The National Portrait Gallery's third drawing of Lawrence by Augustus John was given by the artist and art editor of Seven Pillars of Wisdom, Eric Kennington in 1937. It probably dates from 1929 sittings associated with John's painting of Lawrence now in the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford, but may possibly have been drawn at the same time as NPG 3188. By 1929 Lawrence had left the Tank Corps and was back in the ranks of the RAF.
