Frieda Hughes on Sylvia Plath's art

In The Observer, issue printed on 23 October 2011, Frieda Hughes has more to say on her mother, Sylvia Plath's, art in "Lines of Beauty: The Art of Sylvia Plath."  Excellently, included is a gallery of 11of  Plath's drawings.

Thank you for sharing this artwork with us, Ms. Hughes.

Great to be able to see some of the drawings at last. In my opinion, she is a good painter but a superb draughtswoman.

I agree, Kristina. I find each of these remarkably accomplished.


Kristina Zimbakova said...

Yes. I am particularly impressed by the portrait of Ted Hughes and the Bell Jar sketch.

I love the Ted Hughes portrait. Also, it's interesting to note, in light of our previous discussions, that Frieda refers to the Bell Jar as "semi- autobiographical."
