Edmund Xavier Kapp (1890-1976) was a prolific draughtsman with variable success. In Personalities he shows a wide range of graphic formulae from the conventional to the daring. He can be as good as the Simplicissimus gang, or as feeble as Wyndham Robinson.

He contributed a portrait of Lloyd George to Laurence Housman's Trimblerigg (1924 and a thinly disguised satirical portrait of the statesman) see above.

For a short period he was married to the fascinating Yvonne, later a member of Communist Party, activist and journalist.

His work can be found at the National Portrait Gallery, London and at the Lakeland Arts Trust.
