New. Vorticism was a brief but pivotal avant-garde art movement that emerged in London on the eve of WWI and came to an end in 1919. Led by the dynamic and controversial British artist Wyndham Lewis and named by American poet and critic Ezra Pound, Vorticism swiftly forged its own identity, helped by Lewis's radical magazine 'Blast, 'which was widely influential in both London and New York. Artists who were associated with the movement included Jacob Epstein, Alvin Langdon Coburn, Henri Gaudier-Brzeska, David Bomberg, Edward Wadsworth, Frederick Etchells, and Dorothy Shakespear. This book provides a thorough examination of Vorticism, its origins, and its impact on both sides of the Atlantic.
