as man and writer.  Condition: Dustjacket worn and tape-repaired, otherwise very good
