Sylvia Plath Art

A minor miracle is soon to occur: the Mayor Gallery in London will show some genuine art, instead of its usual tripe! A selection of 44 pen and ink drawings by Sylvia Plath (1932-1963) will be exhibited to the public for the first time from 2 November to 16 December, courtesy of her daughter Frieda Hughes. At the age of 20 Sylvia chose to become a writer, but she continued to draw for her own pleasure. Her Kiosque near Louvre, a pen and ink drawing on paper, is an example of her work (title link). CLICK for The Telegraph slide show of 30 of her drawings.
