Leon Engers-Kennedy: the Man who Painted Crowley
13 September 2014 (Saturday) @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Saturday Afternoon Lecture – Richard Kaczynski
Esoteric artist Leon Engers’ (1891-1970) “soul painting” of Aleister Crowley hangs in the National Portrait Gallery — one of three portraits he did of the Beast. Little explored, Engers had an extraordinary life and his career was interwoven with Crowley’s own artistic forays. His life also takes us into some of the most exciting areas of the early 20th century: Germany’s Bauhaus, secret occult orders, New York high society, and esoteric politicking. This illustrated lecture brings this artist to life. Richard Kaczynski is the author of the definitive biography of Crowley (Perdurabo), in London on a brief visit from the United States.
Price: £7 Ring 020 7 419 8507 or book online
