About This Item

New York, 1925. Approximately 11 x 9 inches (ca 275 x 225mm). Matted, framed and glazed. Tiny tear in extreme left margin, but fresh and bright (not examined out the frame). One of a sequence of accomplished ink portraits of distinguished writers, artists, scientists and thinkers prepared by the German-born, Swiss-resident artist (d. ca. 1937). Inscribed and signed by Lewis: "To: M. Kastor, in Paris, from an American who has known the gray [sic] & dreaming beauty of Paris streets & will forever return to them. Sinclair Lewis. New York, Oct. 15, 1925." Lewis's inscription dates from the year of ARROWSMITH's publication. The collection of 194 portraits of scientists by Kastor, many drawn from life, is at the Library of Congress. In the 1890s, a portfolio of engravings after his portraits of members of the French Academy was published.
