The Mayor Gallery in London is showcasing 44 never-seen-before drawings by American poet Sylvia Plath. The exhibition is designed to illustrate the strong connection between her writing and artwork.

Plath, who is credited with being one of America's most talented female poets, suffered from severe bouts of depression and committed suicide in 1963 aged 30. In 1982 she became the first poet to win a Pulitzer Prize, posthumously, for The Collected Poems.
