Journey into Barbary
Wyndham Lewis, edited by C.J. Fox
– Morocco Writings and Drawings –
“The writings and drawings of a highly unconventional artist, Wyndham Lewis’s Journey into Barbary is a fascinating account of his travels in pre-war Morocco.
Wyndham Lewis (1882-1957) left England in 1931 to visit the westernmost part of the Berber homeland – known to tradition as ‘Barbary’.
Wishing to avoid what he called ‘the Baedekered blight’ of Anglo-American tourism, Lewis set out for the Atlas Mountains with pens and watercolours to record the changing face of the Berbers.
The result is a blend of two arts, the literary skill of a detached and humorous observer mixed with the drawings of an accomplished painter. Edited and introduced by C.J. Fox, Journey into Barbary contains chapters from Filibusters in Barbary and Kasbahs and Soukhs and a selection of drawings by Lewis.”
