Abstract

Invited to illustrate a new edition of Shakespeare’s Timon of Athens, Wyndham Lewis produced a series of striking Vorticist pieces, including this plate for Act I. Although the proposed edition never materialised, reproductions of Lewis’ works were published instead as a portfolio. Inspired in part by Cubism, Futurism, and Expressionism, their bold lines lean towards geometric abstraction. In 2003, the project’s original purpose was realised when LaNana Creek Press (Nacogdoches, Texas) brought together for the first time Shakespeare’s text and Lewis’ images.
