Edith Sitwell (1887 – 1964) was an English poet and critic. While renowned for her avant-garde writings of the 1920’s and 30’s, Sitwell is perhaps best known for the’Parade’ poems, which were set for music-theatre performance by the composer William Walton.

She was the sitter in a number of portraits by some of the finest modernist painters, including Wyndham Lewis (Tate Collection), pictured below.
