David Herbert Lawrence (1885-1930) was an outstanding modernism novelist and poet in the 20th century, who was known as "one of the greatest figures in English literature history. It is known that Lawrence's literary career started with poetic songs, and the earliest two poems "Hydrangea" and "Lychnis” began in the spring of 1905, after Lawrence won scholarships. Actually for early Lawrence "writing poetry itself does not represent a commitment to anything, and it is a literary youth who writes naturally in the spare time, which you can take the things themselves happy." (John Watson 43). In fact, Lawrence seemed less interested in painting at the beginning. Since the summer of 1902, Lawrence regularly visited a Chambers in Hargreaves' manor and learned art, made replica of oil paintings with a teen girl Jessy who was good at writing poems and painting. Lawrence modernist poetry and impressionism painting constructed the witness of Lawrence inner thoughts naturally revealed. In view of this, if we examine a single Lawrence's poetry or painting, we cannot fully and accurately explore the essence of Lawrence literature and art. Only literature research paradigm of both poetry and painting is the best choice. Lawrence's poetry and painting are correlated and mutual. Because of painting, Lawrence's poetry interpretation is more vivid, while literati paintings of Lawrence are of great meaning because of external display.
