This pastel on artist board portrait is 19.75" x 16". It is signed in the lower right but the signature is indistinct. It is titled in the lower left, "C.S. LEWIS". Lewis did not sit for this portrait. It appears to have been done from a photo by John Chillingworth. (In a letter to Charles Brady, Oct 29, 1944 Lewis briefly discusses a different portrait of him that was done from a photo.) Portraits seldom have the name of the subject on the front so it seems likely that this work was done as an illustration for a periodical or book.Framed and under glass. The condition of the portrait is quite nice considering how easy it is to smear pastels. Shelley and Son Books specializes in C.S.Lewis, J.R.R.Tolkien & the Inklings
