'Indecent' T S Eliot painting to go on display

Depiction of a penis on a scroll to the left of the
poet's head had caused great offence


A controversial portrait of the poet T S Eliot, which was once rejected by the Royal Academy as indecent, is to be displayed at the National Portrait Gallery in a new exhibition.

I don't know... I'm not seeing it. Here's a different image in a different color scale that's not cropped. I can't really see it on that one either.

Oh yeah, it's a Wyndham Lewis.
