The exhibition, The Lion and the Fox, is a celebration of the C.J. Fox Collection, the product of one man’s obsession with that great non-conformist of 20th century art and literature, Wyndham Lewis. Over more than fifty years, Cyril (Cy) Fox collected books, art, and other materials by Lewis and other maverick personalities, accumulating not only a vast body of Lewisiana, but also a unique “mega-collection” that is far more than an amalgamation of works by and about Wyndham Lewis and other nonconformists.
