Red Portrait (1937)

Wyndham Lewis’s portraits of his wife show an affection and warmth which is unmatched in the rest of his work. Gladys Hoskins met Lewis in 1918 and became one of his models. They lived together for ten years before marrying and Froanna became a hugely important artistic inspiration and personal support for Lewis.
