Wyndham Lewis Gets His Exhibition

The long-neglected* Wyndham Lewis finally gets a showing at a celebrated London gallery. The National Portrait Gallery's special exhibition of Lewis's portraits has officially begun. You can view the NPG's Lewis collection here.

As high modernism's centenary approaches (I'm calling it at 2022), we'll soon encounter a barrage of major exhibitions and conferences, etc. dedicated to the folks involved. Ya think?

* Some argue that neglecting Lewis is appropriate considering his often shockingly offensive views. See my comments here on that matter.

(Perhaps hard to believe, but my interests do extend beyond American politics and yellow journalism. Occasionally, at any rate).
