Henryk Gotlib drawings, circa 1939-1945


65 Portraits in set

65 pencil drawings of international writers, scientists, diplomats and politicians by the Polish artist Henryk Gotlib. The majority of these portraits are very roughly drawn and were sketched by Gotlib at the international conference of scientists held in 1941 by the British Association to discuss science and world order after the war. Some drawings also relate to lunches of the Pen Club during this period. Given by the artist’s widow, Janet Gotlib, 2000.
