Vivian John drawing of Caitlin Macnamara/Thomas c1935.
Lovely Sketch of Caitlin, by her friend Vivian John (One of Augustus John’s daughters). Caitlin Macnamara, as she was in 1935, married the poet Dylan Thomas in July 1937. This drawing , size 11” x 8.5” was probably done at Fryern Court, the John’s home, or Blashford where their near neighbours and friends the Macnamaras lived. (August's John portrait of Dylan, has just been purchased by the N.P.G for £214,000). Vivian John attended the Slade and Euston Road school; her first solo exhibition was at the Cooling Gallery in 1935.
