Sickert's handwriting is pretty interesting. I wonder have any graphologist ever investigate Sickert's handwriting of his letters. I'm interested in graphology and when I was reading Ms Cornwell's book and I saw copies of Sickert's letters I noticed those sharp letters in his text -like knives. It can mean the person is violent. But I think the fact that Walter Sickert was a violent man is obvious even without any graphology tests.
In Ripper letters I noticed letters J and Y. The way he usually (I don't now mean those letters which he did using a paintbrush) wrote them can mean that he was impotent. In Y's letter first stops and then he lengthen it with a curve.
To me Ripper letters and Walter Sickert's letters handwritings seems to be from same person. But it's not the same to just look at the copies and the real ones..
Just wondering... and I want to get this thing out of my head. Because this kind of violense upsets me a lot.
