History

Gladys Anne Hoskins (1900-1979), known as "Froanna" married Wyndham Lewis in 1930. Various sources indicate the couple met shortly after the death of Lewis' mother in 1920. Froanna lived as Lewis`mistress (he continued to have relationships with other women) until they married in 1930 (in order for Froanna to secure a passport to Germany). She lived in seclusion and many of Lewis' associates were not aware that he was married until later in life when his blindness required that she be more public to assist and nurse him. The couple had no children.
