Portraits of Eddie Sackville West

Portraits of Eddie Sackville West

Item #6564

Two ink portraits by the aesthete of his friend and contemporary Edward Sackville-West. The portraits are on a sheet of Waldorf Hotel stationary (4.5" x 7") and each bears assorted notations in Tennant's hand: "Eddie- the portrait of a spiritual attitude" and "Cycle of the Ring- your profile shows your soul of a mystic....your marveous eye...."
Sackville-West and Tennant were both sensitive gay men in the circle of The Bright Young Things in the 1920s and Sackville- West is perhaps known as a music critic.
