Augustus John sketch of Caitlin Thomas
Augustus John Sketch of Caitlin Macnamara, (later Dylan Thomas's wife). Circa 1930. The Macnamaras were neighbours of the Johns and two of the daughters ... (Brigit & Caitlin), would pose for him. However Caitlin, perhaps surprisingly, would only pose nude - with her back turned to John. Condition, this is one of several sketches, that John tore up, only later to regret his action and allow his art dealer - Francis Taylor, (the actress Elizabeths father), to piece together again. ( A letter from John to Taylor confirms this). Size:13" x 19".
