Trust Collection of Paintings and Drawings

The Trust owns the largest collection of Lewis's works on paper, as well as several oils, including the great 1937 Red Portrait of 'Froanna', Lewis's wife. The collection is on long term loan to the Courtauld Gallery at Somerset House in London. The works on paper cover the full range of Lewis's working life, from 1900 to 1950. It includes works from periods not well represented in other collections.

The collection is in the process of being photographed and scans will be published on-line when this is finished.

The Courtauld Gallery also owns two Wyndham Lewis works in its own right, including the iconic 1911 cubistic Self-Portrait.

Paintings and drawings from the collection are sometimes on public display as part of the Courtauld Gallery's regular displays. It is also possible to make an appointment to view works in the collection that are not on display.

To enquire about works on view or to make an appointment to see works in store please contact Dr Barnaby Wright.
