Marking the display of the many sketches and paintings of the poet TS Eliot by Patrick Heron, Nuzhat Bukhari discusses the fascinating relationship between poet and painter, the nature and importance of these experimental portrait works in art history, their relevance to Eliot’s poetry and some wider notions of the self in philosophy. Dr Bukhari is writing the first book on the many previously unpublished portraits of Eliot in the visual arts.
