Original Christmas Card With a Portrait of T. S. Eliot

SASSOON, Siegfried Original Christmas Card With a Portrait of T. S. Eliot

An original Christmas card design hand drawn and painted by Siegfried Sassoon. To the front he has drawn a portrait of T. S. Eliot in clerical robes. Inside the 'greeting' is written in red and blue ink and reads, "Wishing you a prim Xmas and a priggish New Year. From Pastor T. Stearns Eliot. Modernist Tabernacle. Boston. Mass." Under this inscription, Sassoon has pasted a clipped signature of T. S. Eliot. In very good condition.

An exemplary caricature of T. S. Eliot by Siegfried Sassoon.
Famously having little time for the modernists, in the years following the First World War Sassoon found himself caught between his beloved Georgian poets and the rise of Eliot, Pound and the Sitwells.
Reflecting on this later, he would write:
"I now live almost entirely detached from the literary scene and the younger generation and am liable to assume that none of them regard me as having any significance in the Eliot/Auden age".
