Self Portrait1939 by e.e. cummings
The poet e.e. cummings (1953–1962) created hundreds of paintings and drawings and wrote about art as well. He fashioned line-art and caricatures for The Dial, an avant-garde literary journal published in Greenwich Village. He would paint in the afternoons and write at night. In 1931, he published a collection of his drawings and paintings, titled CIOPW (for charcoal, ink, oil, pencil, watercolor), and he showed his worked regularly at galleries in New York.
