Interesting tidbits

His frank and sumptuous nudes were highly controversial. In 1940, Rose Soady, his model then wife, took sixteen crates of paintings, drawings and etchings to the U.S. to protect them from the war. Unfortunately, they were discovered when the train they were on caught fire and were impounded and subsequently burned as pornography by American officials.

Soady’s older brother Lionel remembers Lindsay’s reaction:
“Don’t worry, I’ll do more.”
