T.E. Lawrence is one of the most renowned and enigmatic figures in British 20th century history, famous as much for his exploits during the Arab Revolt (1916-18) and for his literary masterpiece "Seven Pillars of Wisdom" as for his pursuit of obscurity in the ranks in later life. Since his death in 1935 he has frequently been the subject of both extravagant adulation and determined vilification. Published for the National Portrait Gallery's centenary exhibition on Lawrence, the book is written by Lawrence's first authorized biographer, Jeremy Wilson. Reflecting the chronological sequence of the exhibition, the book catalogues and illustrates all the exhibits, which range from the striking drawings and paintings of Lawrence by Augustus John to the dazzling robes and accoutrements presented to him in the desert.
