J.S. Lewinski (1921-2008), Photographer

Jorge ('J.S.') Lewinski

Sitter in 1 portrait
Artist of 103 portraits
Born in Poland in 1921, Lewinski arrived in Britain in 1942 to serve with the RAF. Whilst studying economics in London, Lewinski took up photography as an amateur. In 1962 he started photographing leading British artists and by 1995 he had documented over 300. Highlights of this archive, now held at Chatsworth, were published in Portrait of the Artist (Royal Academy, 2005). Until 1982 Lewinski taught at the London College of Printing. His work was first acquired and exhibited at the National Portrait Gallery in 1972 and has subsequently been exhibited internationally.
