Couple finds mother’s Surrealist treasures under bed

CHATHAM — You could say Doris Lindo Lewis’s paintings came from out of nowhere. Or you could say they came from under her bed.

The painter, who was active on and off through her mid-80s until she died, in 1995, didn’t make much of an effort to exhibit her work. Nor did she discuss it with her only child, daughter Sydney Lewis Glover. It was only after Lewis died, when Glover and her husband, J. Denis, traveled from Massachusetts to West Palm Beach to clear out her mother’s home, that they found stacks of unframed paintings under her bed.
