Gallery of the Month – Augustus John by George Bernard Shaw

May’s object of the month is the portrait of Shaw by Augustus John that now hangs in the Dining Room here at Shaw’s Corner. Shaw sat for it in May 1915, and was not content with being a passive sitter. The passionate photographer turned the lens on the artist and the photos below are just some of the results. You can see our Augustus John portrait and more of his work on the BBC Your Paintings website. All of these pictures, and many more taken by George Bernard Shaw can be found at the London School of Economics archives.
